Books for Older readers (#BFOR) BlogBlitz Day #06

BFOR FB Banner

Books for Older Readers (#BFOR) is a UK based group I belong to, and is having a #BlogBlitz, running for about a month, with different members lining up to post, in turn.

My item is later in the month, and will be posted at my author site ( and I’ll let folk here know when it is posted, but in the meantime, I’ll be sharing links to new articles as they appear through the month.

Day 6 of the #BlogBlitz takes us to Isabella Muir who tells about why she has set her books in the 1960’s. The article is titled – when I’m 64 . . .

Discussion is invited, either here or at any of the BFOR BlogBlitz sites.

Check it out.

  1. I tend to set my stories at least fifteen to twenty years ago partly because as I’m in my sixties, I would find it difficult to accurately portray many aspects of life, especially the speech and attitudes of the teenage / twenties generation. I am very conscious of having read a few books by authors in their sixties / seventies who have tried to do this and failed badly, their attempts grating on you when you read them.
