What does Veteran’s day have to do with Chimeras?

Happy Veterans’ Day!

I want to offer my thanks to those who served and to those who lost family in the service of the United States.

My current WIP, draft titled THE LION’S SHARE, stars Connor, a Chimera brother, who along with his twin Tyler is a US Army Ranger.

At the moment the book begins in Afghanistan (that may change as first chapters often do) but I did a lot of research about Forward Operating Bases and various aspects of the scene.

I named a character in the scene after a man who, instead of jumping off his humvee as they are instructed when a grenade landed on top, smothered the deadly explosive device with his own body in an attempt to save his friends.

There are far too many of these heroic stories to be found and I wish I could name a character after them all.

In my version, he lives.

Thanks again Veterans!
