Stella Fosse is a late bloomer whose erotic life went from blah to ecstatic in her late fifties. In 2016, Fosse and Lynx Canon founded a group for women over fifty called Elderotica Writers, with monthly meetings to share story writing and friendship. Fosse’ story “Terraforming,” about the friendship between a bookish woman in her sixties and a well-endowed cowboy, appeared in the 2017 anthology, Dirty Old Women, and she has read several times at the quarterly Dirty Old Women literary event in Oakland. Stella’s collaborative project, The Palace of Wisdom, is based on an imaginary erotic spa in Big Sur for women over fifty, which includes floorplans, activities, and rules, which she shares in workshops and online, inviting women to submit stories for a themed anthology. Fosse is retired from a career in biotechnology and lives with her partner in North Carolina.
