Really? At Your Age? by Jacqueline Diamond


JH: Welcome to Books By My Friends, Jacqueline! So happy to learn about your new book Really? At Your Age?

 JH: What’s the blurb for your book?

JD: Is it too late for her dream of motherhood to come true? Betrayed by her former husband, Dr. Cody Matchett has reached the age of 52 with a thriving medical career but no children. After a quake rattles her small town, she’s jolted into considering the fate of her half-dozen frozen embryos—and her long-simmering attraction to hospital attorney Ben Wright. But when Cody sets her sights on love and motherhood, she uncovers shocking secrets. Then there’s the challenge of choosing a surrogate… who might be Ben’s grown daughter! Unexpected twists, heart-tugging truths and moments of laughter fill USA Today bestselling author Jacqueline Diamond’s novels. Welcome to the first book in her Sisters, Lovers & Second Chances series, part of the Better Late Romance line.

JH: What inspired you to write Really? At Your Age?

JD: Although I’ve published a number of romances focusing on women having children and on medical settings, Really? At Your Age? was inspired when a small group of other authors–fellow critique group members–and I decided to write loosely related romances featuring couples over 50, set in a fictional California town. We call the collection Better Late Romances. My book has now given rise to my own series, Sisters, Lovers & Second Chances. Book Two is Don’t Be Silly! At My Age? The third novel, Going Home, At Your Age? comes out this summer.

JH: What one thing do you love most about writing?

JD: When the characters spring to life, say funny things, and tug at my heart.

JH: What’s next for you in the way of writing/publishing?

JD: Once the third book in the Sisters, Lovers & Second Chances series is published this summer, I’ll be writing the fourth book. My working title is The Secrets She Learned.

JH: How can readers contact you?
