Eager reader of history, mystery, classics, biographies, steampunk, lit fic, science, scifi, and etc. My reviews are mostly positive--I rarely finish or write about books I don't enjoy. My TBR is too high for that.

Writer of a Certain Age

Novelist and writing instructor FAY WELDON in the New York Times on how looks and aging impact authors:

Publicity photos give up trying to make you look sexy and try to make you look intelligent.

and their subjects:

Young, nubile women attract attention, aging women do not — on the street, on the screen, on the stage and, I fear for the novelist, on the page.
