When life falls apart, humans often resist the natural law of change and grasp even tighter to the past. Sometimes the key to beginning again requires bold, radical action, maybe even a complete 180.

Beverly Willett is a former NYC entertainment attorney who got in her car at midlife, left the Big Apple, and drove south to begin, again. She lives in Savannah and has just completed a memoir. She has written for dozens of the top national newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Newsweek, The Washington Post, Salon, The Daily Beast, The Huffington Post, Woman’s Day, Family Circle, All You, Prevention, South and Savannah Magazine. She has spoken nationally on radio, co-founded the Coalition for Divorce Reform, and serves on the board of the Chatham-Savannah Authority for the Homeless. She has two daughters.
