Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

When I first developed the concept for STILL BREATHING I intended to demonstrate that you’re never too old to do something significant. In other words, if you’re still breathing, there’s still good for you to do. Lizzie, my main character, is sixty-nine years old when the story opens and a recent widow. Everyone expects her to sit...
