I want to say Catherine de Siena, but I should probably say George Eliot. (wrong century)?  Try Andre Norton, Madeline L’engle (too young)? Ursala LeGuin (Earhtsea, but my genre is showing)  Like a good mystery?  You can’t beat Agatha Christie, though I always liked Dorothy Sayers.  These women certainly impressed me, but I realize they may not suit your fancy.  I guess what I want to say is don’t give up.  They are out there.

And for the record, I feel I had better say this before someone else does:  some of us men writers are pretty narrow minded as well.;)

I second LeGuin whole-heartedly. And it was my husband who first told me to read a book by her, now I look for her books in stores and libraries.
