Did you see the news last week where two women made history by being the first to graduate from the Army Rangers’ special ops school? Of the 381 men and women who started the grueling course, only 96 made it through, including the two females.
And then, not to be outdone, the Navy has announced that starting next year they might be opening up its prestigious SEALs program to women?
Well, hoo-yah! And finally!
But, really, I’ve been featuring WEALS (Women on Earth, Land, and Sea) in my Viking Navy SEAL books for the past eleven years. That includes my current EVEN VAMPIRES GET THE BLUES. Talk about being ahead of the times!
In EVEN VAMPIRES GET THE BLUES, Harek Sigurdsson, a primo warrior of a different sort (a vangel, or Viking vampire angel) is forced to accompany Camille Dumaine, a WEALS soldier on a mission to fight terrorists in Nigeria. Harek, who is the smartest of all the vangels…a regular Viking geek…doesn’t know what will be harder…fighting Boko Haram or the allure of the tempting Camille.
Harek is one of Sandra’s favorite heroes (and what’s not to like about the cover art of this book, which accurately portrays his sometimes sophisticated look, when he’s not dressed in Viking warrior attire)? Sandra is also pleased to return, in parts of the books, to her favorite city, New Orleans, where that Cajun favorite Tante Lulu also makes an appearance.
What do you think of females in the military? Or Viking vampire angels <g>?
