September 2018: Favorite Heroine
~ Mariposa Cruz ~

CTR asked:
QUESTION: Of your published titles to date, which heroine is your favorite and why?

Mariposa Cruz said:
My long-legged, heroine with the auburn tresses, from “Wedding Tango” is my favorite character. Moira Williams had to grow-up fast when her husband, Clint, left her with a small daughter and a huge stack of bills. She is strong and practical-minded from raising her daughter alone. I admire her predisposition to bluntness because it is reminiscent of my maternal grandmother who was a strong woman in her own right.

Moira’s profession as a paralegal was inspired by my close friend and former colleague’s work with the poor. Working as a paralegal for a non-profit legal aid group, Moira is well-aware of how easily people can get ensnared in a system they don’t understand. Yet she is superstitious enough to wonder if hearing Styx’s “”Nothing Ever Goes as Planned”” on the radio is an omen of a potential bad day.
