For me, it’s my wife. She’ll hate me for writing about her like this, but she deserves a huge, huge shout out.
So, why’s my wife my inspiration?
She paid me good money to write about her (I’m joking!). In all honesty, she’s been putting up with me for a good 8 years now. We’ve been through a lot of challenges with what life has thrown at us over the years, but we’ve always stayed strong and supported each other through whatever issue there was.
On top of this, she’s pregnant and I am absolutely amazed with how she’s managing with the experience. It’s quite a surreal moment for me, so I can’t imagine how it’s making her feel.
By going through the journey of pregnancy it just shows how amazing and strong the female body is. It’s extraordinary!
I imagine I’d be a real wimp if I was the one carrying our baby!
In the spirit of inspiring women…
My novel Familiar was driven by a powerful, strong and confident woman in the lead character, Arabella. She’s a badass and has to deal with ‘friends’ constantly reaching out to her. I absolutely loved writing as Arabella, she was amazing! The book wouldn’t be as good if she wasn’t the lead.
If you’re looking for a new book to read and inspiring female protagonists are your bag, then I highly recommend Familiar to you.
