Annaliz Victoria Fallon, much-loved elderly heroine of Old is a Four Letter Word, returns in Ethel Stockton's sequel, Older is Better. Annaliz's independent spirit has not been broken by having a stroke. While living in an assisted living facility in the Pacific Northwest, she refuses to succumb to life in a wheel chair. Her determination drives her on as she makes plans to return to Mexico-to her favorite chair, her patio, and her friends.
About the Author
Ethel Stockton, known as Aunt Ethel, is 91 years old. She has 2 sons, 6 grandchildren and 8 great-grandchildren. Born in 1915, she lived most of her life in the Pacific Northwest, where she spent 50 years as an Interior Designer. She believes everyone should live their lives with gusto; that age doesn't matter. It is only what you make of it.
In 1967 she wrote her first book, titled Stretch Your Dollars, meant for elderly women who had no idea how to handle money.
In 1999 she published a diet/cookbook titled A Cookbook for Losers, using the Atkin's diet as a base but with a twist.
In 2003, Old is a 4-Letter Word was published: the story of an elderly American woman, living in Mazatlan, Mexico, who insists on living life her way, hating the word OLD, and making believe it doesn't pertain to her.
Aunt Ethel's second book is titled Older Is Better, a sequel to Old is a 4-Letter Word. Third in the Annaliz series is Not Too Old and Ethel's delightful heroine returns here in Old Fashioned.
