Reader, writer, movie-lover, coffee drinker, Dr. Sandra Antonelli is passionate about the portrayals of older women in the media and fiction. Her masters and doctoral work focused on the viability of mature aged-women as protagonists in romance fiction. Her research includes creative writing, popular culture representations of older women in the media, representations of age, and age marginalization in fiction publishing. All her novels position women over 40 as the leads. She is the author of contemporary romantic comedies A Basic Renovation, For Your Eyes Only, Driving in Neutral, Next to You, as well as the cosy-romantic-suspense spy-thriller-mystery In Service series, beginning with At Your Service.
