Sandy Cardy spent many years teaching Canadians how to navigate the intimidating and arcane world of estate planning. During this time, she’s helped thousands of families deal with the emotional hell of getting “affairs in order” while coping with their own, or a loved one’s, life-threatening illness.
This provided her with the knowledge that made an outstanding success of her 2004 book, ‘The Cottage, The Spider Brooch and The Second Wife.’ (approx. 40,000 copies sold by ECW Press). In this book about estate planning, Sandy uses a fictional format and storytelling style to illustrate how best to handle the financial and emotional issues that arise with the managing of family wealth and intergenerational transfer of assets. Sandy received many compliments thanking her for her innovative way of getting people thinking about their estate plans:
‘The book was a delight – I felt my stress level rise to the breaking point as you showed what appeared to be a hopelessly mired estate planning scenario… (And) it was with great skill and obviously much experience that you were able to bring that family to a satisfying solution.’
‘Thanks so much for the book, it has been really helpful. We’ve been working with my Mom to help her in the estate plans (she recently was diagnosed with ovarian cancer).’’
Coming Soon: Sandy’s third book will be in the health and wellness genre. In this next book Sandy once again uses her storytelling smarts to reveal the secrets of her success in overcoming a death sentence.
