Amazingly she didn't kick me to the curb for being her stalker, and we struck up a friendship. She's far too good to me, and I miss chatting with her more often.
Last year Mary started turning old blog posts into videos and asked if I minded if she used mine. She chose a blog post from years ago, that I posted regarding trying new things in the new year.
I was just about to release my first ROBOSEX book, and I had the last book in my Hart Clan trilogy about to release from Samhain Publishing (RIP). My publishing world was a very different place than it is now. But one line from this caught my attention...
"I want to be more like the strong female characters I write about."
When this video popped up in my feed for a group I was reviewing, I realized it's so damn true. I want to have the ability to go for what I want, no matter who says I can't do it. Even if that someone is me.
So being that this whole week was about my New Year's Resolutions, I figured I'd share it with you. And if you enjoy this format, check out Mary's YouTube Channel. She has a ton more of these.
