Welcome to my blog!I write paranormal romance...
action packed adventure,
and steamy romance!
for more info and samples of my book visit my site:
As fiction writers - especially the romance genre - we see the word hero and automatically think hunky, muscular men who dash around saving women from dragons, loneliness, evil step-mothers, bad boyfriends, and so on. And aren't they a dream to lust after?
As readers we may sigh and fan ourselves (or in my case, hunt down our partners and tackle them onto the bed), when we read the brave and gallant acts our fantasy heroes perform.
But we leave our fantasy crushes for the storybooks and trudge through our lives never giving a second thought to the real heroes among us. The ones who sacrifice the comforts we enjoy every day to protect our country. Heroes that devote themselves to our safety, independence, and freedom. Sometimes it's in grand acts of bravery, but most of the time it's in the mundane things we don't think about. Some have been through hell and back. Some are in hell right now. Others were in a different hell long ago that we'd never understand. Many are lucky enough never to have seen hell. All are important. All have served us in ways we'll never know. We owe each of them our respect and gratitude.
So, thank you, to the veterans and soldiers, the real life heroes.
"Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."
