Jan Cullinane Author, Entreprenuer, Retirement Expert

Jan Cullinane and Cathy Fitzgerald are the authors of The New Retirement: The Ultimate Guide to the Rest of Your Life (Rodale). Their book has been widely acclaimed and reached the number two ranking on both Barnes& and The Chicago Tribune, Publishers Weekly, and Library Journal have given the book outstanding reviews. Michelle Singletary, personal finance columnist (“Color of Money”) for The Washington Post, chose The New Retirement for her March 2005 book club selection.

Jan has appeared on TV both nationally and locally, has conducted more than 40 radio, Internet, and television interviews, and has published articles for newspapers and magazines including The Suburban Press, Indianapolis Prime Times, and Living Southern Style magazine. Jan has been consulted by a number of free-lancers writing articles about retirement for newspapers and magazines as well.

Through the company they formed, Retirement Living from A to Z, Jan and Cathy conduct retirement seminars and have traveled extensively investigating places to retire and talking to prospective retirees and those who have taken the plunge. Their six years of research and travel culminated in the only guide you'll need for a successful, happy retirement.

Jan has a B.S. and M.Ed. in Science Education from the University of Maryland, and has taught extensively at the high school and college level. She presently lives in Cincinnati with her husband, has three children, and thinks the word "retirement" itself should be retired. She can also speak backwards fluently!
