Three career women discuss finding writing later in life.

MILANA MARSENICH is the author of The Swan Keeper. Girlhood, courage, nature, and flight from a tyrant’s hand in post-frontier Montana. The Swan Keeper is an historical, coming of age novel set in Northwest Montana's Mission Valley in the late 1920s.

RITA SOMMERS-FLANAGAN is the author of Boomers. Award-winning professor and author, Rita Sommers-Flanagan has written a book that will charm, irritate, amuse, and engage readers. It will also change minds and lives. This novel provides an entertaining and excellent read for book clubs, families, and everyone contemplating the meaning of life. It’s about time somebody put the BOOM in Boomers! This book explores the hilarious, challenging, heart-warming, heart-breaking ups and downs of the sixty-something crowd, but it’s a book you can relate to, no matter what your age. I couldn’t put it down. –Jeanne Sheils Twohig, Senior advisor, Duke Institute on Care at the End of Life This book stinks, like aging stinks, like good cheese stinks. I highly recommend all three. –Dr. Scott Wolff, Emergency Care Physician, Duluth, MN

MARY PURDY is the author of Serving the Broccoli Gods. Mary Purdy was a clinical registered dietitian for 10+ years and has an expertise in integrative approaches to nutrition and lifestyle counseling. Her focus is on a food as medicine, whole foods and whole person approach to prevent, address and reverse disease as well as promoting sustainable eating practices.
