About the Author | Personal Narrative

Becoming an author late in life is something most people might pass off as a far-off fantasy rather than a reality. But when I read that Alan Bradley had written his first book at age 70 ("The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie"), I decided I was much, much younger than that and what the heck, I should just go for it. So that's what I did.

For most of my adult life I was a business owner. It always afforded a good life where I could take care of my 3 kids and later, to travel the world with my husband. But when my grandchildren came along and I grew weary of the 9-to-5 life, I looked to filling my days with my creative passions. I wrote must of my first book, "Numberless Dreams," while sitting at my desk in a Salt Lake City high-rise office building. I was 54 when it was published. When I formally retired a few years later, I turned my attention to my second book, "I'll Tell You What I Think," which I published at 66. I may have started late in life, but I made it happen and couldn't be happier. I now encourage anyone with the desire to follow that dream.
