Who can resist a military hero? Strong, brave and self-sacrificing, they're made of yumminess. Several of my favorite authors focus on military heroes. Suzanne Brockmann is my all time fav and she does it so well I've always wanted to give it a try. Though I've come close with my Men in Blue series, which does feature some ex-military guys, Burke Levine is my first veteran hero. He won't be the last! Plus, a little known fact about me... I used to work for the Department of Defense. Okay, so I worked in their finance agency but still, I was constantly surrounded by veterans who had plenty of stories to tell. I've always respected them and the sacrifices they made. This was made even clearer to me when I traveled to France a few years ago. Specifically, I went to Caen and Normandy to the D-day beaches. I will never forget standing in the Amercian Cemetery there and turning around in a full circle. There were white crosses as far as I could see in every direction. More than anything I'd read in text books or seen in movies, that really hit home on the magnitude of that day and World War II in general. I stood on the beaches and imagined what it was like that day, saw the "rolling hills" of the area which are really bomb craters covered in grass, and it became real to me in a way it never had before. It definitely sparked my imagination and a desire to capture those qualities in my heroes.
