So my mom calls me yesterday and is all like, Did you see that a SEAL team rescued that captain?
I tell her that I’ve been following all of this forever at this point and say yes.
Then she’s like, you know, I was washing dishes when I heard it and I stopped to watch the story. And then I turned back to washing the dishes and I thought, you know, this is something Stephanie should write about. She should write about the SEALs.
(This is the point where I tell my new readers that my mom has never read any of my books.)
She continues, And then I thought, wait, I think she does write about Navy SEALs. But I don’t think you have a plot like this. You should write this exact plot. It would be so timely. And all the work is already done for you…
