Hats Off! to Judy Dearlove whose debut novel Play On! was recently released from RCWMS books. Set in a retirement community, Play On! celebrates the resiliency and creativity of characters who acknowledge their own mortality while embracing the life-affirming values of friendship and solidarity. Along the way, they confront age discrimination, a nearly estranged daughter, the tribulations of technology, and a cunning adversary. Ultimately, however, the greatest challenge comes from within.
