I’ve been a writer a very long time. Since before I could form letters, I scribbled circles in notebooks and spouted my make-believe stories to all who would listen. I won my first poetry contest when I was in middle school. And that did it. I knew I wanted to be a writer. Needed to be. So I wrote like mad. Paid my way through college with poetry and short story contest winnings.
And I read. I fell in love with those strong, virile men of the romance novel: the pirates, the cowboys, the firemen. I was whisked along on adventures where the pretty girl was swept off her feet by a beautiful man. But, then something changed. I changed. Romance changed. Those pretty girls became strong and brave in their own right. That girl would draw her sword and spar with pirates. She would sit astride a racing stallion speeding to her destiny. She would run into the burning building and save her fallen man; she was the hero.
It is in my fictional life that I write about these same women – the courageous, stubborn women who follow their own dreams and create their own futures.
In writing Love’s Justice, I took a girl who had been devastated as a teenager and made the anguish she felt then worse once she was grown. As a young child, the perception of her life was rosy and sweet, like a golden afternoon. As an adult, she faces the reality that her childhood was filled with lies and deceit. In her story she is pushed into situations where only her strength and ingenuity prevail. She finds love with a wonderful man, but it is only her determination and sheer will that bring love’s justice to their lives.
In my real life, the universe has graced me with three daughters. I will do all I can to raise them to be courageous and stubborn; determined and willful so that they can lift their swords, sit astride that racing stallion, be their own heroes. So that they can achieve their dreams; create their destinies—like the strong women of romance.
