Am I a Geek?
In ENDLESS NIGHT the hero, Jake Grogran, is an electrical engineer. An electrical engineer. Sheesh! As Megan Summers says to him, "What do you do, plug in light bulbs?"
Why is Jake not a cop, a fireman...heck, why is he not an Air Force pilot? No. He's an electrical engineer. And I love him. Maybe it's just the fact that a normal guy in a mundane occupation can be sexy. He can be a hero.
Jake can make a house alarm out of a hairdryer and a kitchen timer. And engineer geek or not, he can protect Megan and make her feel like the most cherished person in the universe.
That's a hero.
