NDEr, Author of The Fun of Dying

An accomplished professional, Roberta Grimes is a financial planner and an attorney licensed in Massachusetts, Florida, and Texas. While money is an oft-discussed topic, Grimes is well versed in a subject not many are comfortable with: the afterlife. For the past 40 years, she has pored over centuries of research and accounts dealing with death.

From her first experience with the “other side” at age 8, Grimes has immersed herself in all she could find on the topic. While many find the reality of death grim, Roberta Grimes has discovered the hopeful truth about the afterlife, and has set out to help others see this, too.

Her new, uplifting book, >*The Fun of Dying: Find Out What Really Happens Next! * (Greater Reality Publications, 978-0-9802111-1-5, 2010, $14.95) explains the reality of what happens before, during and after death. “For most people, dying is the great unknown,” Grimes says. “So for most, this universal trip is as scary as sailing used to be when the flat Earth had edges and the sea was full of dragons.”

Roberta recently helped to found afterlifeforums.com, which is a website for the discussion of death and spirituality from a non-religious point of view. She hopes her conclusions on the topic can alleviate many people’s intense fear of dying, and can help the grieving cope better with their loss. Using her knowledge of the other side, she aims to spread the positive reality of death, changing lives as she explains how after death life is, indeed, fun.

Born in Worcester, Mass., Grimes is a graduate of Smith College and Boston University School of Law. She continues to practice small-business law in Massachusetts and Texas. She has been happily married for 39 years, and she enjoys her three adult children and four young grandchildren. Roberta says that her family “tolerates” her obsession with death, but when she wants to talk about it they change the subject!
