Writing Tip of the Day-Heroes

Leadership is an important quality in a hero. He should be a man others look up to and turn to for guidance during troubled times.

I was asked a simple question today. It had to do with successful author names or pen names. The first name that popped into my head - was Jennifer. Which of course, prompted much discussion about why I chose this name in particular and it came down to you and one of your books: Tender Betrayal. Did you have an ad on T.V for this? I think you may have but, it was the book that turned out to be THE BOOK for me. You know the one, that story you fall in love with - the one that gets you hooked on romance for life? And here I am thinking about that story and getting inspired all over again and then I pull up your website and come to this blog and find the most AMAZING tips - at I time when I SO need them. Thank you again, for being there for me...who says there’s no such thing as fate. :)

What a lovely story, Murphy; many thanks for posting it. Yes, my previous publisher did TV ads for my books during the first big wave of romance novels, when they were new on the scene. It's good to hear they had an effect. And as you are choosing Jennifer as a name now, I chose it back then, as well, because it had a soft sound that whispered "romance" to me. Blake, on the other hand, was my grandmother's maiden name. This turned out to be a good choice, too, since it put my books at eye level (in alpha order) on the book racks. :-) Anyway, I'm touched and delighted to be a part of your "fate" and source of inspiration for both reading and penning romance. The best of luck with your writing!
