As I near the birthday that marks my 80th year, I can reflect back on the ways God has worked in my life. How could I imagine that I would still have the pleasure of writing books in my senior years? As I’ve shared with others, the Mary book, about the mother of Jesus, was an anointed book. That I was to write it, was clearly impressed on my mind. What a blessing to get to know her in a different way. On May 6th at the main library in downtown San Diego, I will have the privilege and pleasure of sharing about writing the book, how it came about and what I learned in delving into her life. I will have an hour and a half, from 11:30 am to 1 pm to talk about her and the writing life. What a blessing to have that book chosen as one of the 12 the Friends of the Central Library choose for their book of the month. They choose 12 books from those submitted to the Local Author’s Fair in January. There are over 300 writers in San Diego! Some days I feel like Grandma Moses and other days I feel like I’m many years younger. Maybe it is the writing that keeps my mind sharp and keeps me young at heart. If you’ve always wanted to write, become a senior and then felt it was too late, let me encourage you to give it a chance anyway. My first book was published by a traditional publisher (Revell) when I was 71. Don’t let age stifle a dream!
