Village Talk: Becoming a Successful Author After Age Sixty with Edith Maxwell (4:00 PM)

Award-winning and best-selling Amesbury author, Edith Maxwell, talks about her path to publication. With her first mystery novel published two months before she turned sixty, at sixty-eight Maxwell now has twenty-four books in print, all traditionally published, and is halfway through writing her thirtieth. She'll include a discussion of her daily writing habits, why she uses a pen name, why she writes both historical and cozy mysteries, and more.
