I need help.
No, no, not THAT kind of help, although there are some who would nod wisely and GRIN.
No, we need to NAME THAT TROOPER!
His last name is Hendrickson. He's a total hottie... Of course! But Trooper Hendrickson has a chip on his shoulder...
A gut full of guilt.
His first name cannot begin with "M" or "J" or my virtual assistant will KILL ME. And that would be sad. Right?
Other heroes in my Allegany County books are Trent, Jeff, Danny, Matt, Cameron, Brett.... In the North Country we have Brooks, Craig and Marc.... So I can't use any of those.
Let me describe this rugged, cool guy with a chip on his shoulder: He survived the upstate NY ice storm of '91... his handicapped sister didn't. His parents' marriage eventually broke up. He's a loner who lived downstate as a trooper, avoiding the crazy upstate weather and memories. Just reassigned the previous week, he has no idea that being trapped in a hospital-turned-into-shelter during a mammoth ice storm with Katie Bascomb will be his turning point. God's saving grace. A new day...
Because right now he's not all that impressed, LOL! And I'd kind of like a 'surname' first name if we can come up with one that fits. Because I was going to have it be his mother's maiden name. Whaddya think?????
Help me name this protector. This guardian. This hardened soul. And then we'll see if we can't give him something to smile about in the face of wrack and ruin.
