Meet the Author: Diann Shope
Widowed, introspective, attractive and witty, Susannah Emory’s problem is that she can’t be content with an easy life. Living in Seattle at the upper end of middle age, she asks, “Now what?” She has a full life–but there’s a blank space in her life she’d like to fill with a relationship. Filling that space will require dealing with modern dating and sexual mores, ageism, and her own insecurities. This is a novel about love in later life, about how difficult it is to overcome old ways of thinking and being and to live more fully. <br /><br />Diann started writing at a meditation retreat in 2009, where engaging in some creative activity was encouraged. To her surprise, three novels and many stories have appeared since then, much of it written at Ft. Casey. She, her husband, and two married sons and families live in Seattle where she reads a lot, rows, meditates, and doesn’t dance nearly enough.

that books were not natural wonders, coming up of themselves like grass.
