I'm a 50-something American woman. Even though I've always loved to write, I've put it aside for some time. Now as I contemplate my nearly empty nest, dusting off my writing chops seems to be a good move.
My favorite literature includes:
C.S.Lewis - Chronicles of Narnia, Space Trilogy, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters
Diana Gabaldon - Outlander series
L.M. Montgomery - Anne of Green Gables series
Sigrid Undset - Kristin Lavransdatter
My tastes vary, depending on my mood.
I have always been an avid reader, and love all things Potter!
