Exquisite Retirement

Life, love, and lots of other stuff in the 'third age'

About

I am a recently retired family doctor, interested in all sorts, but especially writing and literature. So much so that I have just completed an M.A. (Masters) in Creative Writing. I write essays, short stories and poetry and am working on a novel. At the moment I’m investigating the world of Gothic and early Romantic literature in Georgian Britain, a world where female authors were able to shine, although sometimes only under a male pseudonym.
