Senior authors

Senior authors Many people begin to write in their later years. The write poems, short stories, novels and non-fiction.

Some us enjoy reading works by older writers. We have a sense that they know more about life and their thoughts often resonate with our own. I want to make it possible for readers of this web site to find some of these authors AND to give lesser known senior authors a bit of free publicity.

So here is a list of seniors who have written books that might interest you. If you know of an author who should be included her, do contact me and let me know. (There is a form at the end of this page.)

  1. Bob Funk once lived on Long Island (NY). After a major snow storm he decided to go where life was a bit warmer and headed to California. He now lives in Arizona where he lives an active life, writes poetry and has penned a set of daily reflections. If you want to check out his web site click and his book click HERE
