Readers Want More Romances with Older Couples. Here’s Why We’re Committed to Writing Them.

#GrownFolksRomance / #SeasonedRomance Reader Discussion on YouTube



In case you missed the latest episode of my YouTube show, Story Behind the Story, it was another lively, interactive reader and author discussion. This time we talked about romance featuring older protagonists. Particularly the female protagonists which have always tended to skew much younger in romance, even though the average age of readers is 35-39.

Topics Mentioning This Author

Goldie Hawn
“The lotus is the most beautiful flower, whose petals open one by one. But it will only grow in the mud. In order to grow and gain wisdom, first you must have the mud --- the obstacles of life and its suffering. ... The mud speaks of the common ground that humans share, no matter what our stations in life. ... Whether we have it all or we have nothing, we are all faced with the same obstacles: sadness, loss, illness, dying and death. If we are to strive as human beings to gain more wisdom, more kindness and more compassion, we must have the intention to grow as a lotus and open each petal one by one. ”
