Julie speaking at Cotswold Turramurra
Hello my friends, I’ve been preparing for speaking engagements and podcasts as well as finishing off the new book, and marketing the old book – its all a spin!! But so exciting.
What People Are Saying
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this book, but I loved it! My favorite section, “Our Hearts Are All The Same Color” I plan on sharing this book with the younger kids in my family! Everyone should read this.
Quirky, fascinating, insightful writer.
Julie has written another hilarious book about her and co-senior as they muddle through the pandemic.
She also includes childhood memories, hopeful dreams of travel in the future, tales from the Australian lock-down, losing ‘Covid Kilos’, and numerous medical proglems that plague friends. A fun read for those who have gone through the pandemic as a senior or know someone who has.
A historical and hysterical account of “senior” life during the ever changing pandemic
Delightful, poignant, uplifting & cleverly written stories that both tug at your heart and tickle your funny bone. There is wisdom and simplicity in this easy-to-read collection of eclectic stories of the life of “seniors” in this new world complicated by COVID. It is certain to prevail as a historical and hysterical account of the subtle nuances of adapting to life in the ever-changing pandemic.
Great sequel to her first book!!
I really enjoyed all the stories and especially loved the “Just a Thought” and “Sage Advice” at the end of each chapter. My absolute favorite section was the end though because it truly spoke to where I am at now….trying to create and accept and enjoy my “authentic” retirement/life!! I’m lucky to have an amazing life and co-senior on the journey with me and that should be my first thought every day!
Although I was not really looking looking forward to this next stage of my life, the author shows that there is much to look forward to.
And, I learnt a whole lot too!
I started reading this book and thought that it was a sometimes amusing, sometimes sad, sometimes laugh-out- loud-funny celebration of senior citizenship.
As I read further, it slowly became apparent that it was a celebration of life, by a woman who has led a full one. And who is still living it.
So I am moved to cry, ‘You go, Girl!’
On behalf of the Probus club of Gordon Park, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to you for your excellent presentation on Zoom yesterday (Monday 6th September 2021). At this stage, I have already received glowing reports from some of our members on how much they enjoyed your talk and found it to be very inspiring. I think that it was also a great ‘tonic’ for them to have a laugh and relate to your many experiences, especially the “Senior moments”. Something we all could do with at this time of lockdown.
I’m Now Called A Senior WTF is an absolute must read.
Not just another book on how to cope with ageing, this book will bring joy, inspire bravery and speak to your soul. I would recommend all “boomers” among you, grab a copy and enjoy the read.
This is St Ives local, Julie Sursok’s, first novel and the honesty of Sursok’s writing made me laugh out loud. She throws her powerful bold words out there and they are a delight to read. Sursok does not hold back, from page 1 she introduces herself and asks to be called Julie – this I will now honour.
I am grateful for Julie’s reminder that I am not alone with my little “fobies” and peculiarities. I choked with surprise at her irreverence or should I say cheekiness when discussing things like our uncontrollable bodily noises when reaching Seniorship. Julie brought to mind my many idiosyncrasies that I have tried to cover up during my life. We are all really quite funny. In the future, I will laugh whenever I accidentally commit a faux pas. I know I won’t have to wait long!
