Author: Gail Cushman
Out of Time is the second book in Gail Cushman's Wrinkly Bits trilogy and humorously ponders the concepts of love through the years. Logan, a retired podiatrist is smitten with Audrey. Like a love-struck puppy, he follows her home from a cruise, but she and husband Griff have been married for nearly fifty years and her marriage vows still reign supreme even though she's been lonely and isolated for decades. Griff is a good man, and she loves him, but the spark went out of their marriage long ago. Realizing she has fallen deeply in love with Logan, she finds herself wondering if there is a chance for a better life, even this late in her game. Audrey and Griff's adult children live a state away and ask Audrey to babysit, leaving Griff, who is on the mend from an injury, at home. Logan seizes his opportunity and accompanies Audrey across state lines. Audrey's adult children are dumbfounded to find her with another man and rush back to Hunter to implore retired schoolteacher Phyllis to care for Griff. Phyllis, who can't resist a new adventure, launches her Academy of Romance, to teach Griff how to be romantic, proving that you can get carried away by love and libido no matter your age. About the Author Gail Cushman's husband often teased that she had two useless degrees, a B.S. and an M.A., both in Sociology, but he was wrong. Those degrees made Cushman a master of people-watching and now with twenty cruises and a lifetime of doing what she does best, she has observed more senior hijinks than she could possibly remember. She is now sharing that mischief with her readers. Cushman taught composition for eleven years and spent three years as a Marine Corps Officer. Now retired, she spends her time writing and authoring a bi-weekly blog "Wrinkly Bits" available at Wrinklybits.com. Cushman's dream is to remind all of us that age is only a number-it's time to get on with living. She lives in Idaho and has two grown children and four delightful grandchildren.
