The big fiction sellers these days seem to be aimed at young people -- Rowling’s Harry Potter series … Meyer’s Twilight series. Those two authors have young people and teens reading. Everyone agrees, that’s a good thing.
But the majority of readers are adults. And a big part of those adults are baby boomers. And seniors read. They read a lot.
Yet, we don’t hear a lot about senior readers, let alone senior protagonists.
We’re going to change that - you, me and Straight From Hel readers. This coming Thursday, author Jean Henry Mead is going to guest post and she’s not only talking about senior sleuths, she’s writing them! Plus, she’ll stop in during the day to answer any questions you have. And I hope you’ll have a lot of them. Her latest book is A Village Shattered. Check out her website, then come back Thursday to read what she has to say and join in the discussion in the Comments section.
