  1. 1) Arrow- because the guy who plays him on TV is really hot! Okay, wait I have more solid reasons. …Don’t I? Oh, yes. He’s more human than other superheroes. He makes mistakes and has regrets and started out as a less than sterling individual.
    2) I would like the super power to get backstage at rock concerts without getting thrown out. Or super hearing. One of the two.
    3) My dad and my husband, who is a lot like my dad. Dad was one of those rare individuals who was both a numbers/logic guy and a words/emotion guy. He was a great storyteller, was funny, very intelligent, had a great deal of “common” sense as well, loving, positive, truly interested in other people, even strangers. He was always the best at encouraging me, in my corner.
    4) Climbed over a twenty foot wall in the rain, in my rock n roll boots, to get backstage (see answer two). This was also one of the stupidest things I’ve ever done. Or maybe it was when I jumped in the pool with my clothes on when one of my kids fell in the water at swim lessons and the teacher was on the other side of the pool. Then again, I could have just scooped him up from the side…so let’s just say stupidity and courage go hand in hand for me.

  2. 1. Okay, so Storm & Catwoman, both as played by Halle Berry. The reasons are obvious! Powerful, forces of nature. I like that idea.
    2. I would like to be able to transport myself wherever I wanted to be instantly. Blink, I’m in Italy. Blink, I’m in Rio. No passports, no customs, no hotel fees. Just blink and you’re back home! Endless travel with none of the hassel!
    3. My mother was my hero. She was the kindest, bravest person I have ever met, and she died far too young. She was 42, and I was 16.
    4. After standing next to his ICU bed while he was in a coma for 6 days, watching the heart monitors and the listening to the lung machine, and looking at the brain scan readouts, I held my husband’s hand and whispered in his ear that it was okay for him to let go, that I would be okay…and I finally signed the papers allowing them to take him off life support. (And admitting it in public just now for the first time.)

  3. The Avengers Natalia (Black Widow) is a real kick-butt heroine. For a super power, I’d like to be able to heal with a touch. My Hubs is my real life hero. Most courageous thing I ever did was walk home by myself down 2 dark country roads from a party. I think I was 11 or 12. Scary.

  4. I think all the early female writers are my heroes because they fought against the stereotype that women’s literature is only fluff and nonsense. One super-power I have craved since becoming a full-time working mother/writer is to make more hours in the day available for my activities. Real life hero? Jane Austen? Charlotte Bronte? George Elliott? It took mega-courage for me to leave a comfortable teaching position where I was team leader and dept. chair to accept a teaching position in an almost new school where I would be teaching all different grades. Thanks for the nice post.

  5. My favourite super heroes are female writers like Daphne Du Maurier, Phyllis Whitney, Victoria Holt, Dorothy Sayer, The Bronte Sisters, Agatha Christie, Mary Stewart, Catherine Marshall and some more women writers that I will not list here. 2. If I could have any super power, I would want to have the power to touch the hearts of people when they read my books. 3. To be quite honest, I have more than one real life hero. Two of them are Lydia Prince and Catherine Marshall. 4. Again I have done many courageous things, I believe, but the most courageous thing I have done is deciding to settle in a European country on the European Continent where I had to learn the language. That has changed my life forever and let me know that I can move anywhere as long as I am willing to learn the language of that country. The culture sits within their language.
    Shalom aleichem,
