Strong women are found in every one of my books. I do know exactly what started me on that path in writing, for I am not a feminist. I like the big, strong man to act as protector, and I value traditional gender roles. However, I appreciate a man who appreciates a strong woman, and I especially like when two strong personalities find balance with each other. Alaina is the first of three strong women in this series, and while all end up rescued (one more than others), they can each hold their own.

Courage is a common trait in strong women, at least those I've known. Courage does not mean they are afraid, rather they keep moving forward despite their fear.

How do you move forward when you are afraid? What are some examples of courageous women from other books you've read?
