The Military Hero (part 3) - Getting Ready for the RT Booklovers Convention

The third military workshop at the RT Booklovers Convention (link) is hosted by Lindsay McKenna - Navy veteran turned romance author:

Creating Memorable Military Heroes and Heroines

Want to write believable military characters? Not many writers have been in the military, but Lindsay McKenna has. She created the military romance in 1983 and has the longest-running military romance saga in publishing history: Morgan's Mercenaries. Discover and dig into the psyche of the man and woman who joins the military, how their emotions rule them, how they view the world, what fuels them and makes them who they are. We'll cover the psychology of the military hero from the inside out, so you can make them unforgettable, sympathetic — and hot.
