44. I don't believe that she is the author but that doesn't mean she didn't have an important role.
I think many of us underestimate the importance of women throughout history. I imagine there were many very powerful men in the past who after a day of running the kingdom or whatever layed down next to their wives to figure out what the hell they would do with XYZ problem.

Infact I would be willing to bet that many decisions both good and bad thought of to be made by men were decisions come up with by their spouse/girlfriend/mom etc etc.

For example I do all of the work in my job but my wife has been very valueable in helping guide me through the more social aspects of work, the personal politics, which has helped my career a great deal.
