Rumil and Elizabeth: The Leading Ladies

I’m back from my vacation, so it is time to get to work!  This is a blog entry I had done for another website, but it was so popular that I thought I would share it here.  Yeah, maybe that is cheating, but I felt the topic was important enough to share:

A friend who read all my books so far commented the other day about the strong female characters I write. She was semi-impressed at the detail and care I put into writing each lead female (Rumil for Power Play and Elizabeth for The Cactus Killer). Surprised at the strong reaction, I polled some others I know personally who read my books and their opinions were the same; both characters stole the show.


When I started each novel, it was important to me that both Jack and Victor have women standing beside them who made them stronger. If you have read Power Play, I think it is easily seen how Jack grows more and more confident under the care of Rumil. To me, that is real life. Just about every man has a woman (be it a mother, girlfriend, wife, friend, etc…) who makes them strive to bring out the best of themselves. Hell, if it wasn’t for my wife and her confidence in me that I can actually write good stories, I would have never published anything.


So my friends and readers, whether you get lost in Asgard with Jack or Full Moon, New Mexico with Victor, remember one thing. If it wasn’t for Rumil and Elizabeth, both of those guys would have died in like chapter three or four. Let us all take a second and raise our glasses to the strong women in our lives who let us succeed where we may have failed.
