C L Savage is the author of several girl adventure novels: the Mermaid Adventures series and the forthcoming For the Empire series.
It's long been a pet peeve of his, that girl's lived in the shadows of some "guy" hero that would fix her problems for her. Girls have adventures all the time. Girls should have problems, have the table stacked against them and overcome on their own efforts. If a guy is there, they aren't the solve for each and every problem.
A second pet peeve, is the girl falling in love "easy." There should be a battle for her heart. A crush, a kiss isn't the same as giving her heart away for all time to another. Love isn't that simple.
