Author Wendy Michelle has recently released Just In Case Solutions: An Easy Way for Everyone to Organize, Record, and Deliver Essential Information to Loved Ones in a Scenario like Accident, Illness, or Death.
Here is the Synopsis of the book:
Just In Case Solutions provides a way of giving your secure information, your ongoing expenses, and various details about your life to your loved one(s) in a confidential workbook.
It complements your estate planning process as well as providing an inventory of your life data.
Ask yourself, is your loved one prepared to handle the details if you are in an unexpected accident, or are suddenly stricken with an illness and not able to speak for yourself, or when death inevitably comes?
Whether you have one thousand dollars or one million dollars in the bank, loved ones will have the same struggle to determine what you have and where it is located. Once they know something exists and where it is located, they will be able to act accordingly.

We had the pleasure of interviewing the author. Here are some excerpts from the Interview.
What is the hardest part of writing your books?
My biggest challenge was to make sure I was not missing anything so the solution would be able to be used by all. Everyone's life situation is different. People have similar types of documents; however they have different life data as some things that are important to one person might not be important or needed for someone else. Making sure the 10-step solution was comprehensive enough to be used by everyone in the event of an accident, illness or death was definitely my biggest challenge as those scenarios are different. I welcome my challenge to continue as I hope to receive feedback to make the 2nd edition even better!
What songs are most played on your iPod?
I do not have an iPod; however, I love listening to various stations on Pandora, and my favorite is listening to the 70's on 7 station on SiriusXM.
How did you start your writing career?
I started to think about my personal life experiences and my past job positions and realized I would always be able to fill in the gaps with things that were missing. I watched or assisted people with organizing their file cabinets, planning for retirement, helped with accurate account registrations, watched various healthcare struggles, and so much more. People would share details about their life with me but were hesitant to share what they had with their loved ones. Being a detailed orientated person in nature while having the gift to organize, over the years, I have learned that others may need a little help with organizing their own life data before a just in case scenario of an accident, illness, or death occurs. With the support and encouragement from my friends and family, who had faith in me to be able to create an easy solution that would be comprehensive enough for all to use, I choose to create Just In Case Solutions. I truly hope it provides a way for people to record and share their essential information with their loved ones when they struggle to do so and hope it makes hard times easier for those loved ones when a scenario occurs.

Can you tell us something about your book that is not in the book summary?
Yes! Take the time now to organize your life's essential information while you are still able to do so. Please do not wait. Dealing with an unexpected accident, an illness, or a death of a loved one is always devastating. When you add locating essential documents or stepping in to pay bills during this difficult time, it becomes emotional, confusing, and overwhelming. We all have the ability to provide help to them during the hard times, but it will take a little bit of effort on your part.
Just In Case Solutions is a comprehensive workbook that literally walks you through the organizational process to record and deliver all the essential information. Each of the 10 easy steps is expansive to many details within the topic covering all the basic items connected with your daily/monthly routines, important financial documents, health information, and much more! It will think of things you may not. You need to be your own expert to relay your life data to help your loved ones. Once your loved ones know what you have (or don't have) and where things are located, they will be able to act accordingly. Take one step at a time, complete what is needed for your life and when the time comes, it will be greatly appreciated by the ones who love you the most.
You want your family and friends to have good memories of you and not the lasting thoughts of what a gigantic mess you left for them to figure out.
Fantastic! So tell us, how can people find out more about you?
Thank you so much for giving us your precious time! We wish you all the best for your journey ahead!
