The Poseidon team are hard-bodied, fiercely competitive Navy SEALs. But when a sensitive mission goes disastrously wrong, three of the team's finest will have to trust their hearts and instincts to uncover the truth…

It’s All In A Name
I'll admit it, I’m a sucker for names. Oh, they don’t have to be fancy or exotic. But they do have to click. And like naming a child, once I’ve named a character, I can’t seem to change it. So naming becomes a part of my plotting process. It can sometimes take me as long to decide on a character’s name as it can to figure out the entire storyline. And I can’t write until it’s right.
Writing my Team Poseidon series means I’m not only naming the book’s hero, but the entire SEAL team. Which has been a lot of fun. Each man is a hard-bodied, dedicated, intense hero, while they’re all different enough to be fun to write. In CALL TO HONOR, Diego Torres grew up in gangs, fighting to for colors and turf. To him, honor was everything—hence the title. I’d started his story with a different name, but it just wouldn’t click, so I had to go back to the Great Book of Baby Names, my notebook and doodles until I found the right fit. Elijah Prescott, the hero of my newest Team Poseidon story, CALL TO ENGAGE, fit his name perfectly. Old fashioned, with softer consonants but great depth and strength. His name, like the name of his story, clicked right from the start. And when the third Team Poseidon is released, you’ll have to tell me if you think the name Nic Savino fits the hero of CALL TO REDEMPTION.
Do you pay a lot of attention to the names of the characters you read? Does it ever seem like the name doesn’t quite fit?
