London, Jan 17 : Veteran comedienne Joan Rivers is all set to switch over her career to becoming a crime author.
The 74-year-old comedienne revealed that she would now focus on her unfulfilled ambition of writing fiction rather than jokes.
"I want to write mystery stories. There's a series of books I want to write. There's so much work to do. That's what gets me up every morning and makes me crazy when I have more than two days off at a time," Daily Express quoted her as saying.
Joan seems in no mood to retire so soon as she rejects the suggestions of taking on an easy life.
"People always say to me, 'When are you going to retire?' Retire and do what? Tell my mailman jokes? I'd rather carry on going out and telling people jokes - and writing books, too," she said.
"I don't fit in at all with friends who are in their third acts. They're retired and go on holidays, go to dinner and play golf - how boring!" she added.
