I'm new to the SM role and have seen a few references on this site to different books/resources, especially those on disengaging.  Can anybody please point me in the direction of where to find?  Thanks!

"Stepmonster: A New Look at Why Real Stepmothers Think, Feel, and Act the Way We Do" is kind of the gold standard and often recommended.

No personal experience with this book, but it looks interesting:

STEP BACK: A Stepmother's Handbook by Margit Eva Bernard

Search "disengage" on this site and you will find lots of information on disengagement. If you Google "step parent disengage" there is also lots of information.
