Treva Brandon Scharf

In sharing her life experiences openly and boldly, Treva Brandon Scharf’s book, Done Being Single: A Late Bloomer’s Guide to Love, is a how-to on surviving singlehood with inspirational memoir material woven in.

Done Being Single: A Late Bloomer’s Guide to Love is based on Treva’s popular blog, “The Late Blooming Bride,” which established her as an authority on midlife love. As a marriage first-timer at 51, Treva shares her journey with never-before-told-stories and true confessions from her swinging single days to her life as a midlife wife. From trying to get knocked up on her own, to going into menopause on her honeymoon, Treva tells all.

Treva reveals her story like a true memoirist, dispenses advice like a Dear Abby, imparts wisdom like a female Yoda, administers tough love like a drill sergeant, and shares her secrets like a best friend. As a longtime fitness trainer and current life coach, Treva lives what she writes.

In Done Being Single, you’ll learn about Attachment Theory, The 5 Love Languages, Upper Limit Problems, Adjustment Shock, Imposter Syndrome, and Greek Stoic philosophy. Treva calls out modern feminism and takes on the patriarchy in equal measure. Her research proves that dating is scientific and personal growth is sexy.

More than just a tell-all, Done Being Single: A Late Bloomer’s Guide to Love is a handbook for singles, a love letter to late bloomers, a morale boost for midlifers, and an operating manual for anyone looking to achieve their personal best in life and love. Treva’s test-driven tips are designed to empower, educate, and entertain, all at the same time.

Many brilliant minds are quoted in Done Being Single, including John Gray, Arielle Ford, René Brown, Malcolm Gladwell, and others. Treva will be the first one to tell you it took a village to get her down the aisle, and it took a village to write this book.

There’s something for everyone in Treva’s self-help memoir. Whether you’re trying to conquer singledom or survive break-up hell; get married or get laid; find love or find yourself, Done Being Single: A Late Bloomer’s Guide to Love will give you exactly what you need for your journey: hope, inspiration, and practical advice on how not to fuck it all up.
