Her journey began in college when she satirized Ingmar Bergman's classic film "The Seventh Seal" and had her future husband play Death. Then her second wedding was such a fun event, it inspired her to write a column called "Matchings, Hatchings and Dispatchings." When readers responded most to her columns about death, she went on to write the award-winning book, A Good Goodbye: Funeral Planning for Those Who Don't Plan to Die, and later wrote Kicking the Bucket List: 100 Downsizing and Organizing Things to Do Before You Die. She's also a pioneer of the Death Cafe Movement, where people have fun keeping the Grim Reaper at bay.
