Firstly, let me say up front that I am an author well actually only published one short story so far , and have four books in the pipeline all with character over 50yrs. Being a mature woman myself I was frustrated that all characters in romance novels tend to be s.
With an aging population I could see that the Boomers were being forgotten. It has only just been created and we only have a few members, so please join if you think it is a good idea. The short story I have just published is really aimed for the British humour market think Hyacinth and Margo , but it is free if anyone want a copy at Smashwords or Goodreads.
Middle Age: A Romance - Wikipedia
Valentine romance or not Countdown to Love. It will only take you an hour to read. My next book to be published it Touching Ed and it follows Abby 50 and Ed 62 as they meet, fall in love and attempt a normal love life with all the aging problems that life throws at people namely erectile dysfunction, menopause, false teeth etc. There is no genre for Silver Years books and it is hard to differentiate a romance novel with other novels when uploading it to amazon etc.
What it needs is a sub genre that specifies romance for the maturing generation. After all, most of the population will get there in the end. I am going to look out for Jeanne Ray, thanks Pat for that info. Well, everyone, my heroes and heroines are all older in my contemporary romances. They met back in the San Francisco hippie days, had a passionate romance, then separated. Now, forty years later, they meet again.

Allyson Abbott - January 28, Reply Hello. They can be very multidimensional. The so-called older characters in my stories are people I know best — my friends and me. The problems they face are the ones we face. Young love was nice, when we were young, but it was like eating an appetizer. Older characters have baggage, and I invite them to bring that baggage into my stories. Their life experiences deepen and enrich the characters, and provide an extraordinary pallet to draw from when it comes to their reactions, both physically and emotionally.
Characters with a wealth of life complexities baggage blossom on the page, and the romance becomes more than sex — it is complex, mature and deeply sensual. Finally, after years of raising children and working 40 hours a week, I can concentrate on writing. And with self-publishing, I can write what I want.
I no longer feel the need to fit body part to body part. Romantic tension is enough for me. In my epic romance The Bellator Saga, our hero and heroine are tasked with restoring American democracy. In a lot of speculative fiction, we see young adults leading the way. I got sick of them having all the fun and wanted to show that older folks 40s and 50s are the ones getting it done and having a healthy physical relationship at the same time!

Karen Booth, author of Bring Me Back I write what I want to read, and as a woman in her 40s, I want to see characters my age being just as sexy and vibrant as they are in real life. Alexa Rowan, author of Winning Her Over Older characters are another way to write diverse, realistic romance. Michael Webb brings you unique and creative ideas most people would never think of! But what you really need to ask yourself, is how much time do the two of you really spend together alone?
No kids. No distractions. Just the two of you.
