Congratulations to "Colleen C.", the winner in Angi's giveaway. Thank you to all who participated.
Hello again and thanks for joining me. Most of the heroes in romantic suspense have training and work for or in law enforcement or special forces. But sometimes the average guy has to face stepping into a hero's role. Of course, the real heroes never think of themselves that way. I've written about a couple of those guys recently and it was really neat to tell their story. I have a theme song for them…
I recently watched THE PACIFIER... I've always been a Vin Diesel fan. But I actually like his character growth and the super-ordinary way he dealt with the kids and their problems. HEY, I know things don't work that way in real life…but I do write fiction. But it reminded me how extraordinary some real folks are. At the end of the movie, there's a SMASH MOUTH song that I listen to all the time now: EVERYDAY SUPERHERO. Hadn't heard it? You should take a listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lSLtAmYH_n4

Thinking about dads… A fan posted this on my page yesterday: "The best kind of hero is the one who takes time to be a good dad." ~Lenore E. I 'googled' Dad of the Year and found some heartbreaking stories, but also something that made me laugh out loud: http://bzfd.it/1p7LqSb

Thinking about grads… Someone in my life forwarded me the 2014 UT at Austin Commencement speech by Naval Admiral William McRaven who served as a Navy SEAL. There were many thing the Admiral could have told those graduates, and he took on a big subject: Changing the world. And it all starts with making your bed. You'll love it, take a listen: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxBQLFLei70
