Hi All! Please welcome my friend and fellow author Jessica Subject!!
The Unlikely Heroine
Most of the heroines that are in the stories I read are either women who have just experienced the biggest heartbreak of their life, or are very strong-willed independent women who aren’t looking for a man, but wind up in love anyway. Not that there is anything wrong with these stories—I do love them—but it’s rare to find women in other situations. How often do we have heroines who have been raped, gone through lap-band surgery, or in Tamara Johnston’s case, have Alopecia Areata—an autoimmune disease which can leave patients bald? I’ve read these stories, too, but these are very sensitive topics and require a great deal of research and emotion included in the story. These heroines must struggle with their own identity issues before they can trust anyone to let them into their heart.
Now, you tell me: What real-world issues do the heroines you read/write about face?
