We had already built our careers, been married, maybe divorced, re-entering the dating world. Where were our love stories? Over the last couple of years, various terms for these romances have been used.

I think seasoned romance seems to be sticking. They have lived life and come with baggage of having life experience. Readers have always enjoyed seeing themselves reflected in what they read.
But when a woman who is forty looked to romance, she rarely saw herself. And I think dating for someone who is 20 is different than dating in your 40s. These people still live full lives. When I thought of the Daring Divorcees series, it was developed with the idea of showing a group of friends who are ready to move on to the next phase of their lives. They push each other to move forward to go after what they want.
They challenge behaviors and offer support when needed.
Part of my favorite thing about writing older characters is exploring the baggage they carry. They try to minimize the impact of their histories and hangups. As I said, all of the characters in my series are divorced, so they have exes, some of whom are still in the picture. Overnight, he becomes a full-time dad to his two teenagers. These are realistic problems for people to face.
Sometimes life can feel overwhelming and falling in love only complicates that.

I loved writing Trevor and Callie falling in love when they both struggled with the idea of being together. And even in the midst of dealing with this upheaval, Trevor and Callie still find love. I hope that seasoned romance not only continues to thrive, but that it becomes a normal aspect of stories. People are living longer healthier lives and love needs to be part of each phase of our lives. Shannyn is an occasional English teacher, who also works as a part-time editor while raising her three kids. Even though she wrote from high school through college mostly poetry , she'd never considered a career as an author.
Writing fell by the wayside as she focused her energy on creating lesson plans and new and fabulous ways to torment her teen students. But, I still read romance almost every day. And, after thirty-plus years of practicing law, I am living my dream by writing and publishing romance novels and romantic memoir.
That's why my favorite heroes now are in their 40's, 50's and 60's!
Writing Seasoned Romance
Up till a few years ago, you could not find a romance novel featuring a "mature" couple. You mind find an older man and a much younger woman or maybe a "cougar" story of an older woman and a much younger man, but very few couples who were looking for a second chance at love.

Not a silver fox to be found! Now, it's a whole different ballgame! Small publishing houses and indie authors are putting out romance novels aimed at the demographic. My good friend and mentor, LuAnn McLane has always featured an older couple, usually as the secondary romance, in her Cricket Creek series. Karen Booth has written my favorite aging rock star series and started a group on Face Book called Seasoned Romance! Roxanne St. Claire is breaking records with her Timeless heroes down in Barefoot Bay!

And everything I write has always featured main characters in this age group. After all, you write what you know And, today, I finally re-released the erotic romance novel that started this roller coaster ride for me. But, doing the final edits on Kat also warmed me up considerably. I guarantee that a good steamy romance will take the chill off and warm your heart.
