Are you interested in stories about feminine or age-related empowerment? Lynne Spreen's debut novel, Dakota Blues, tells a coming-of-age story about a 50-year-old woman. Karen Grace plays by the rules, which gets her exactly nowhere. Ultimately, she'll have to figure out a new set of rules for being her own person in the second half of life. Dakota Blues won the Next Generation Indie Book Award for excellence in Women's Fiction. Her second book, published July 2014, is Middle-Aged Crazy: Short Stories of Midlife and Beyond. Lynne believes in the positive aspects of aging. She refuses to apologize for her age and her characters won't either.
