A while back as I was writing Hatshepsut, I wondered what handful of words would best describe her. The list?
Temperamental, dutiful, loyal, passionate.
Oh. My. God.
Hatshepsut is a Klingon! (Yes, I am a nerd. Like you didn't know that already.) She's Worf with a little Picard thrown in for some extra elitism. (Yes, I only watch The Next Generation. I'm a picky Trekky.)
My latest protagonist? She's Q. *cue evil laugh* With a little Riker thrown in for that playboy edge.
Can you tell I'm having fun writing her?
