It's Never Too Late: First Novel at 93

93-year-old Lorna Page is having her first novel published. She plans to use the book's proceeds to buy a large house in Devon, England, so she can "give a real home to some of her friends" who are currently in nursing homes. She says, "I started writing as soon as I could hold a pencil; fairy stories, poetry, short stories, and now my novel, a who-done-it. Seems I've been writing for a hundred years and that's practically true!"

The press release provides some interesting details of her life before discussing the book itself, A Dangerous Weakness, which will be (self-) published by AuthorHouse in July.

Read the press release.
