I love reluctant heroine/hero stories. There’s something about an ordinary person thrust into extraordinary circumstances that appeals to me. If the character is grumbly about playing the part of the hero, I award bonus points. The thing is, there’s something heroic inside them. They just don’t know it yet. They are generally good people, the [...]
