When I was in middle school, my mother would make me wear scarves to school on cold winter days. I didn't like it because it made me feel old. When it comes to writing, it shouldn't matter how old you may be...it's how old the "child" is inside you. Why not be like Maria Leibrock Epsztein? In 2006, at 92 years young, she decided to finally write a story of her life during the Holocaust. It was called "Motherhood Behind Barbed Wire" and published by the Polish-Jewish Heritage Foundation of Canada. Pretty good for a first time author, don't you think?
