Guest Post: Carolyn Arnold- The Modern Woman

The Modern Woman

Most mothers want to see their daughters grow up, get married, and raise a family.  At least mine did, but I didn’t necessary have it all planned out that way.  Sure I wanted to fall in love and have a man who worshipped me – what girl doesn’t.  But then I grew up.

I got my heart broken a few times along the way and at one point even decided I didn’t care if I ever found a husband.  That was until I met “the one”.

He was handsome, but more importantly he made me laugh.  He listened to me when I spoke.  He was crazy about me.  So when he asked me to marry him, I said yes.

It rained on our wedding day.  They say it does when a marriage will last forever, and so far the old wives’ tale has held true.

For the first few years our mothers asked when they’d be seeing a grandchild – a question we laughed off.  You see hubby and I didn’t really want to have kids, and it’s not because we’re selfish or irresponsible, it’s just our personal choice.

Over sixteen years later, and two beagles as pets, I smile because I did things my way.  I may not have followed a preset mold of “get married and have children” but I’m happy.   My mother-in-law laughs at us when she sees the antics of our dogs.  She says, and you said you didn’t want children?

Of course this is my story, yours might be completely different.  Maybe you’re married with children, and that’s awesome, but the modern woman has independent dreams and desires regardless.  The modern woman doesn’t hide behind a man who takes the lead.  And you know what?  I find that most men like a strong woman.

This is why I wrote Madison Knight.  I wanted a modern woman in the lead who was strong, determined and intelligent, Ties_That_Bind_ Cover (1)and despite being in a career dominated by men, she would hold her own.

You say you don’t normally like a female as the lead detective?   I hope to change your mind.  You see, I’ve written a series with her as the lead, and by doing so have shown my respect for the modern woman.

If you’re a strong woman yourself, or a man who loves a woman who speaks her mind, why not give Madison Knight a try?

Which brings me to why I’m telling you this, I invite you to meet Madison Knight in Ties that Bind.

Did I mention it’s been given a 5-star ratings and the writing style compared to JD Robb?  But don’t take other people’s word for it, find out for yourself.
