Simpering misses and damsels in distress seem to be out of fashion these days. Rarely do I pick up a book and read about a heroine who is sickly, pale, and teary-eyed all the time. Instead, we have strong female leads—some magical mixture of Lara Croft, Mother Teresa, and Maya Angelou—who populate our fiction.
While I’m all for strengthening our reader’s views of females, is there such a thing as overdoing it? Can you have a heroine is who is too dominant?
Q4U: Have you ever thought about the dominance/submission factor when writing your novels?
