In Praise of Kick Ass Heroines: Haywire and the Believable Ass-Kicking Woman

How to create a credible heroine, in three easy steps: 1) Give her muscles. 2) Give her a combat background. 3) Give her sensible shoes. Tonight, my sweetie and I saw Haywire. I knew I’d like it, because I have a soft spot for female vigilantes, but I wasn’t aware of how deliciously insidious the film would be. On the way home, my sweetie asked how I could reconcile my feminism with loving a character that needed to ascribe to male ideals of power in order to be considered...

I’m happy to be home and furiously at work on the sequel to Lunatic Fringe.  I’m about eighty pages in and the book is looking *great* if I do say so myself.

But maybe just cause I’m a softy.  Or maybe because it’s an insane feeling to have people you love and respect love and respect your work.  Either way, it feels so good. Check out the always amazing kd diamond’s review of Lunatic Fringe. (And then check out her work here: Book Review of Allison Moon’s “Lunatic Fringe” from katie diamond on...
