In the early years of my second marriage, I started writing poetry, and also short stories for my step-children. Then some 5 years ago my then 14-year-old-grandaughter had 2 novellas published and I was inspired to try writing a novel myself. I wanted to write something that would show older people were capable of friendships, relationships, and even love. So, despite having never read a single romance book the idea of writing my very own romance novel was born.

That debut novel, Grace’s Turmoil, is available at, as an eBook and from Amazon as an eBook or paperback.

Two sequels to Grace’s Turmoil are planned and the trilogy title is Not Too Old for Love. I recently completed the first draft of chapter one of the first of these sequels. The main characters for this were minor characters in Grace’s Turmoil and have been promoted for this new book.

The characters for Book 3 will also be taken from the initial book,  and their possible relationship will probably be hinted at in Book 2.

All the books in the trilogy will be stand alone novels, but readers will benefit by reading then in sequence so they can see characters and relationships develop.  The series is a fun and easy read for all lovers of romance novels. But they are seasoned romances and as such will particularly appeal to mature ladies who want to be able to identify with their heroines. At the age of sixty-eight, Grace has been through a painful divorce and brings some emotional baggage to her potential new relationship. Her hero is aged seventy-one.

So, Seniors, Baby Boomers, etc. Here is a book right for you, with sequels planned. There’s love, romance, sex, intrigue and plenty of conflict. Be sure not to miss out.
