Prejudice and discrimination still exist in our world, and it absolutely breaks my heart. I kept the thread on this light because it’s not the focus, but I did want to pull back the veil, so to speak, on this topic. I had others “warn” me that I would get “attacked” for being a “white girl writing about a black man.” Some even suggested I write about a different character for the last book, but to me, if I had done that, it would be discrimination. Griffin is the backbone of Nightshade. He needed his story told, and I have no regrets.
A: Admittedly, it’s sad to realize this is the final book in the series. Readers have responded very positively, and I think the original mission of the Discarded Heroes—to open dialogue about our troops, about what they do/see/experience and how that affects them, their lives, and their families—has succeeded. It is my hope that readers will be more aware, and ultimately, more supportive of our military heroes, both active duty and veteran.
