Title: Win a free ebook from a prize-winning author
older has a lot going for it. But one of the negatives is feeling a
little under-represented in the media and downright transparent on the
street. Recently, with movies like Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, Hope
Springs and Quartet, older people are finally getting starring roles on
the big screen, but there can still sometimes be a general feeling of
insignificance in everyday life.
The Senior Moment When
the transparent thing first happened to me - I seemed to be able to
pass through crowds of people without being noticed - after my initial
shock, I thought, what a great idea for a story! What if someone used
their invisibility as a force not for evil exactly, but for perhaps less
than strictly legal activities. I could already see the TV movie on
Showtime. Right away I knew it had to be a mystery, with a little
romance thrown in for good measure.
only problem was I'd never written a screenplay for television, film or
anything else. But I had written a novel. So my vision for the movie
(starring Judi Dench or Brenda Blethyn or Helen Mirren - take your
pick!) became a mystery novel destined for Amazon and a Kindle near you.

The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
