“You gotta fight it out with your heart…”

I was going through my Benatar catalog looking for songs for my upcoming book under my Michelle Robbins pen name when I chanced across this video on youtube.  This song has always wrenched me–yes, ALWAYS–and it crossed my mind that this song, and the passion and hope in Benatar’s voice, is my Jenna’s world.  (Both Balance and the WIP, Edge.)

Jenna is a hard character to write because she’s been through so much ugly, which is my history and the things I live with every day, and yet she–me–still clings to that tiny thread of home.  And that hope has only one name:  LOVE.
