Like many authors, I am a member of the Romance Writers of America. They have recently revamped their website and have separate “forums” where various topics can be addressed.
I just learned there is now a romance novel category called “seasoned.” No, this is not about stories set in restaurants. It features heroines and heroes who are, gasp, age 30 or more.
In a world where 60 is the new 40, or whatever the phrase is now, do we really consider 30 to be seasoned? I don’t know about you, but I was barely hitting my stride at age 30.
Have you read any books with “older” protagonists? I haven’t yet and would love some suggestions.
