Hi, I’m Sheri McGregor, author of the book Done With The Crying: Help and Healing for Mothers of Estranged Adult Children. There is also an accompanying Workbook, and another book for parents of estranged adult children (forthcoming–see the cover photo below). I also run the site for parents of estranged adult children Rejected Parents.net. Some of my publishing credits are summarized below. You can get a more complete listing, with some links on my publishing credits page.

Topics include nature, the outdoors, business, psychology, health, and home topics – – as well as other interesting opportunities that come my way. You can find out about my three popular hiking guides here.
