please, can I have some more

For Day 22 of the Supposed Crimes 30-day Challenge: Are there topics or issues you wish were more common in books?

sir please GIF by Cheezburger

My wish list:

  • MC’s who are in midlife or later, established mid-level careers or new entrepreneurs.
  • Romance challenges (not breakups/divorces) with established couples working through it
  • Realistic diversity in characters – biracial and multi-ethnic
  • Religious diversity – more Jews, Muslims, Sikhs, Hindis, pagan, etc.
  • More familial diversity – there seems to be a lot of birth/nuclear (that break down as a plot point) and a lot of “found” families, but not a lot of step families.
