On the eve of her 50th birthday, a southern woman who seemingly has it all--husband, children, career and a BMW convertible--sets out on a journey of self-revelation that takes her from Italy to the rain forest highlands of Panama. Can she find the courage to risk everything for the life and love she has always wanted?

Seeking both adventure and opportunity in the second half of life, she said good-bye to the comfort of her familiar mountains, and hello to the exotic, remote mountains of Panama. She did not know that in the process she would finally become the woman she had always wanted to be.

More than a 'coming out' story, Risking Everything is the chronicle of one woman's determination to live life on her terms. It is a true tale of adventure, expatriation, betrayal, loss, and finding surprising love in the most unexpected place. Best enjoyed with a good cup of coffee!

About the Author In the highlands of Boquete, Panama, Elizabeth Worley lives a quiet life growing coffee and medicinal plants. It wasn't always this way. Once upon a time in another life, in another place, she was another woman. What happened?

A southern woman who seems to have it all--husband, children, successful career, friends, and a BMW convertible. So why, on the eve of her 50th birthday, does she hop a jet for Europe? Alone?

Trend setter? Copy cat? A mid-life crisis run amok? Or is there something deeper fueling her flight from all that is comfortable? She doesn't know, she doesn't ask. She just goes.

Elizabeth Worley grew up in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, where she wandered the misty hills, found where the wild ginseng grew, and knew the back pathways to secret waterfalls and vistas. Somewhere along the way, she lost herself amid the challenges of marriage, children, career.

Risking Everything: Coming Out in Coffee Land is a story of adventure, betrayal, hope, and ultimately, living life on one's own terms. It is a story for women and for men, for anyone who wonders, "Is this all there is?"

Risking Everything: Coming Out in Coffee Land is the winner of the 2011 Global eBook Award for LGBT non-fiction. Poignant, funny, shockingly honest and available in every conceivable electronic format from the author's website or from Amazon.

Elizabeth shares life with her amazing partner, a very neurotic cat, Charlie the Dog and a dozen fat hens.
