It was fascinating to research long-term injury and especially prosthetic limbs--because her hero, Alec Morrissey, is a wounded veteran and lost a leg. It's not a downer, story, though! I wanted to write a story about how we're all too obsessed with perfection in our society. Here are two imperfect people who find perfect love!(less)
