At a friend’s recent 60th birthday party, a guy I had never met before congratulated me on the release of ‘What Matters Most’. Of course, I beamed with joyful pride. Then he said, ‘I suppose you wish you’d started writing when you were younger…’
The smile slid from my face. I was instantly silenced. Was he telling me I was too old to be a debut novelist
But it was a moot point because as I told him, I couldn’t have written this book when I was younger.
Do you think Meryl Streep is old? Born 1949
What about Helen Mirren born 1945
