Hello, At Last!

Hello, I finally got here!!
Yes!
But as they say: better late than clever.
uhm…
Isn’t that what they say?

nevermind. Edith is here.
I don’t have to say more. I daresay everyone had an Aunt Edith somewhere, but I begin to believe I am the last 20th century Edith. If you know of any others, please tell me. (Edith Piaf doesn’t count. First of all, she pronounced it: “Ead- It.”
Secondly, she’s deceased, alas.)

I’ve been so late posting here because I was meeting 2 – count them – 2 deadlines, and rewrites and copy-edits.
But I’ve done it. And I’m only a little crazier than ever.
And then I went to Chicago this past week to meet my son Adam and his lovely Jeanne, to celebrate my birthday, and see him record his NPR show: WAIT, WAIT, DON’T TELL ME.
(He lives in LA now. I live in NY.)
I had such a good time. Never has getting older been such fun.

Now. What can I tell you that my own website doesn’t?
For one: I’m glad to be here with all these super-talented writers.
For two: I have three books coming this year. One Historical Romance in June as Edith Layton. Another in December as Edith Layton. And one”straight” Historical in November as:
Edith Felber.
This would be difficult if I weren’t a Gemini. Being Schizophenic don’t hurt either. )

What else? I garden. I take photographs. I love dogs. I love cats, but they make me sneeze.
I collect things. As a child, I started with matchbooks and trading cards, and went on to every other thing that took my fancy.
My house needs clearing.
I’ll be coming here every Sunday that I can manage it, and will brag, complain, opine and confide, and answer questions if anyone asks. If I don’t know the answer, be sure I’ll make it up.
Happy to make your acquaintances.

bestest,
That Layton Woman, and the Felber person.

  1. Edith, as always, you made me laugh out loud. Welcome back from the editing zombie zone. And happy belated birthday to someone who shares the illustrious day with the one and only Edward Bulwer-Lytton!

  4. How about Dame Edith Evans? And Eydie Gorme? And “Edie Was a Lady”?
    You and Bulwer-Lytton were born on the same dark and stormy night???
    I’m your biggest fan, you know. You’re the reason I’m here.
    Oh, and somebody said there’d be refreshments…

  7. I eagerly await the new books, but my heart belongs to Arden and has for eighteen years. Your other heroes, fabulous though they are, just have to fall in line.

  10. Edith, you’re back! So good have to you–both Gemini yous–with us, both copyedits having been survived.
    As for me, I’m just home from a Klingon feast, of which more anon. 🙂

  13. It was Wylene, not me, who said her heart belongs to Arden. MINE belongs to Warwick Jones! Though Arden is definitely a runner-up!
    I’d like some of that lemonade to wash down the corrupted cookies, please.
    Oh, I tried unsuccessfully to find the lyrics to “Edie Was a Lady” online; but I was reminded of Edith Wharton!

  16. Hey, Lady Layton! I’m just back from the family bit and glad to see you here. The bottle’s under the sofa. Ring the pull cord for the tea. Let’s hear one for old times and future times!
