Thirty-two years and he's still my prototype.
Like all writers I put people I know into my characters and the person I know best and love the most is my husband. So it only makes sense that I put a bit of him into all my heroes making them the loves of my life while I'm writing their stories.
The traits I've put in my characters that are my husband's are:
steward of the land
Marshal in Petticoats - Gil- honest, confident, loyal
Outlaw in Petticoats- Zeke - playful, mischievous, confident, loyal
Miner in Petticoats - Ethan -hard working, honest, loyal
Doctor in Petticoats - Clay- playful, honest, loyal
Gambling on an Angel - Bas - social, confident, loyal
Perfectly Good Nanny - Brock - steward of the land,hard working, honest, loyal
Bridled Heart - Holt - playful, honest, loyal
Spirit of the Mountain - Himiin - steward of the land, honest, confident, loyal
Spirit of the Lake - Wewukiye - playful, social, confident, loyal
What traits of your husband or significant other are hero traits?
