Award winning author, speaker and humorist, Mary Fran Bontempo, has been writing for and about women for over 30 years. With wit and humor, she delivers a message that will inspire women to gain control of their self-talk, re-focus, re-energize, and grab their share of joy as they meet life’s challenges head on.

A former newspaper columnist, Mary Fran did some reinventing in her writing life; that’s when she created Not Ready for Granny Panties, starting with a blog, then books, and finally a lifestyle. The reinvention proved that life offers opportunities at every turn and small changes can yield big results. Plus, there’s fun to be had in the process, which Mary Fran shares with audiences eager to learn how to remain relevant and enjoy life in a rapidly changing world.

Audiences embrace Mary Fran’s life-changing message, which is punctuated with personal anecdotes and laughter.

Mary Fran relates to adults and students alike, and by redefining your “dirty words” and offering a new set of “commandments,” she will energize your organization to move towards personal and professional success with a healthy dose of wit and wisdom on the side!
