    GREAT interview! Loved it! I guess I can totally relate as I too have had to wait almost half a century to get my writing dreams into gear. The first chapter of Dinosaurs and Cherry Stems sounds amazing. Best of luck to you, Susan!

    Sounds really good! I will go hunt it down. I can sympathize with all the things that get in the way of a writing career. I used to write stories as a teenager but life got in the way and I didn’t write my first novel till last year. It is a lifelong dream come true (always thought I would write one in the genre you wrote so imagine my surprise to find myself writing a horror/adventure instead!)

    I always love these tales of publishing in mid-life. Plus, this novel premise is a winner-SO many women will relate!

    That opening chapter is really good. It hooked me. I’ll have to add it to my goodreads list.
