Retired at last. Doting great-grandmother of 5 darlings - most of the time anyway - I may be doting, but I don't want any future Lydia's.
Interests -- Music, particularly classical, but like most types, with usual older generation's dislike of heavy metal, rap, etc. Read science fiction, mysteries and thrillers, military history, (esp. Civil War), science, and economics.
I am tolerated by two 15 year old Siamese cats, and in return they step on the keyboard and nuzzle the monitor.
Many years ago I was a piano and voice teacher, gave a few recitals and concerts, played in orchestras. Injured elbow and segued to anthropology, but wound up as a death counselor in a hospice. Segued again into accounting and management, and became administrator in multi-doctor clinics. Got tired of dealing with egotistic doctors and moved into tax accounting until I retired. Somewhere along the line, in the mid 1980's I started writing and editing non-fiction in my spare time, and learned I loved it. Now, at 73, I just wrote my first fiction. I just read all this and am wondering how I did all that stuff.
