Start Your Engines

So there I was writing a gritty paranormal and my heroine was a mechanic and my hero was a God and then somewhere I read that most gritty heroines nowadays are mechanics.

I thought I was being original. I personally know nothing about cars so I thought that was crazy new.

Well, if it's commonplace to have mechanics and tattoo artists and firefighters and race car drivers what is it that women don't do in romance novels?

Really. Give me an idea. What is no longer women's work?

  1. I haven't seen many who work in a factory. Seriously. Blue collar heroines are common but they're usually in a position of power and not someone's bitch.

    Spork assembler by day, demon slayer by night? I'll buy it.
