I'd add the heroine (not sure if she's 40 yet, but probably) from "Caught in Crystal" by Patricia C. Wrede. Kaylar, I think?

Pretty sure Heris Serrano from Elizabeth Moon is at least 40 as well.

I was thinking of Polgera the sorceress, too. - at least for the volume named after her.

 :D

I am about four pages into The Speed of Dark by Elizabeth Moon, and already I want everybody in the world to read it. This in spite of the fact that the narration is present tense, something that normally keeps me from finishing (sorry, Rebecca Roanhorse!).
