Carole McCall is a former Civil Servant and Business Woman who has worked as a Life Coach, NLP Trainer, Psychotherapist and Hypnotherapist for many years. Working in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Spain and America, she has helped many people to solve their own problems. This book is a story of the glamorous boom years that she hoped would last forever and the difficult busted years that she thought would never end. She is a grandmother of seven small children and lives in Tunbridge Wells with her husband and a small white Bichon Fris called Stella. The Boomer Generation is the tantalising tale of a boom that went bust.
