Helene Pascal was born and brought up in Southern France where she studied Literature and Journalism at University. She later worked as a journalist, a teacher, then a counsellor. She is fascinated by people's lives and the stories they have to tell, and their search for a way to live that makes sense of their lives. Writing has now claimed its place with this first book, many published poems, and two plays: The Deal, and Then and Now.
Poignant, whimsical, funny, this chronicle describes what it feels like to be looking for love in your sixties, through The Sunday Times ads, when you look back at your past experiences and wonder: could I live up to a new challenge? Would I make the same mistakes? Could I be happy with a man at last?
