I have the world's greatest Dad. No - I'm seriously not being biased. He is amazing. I feel very blessed and lucky to have grown up with him. He has taught me so much and loved me unconditionally every step of the way. I couldn't have asked for a better person to raise me. Both my parents are awesome, but I have to admit, I've been a Daddy's girl.
So writing a father figure who is awesome was quite easy for me. I had so many good examples to go by. Gabe Hunter from the Time Spirit Trilogy is my favourite father figure I've ever read or written. He's not exactly like my dad, but there are many similarities. He became my favourite character of the trilogy pretty quickly and he is everything Gemma needs to face the battles she encounters.
So - to all you awesome fathers out there. Thank you for taking the time to love us, protect us and care for us. There will never be enough words to truly share our appreciation.
