About the Author

Tim Bauerschmidt (Author) Like most people who find themselves caring for one or both of their elderly parents, Tim and Ramie were not experts in the field. Ramie was a high school counselor with a background in parks and recreation; Tim tabled his journalism degree to remodel homes. Later, they chose to embrace a nomadic lifestyle with Ringo, their Poodle. In 2011, the couple began sharing photos and stories about 'life on the road' on their blog www.poodleinapod.blogspot.com. Ramie started the wildly-popular Facebook page, 'Driving Miss Norma', in late August 2015. A few months later, the page went viral and now has over 500,000 followers from around the globe. Miss Norma's story has been covered by nearly every major world news-media outlet, and the book about her year-long journey is published in at least eight languages.
