I hit a big birthday last year and went on a solo road trip. I love reading fantasy and wanted to indulge myself with fantasy novels with an older female protagonist. How many did I find?

I revised and reposted this from my other blog because it fits better here, where I write more about books. Last Summer, I hit a big birthday milestone — which I celebrated by hitting the road and traveling and camping solo down the coast.

The trip gave me plenty of quality reading time in the hammock. I wanted to indulge in some fantasy books; perhaps ones that had solo female protagonists. But how many did I find? Zero, really. This trip was escapist, as many vacations are; it was a chance Fantasy older woman get away, challenge myself, be able to do things spontaneously — have an adventure.

This time, I felt inspired to find some books with older female characters, maybe to motivate myself to continue seeking new adventures into my later years. When I started to think about older female protagonists in fantasy or sci-fi novels, my mind drew a blank. In fantasy, older women tend to be side characters: mothers, merchants, shopkeepers.

I think one reason for the shortage of older female characters as protagonists is reader interest. This, of course, is a rule that is made to be broken — look at all of the Harry-Potter-loving adults — but, generally, a young readership is going to be more interested in reading about young protagonists. Another possibility is that many fantasy novels have a medieval-era setting. In such a world, 40 might be ancient. As I age, while my mind tells me not to slow down, my body is reminding me that I would have no chance of keeping up if I could challenge my former Fantasy older woman of just six years ago to a race.

Patrick Rothfuss, the author of the must-read Kingkiller Chroniclesis one writer who is penning a notable exception to this lack of older female characters in fantasy with his Tale of Laniel Young-Again. Laniel is an older woman who sets off on an epic-fantasy adventure after her husband is gone, and her children are grown see him read from it below. Precisely the type of story I wanted!

Only problem? Nor would I want those tales told; they would be not only dull but embarrassing. However, I almost gave in to the temptation to purchase a ukulele at one point and write some of my own. The people of the campgrounds narrowly averted terrible fate. But getting out, getting on the road, can make you feel young again. And, faced with not being able to get out, it might be nice to be able to adventure along with a fantasy character with which you can relate. What novels, fantasy or otherwise, are available that feature older female protagonists?

The later books in the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon may have been a contender. Claire is older there, and continually has adventures, though they fall more into the area of time travel, romance, and historical fiction than epic fantasy. What were Fantasy older woman books suggested by Twitter book bloggers? Thanks to Ellie the Bookwerm for suggesting this. The books are short and light reading but are extremely fun. The books were written in the s and 70s, and Mrs. Pollifax reflects that era. Pollifax misplacing hers while she engages in espionage is a recurrent theme here.

Fantasy, no. Fun, yes. Thanks to Our Traveling Zoo for recommending this one. The protagonist of Now is the Time to Open Your Heart is 57, and so fits right into the demographic group that I want.

I have yet to read this one, but it may be next up on my reading list. Its premise of a woman being able to see the lives of people written on their skin is fascinating. Have you read any good books featuring an older female protagonist setting out on an adventure?
