At 52, Not Too Old for a Debut Novel
Among the many things I wasn’t prepared for after publishing my first novel at the age of 52 was the question I’m asked most often. I’ve heard it at book tour events in England, Germany, and here in the United States. The wording and language vary, but the gist of the question is the same: “Aren’t you too old for this?”
I love this line: "I had crossed a threshold, too old to imitate anyone."
