WomenGamers.Com Chief Editor takes a detour into the realm of historical romance novels written by the voice of Starcraft’s Sarah Kerrigan, Glynnis Talken.
Talken: I seriously hope the damsel in distress is gone for good. That doesn?t mean she can?t lean on a man now and then. It just means that sometimes it?s the hero who?s doing the leaning, and she?s strong enough to be there for him. I think we?re attracted to iconic heroines who wield swords and kick butt, because it?s an extreme version of what we?d like to do in our own lives. One of my goals is to inspire women to find their inner strength, whether it?s fending off muggers, standing up to a boss, or hanging up on telemarketers.
