Truth in Fiction : Military Truths in Romance Tales

People ask me where I get my ideas for stories. Often it's from the news, real life stories that read more like fiction than fiction does sometimes.

Just a few of the real life events that have inspired my fictional stories are:
I stumbled upon another interesting news item just this week, and I absolutely love it. It reminds me of the Ben Affleck movie ARGO, about a 'film crew' being used to rescue hostages. If you haven't seen it, go find it and watch it now.

This other story, THE CODE, is about an advertising executive being employed by the Columbian government to get a secret message to hostages being held, some for 14 years, in the jungle. Read the full story HERE. It's pretty amazing.

Will I use this in a story? Maybe. Maybe not. But next time you're reading, you might wonder, is any of this true? It could be!
