Del Rey hosted another author Q&A over the past week with John Jackson Miller, author of A New Dawn. Thankfully, they changed up the format from a free-for-all in the comment section to a ‘submit your questions and we’ll have JJM answer them all at once’ deal. One of the responses in particular caught my attention:
Is Hera Force-sensitive or just really good at what she does?
John Jackson Miller: That’s really more of a question for the TV producers. From my point of view, I think Hera certainly is very good at what she does, and while there’s a tendency to ascribe all exceptional talent to the Force, I’m not sure links are always necessary. As readers of my earlier works may know, I enjoy like writing non-Jedi characters that excel on their own.
And we all love reading those characters, John, we all love reading them.
