Have you ever felt like you were being ignored or dismissed because of your age? Are you tired of all the jokes about how old you are whenever you have a birthday? Sometimes it seems that ageism is the last form of prejudice that is allowed to still propagate in this era of political correctness.

In our blog this week, we are featuring five amazing authors that all published their first novel after they turned 50.

The dreaded hot flashes, irritability, changes in sleep patterns and weight gain – these are all signs of menopause or perimenopause (pre-menopause). If you are a woman over the age of 40, you may already be experiencing some of these symptoms. If you are a man, don’t stop reading.
