Arlene Lomazoff-Marron

In December 2019, about a week before I retired from a 40+ year career as a registered nurse, a coworker commented that I should do something from my bucket list. I immediately replied that I would write a novel. I wondered why I had replied so quickly and with such conviction, as I hadn't thought about writing a book since my adolescence. I took a few writing courses in high school and considered college and a career in writing, but decided to go to nursing school instead. I didn't realize writing a novel was on my bucket list.

“Beneath A Blanket Of Snow” was published in July 2020. Due to wonderful reviews and feedback from my readers, I decided to keep writing. I published my second novel, “If We Had Known”, in April 2021. I am currently writing my third and fourth novels. 

Writing is only one of several new things I have learned since age 50. In the past decade and a half I have learned to play Mah Jongg. I take piano lessons, which I never had the opportunity to do as a child) and practice yoga. I ride a bicycle on trails throughout the US and Canada. I've started studying a new language. I volunteer as an RN in a clinic. 

While many people slow down in their mid to late 60s, I want to experience and learn as much as I can. My motto is "It's Never too Late."
