Nonagenarian Irene Pens Third Romance Novel
Even as nonagenarian novelists become less rare, they certainly are not less noteworthy for the vividness, vivaciousness and wealth of experiences they often contain. Irene Martyn is the latest author in her nineties to publish a novel--her third--and she has a fourth in the works. Martyn is somewhat of an authority on romance, having had two silver anniversaries with "two wonderful men." When asked the secret to her longevity, she replied, "You're only as old as you feel, and I don’t feel my age. I enjoy living and have had two tremendously happy marriages."
