Why I wrote Mabel’s Way

I heard people referring to a retirement center as the “home.”  And heard comments about older people not having any fun.  I was not motivated yet. I thought I had retired from writing novels.

Then, enter a new neighbor: Dr. Robert Holt, into the apartment across the hall. He read my other books and immediately began to pester me to write this book.  I fought him for a year.  Then, I found myself making notes about funny or poignant incidences that had happened  at Windsor Point, the CCRC  where we live.  I began to wonder “What could happen if—?”

It became great fun.  Now, if you do not like Mabel’s Way, blame Bob.  If you like it, give him credit.
