What is Silver Reads?

Dear Reader,


In writing my novel Days of Future Found over the last two years, it struck me that there needs to be a fiction genre for older readers. We celebrate YA and Middle Grade and even New adult books that portray the trials and tribulations of growing up and finding your identity while dealing with the harshness of the world. 

Why not explore the complexities of what what it means to grow older.  By that I mean both the joys and the challenges. Older adults comprise the bulk of who actually still buy and read books.

It is difficult to find novels with older characters in leading roles that are not stereotypes. Spare me the old ladies in nursing homes that somehow go out and solve mysteries. I will continue to add titles and encourage suggestions for good reads for silver heads.
