Jan Marsh

Author Jan Marshabout this book: I love fictional diaries-Diary of a Nobody, Diary of a Provincial Lady, even, in its day, Bridget Jones's Diary, and keeping a diary of my own much less interesting life, writing this book gave me the chance to fantasise a bit. Not that some of the content was entirely fictional.

Reviews suggest that Baby Boomers or those near in age will probably relate more to Stella Hart's life than millennials as they will get the references and understand the insecurities of being a Woman of a Certain Age with more of her life behind her than before her.

I wrote the book over a period of a year and a half, drawing on my own diary for contemporary references, and I enjoyed every minute of it,
The cover was designed to be homely, containing as it does items from my own home, including the photo of my son and daughter. Stella Hart is no one special or exceptional and the cover reflects her life and what it is/ might be/ like to reach seventy and live the life she has now in which there has been a range of experiences some good, some not so good, but all part of life's rich tapestry. Fortunately, Stella is blessed with a good sense of humour and a healthy sense of the ridiculous, much (I hope) like her creator!
