Suzanne Brockmann Courts Equality

Courting equality with romance, thrills, and suspense

Reading the dedication to Suzanne Brockmann’s novel Hot Target blew me away. NY Times best-selling romance author Brockmann came out as the mother of a gay son, explained his coming out, lauded PFLAG (Parents Family and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), and became an instant role model of a straight ally for millions of readers of the romance-thriller-suspense genre. Not exactly the crowd one would routinely target to win over to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality movement. But I’m getting ahead of myself. Read the whole article.

    Pat,

    I very much enjoyed your article on Bay Windows… I am not one to read
    much other than technical readings…. but, I must say, your article has
    caused me to long for reading — dare I admit — novels!!! Well, not just
    any novels… but, specifically, Hot Target… LOL

    I passed your article to my friend Kathy… and she told me the same thing!
    She hasn’t read romance novels in ages… but, based on your thoughtful
    expression, she just may run out and buy it!

    Thank you for causing us — well, me — to re-consider my library!

    Love,
    Chris
