Interview with a Character

The current book I’m working on is tentatively titled Cupid’s Quest. It is filled with a cast of characters who should make you laugh, make you cry and make you fall in love all over again. The book will be available in early 2015. The heroine in this book is Gracie. Learn a little more about her by reading the mock interview below.

What do you do for a living, Gracie?

I run a retirement home that my parents started. The residents are like my family. I grew up in this place and I can’t imagine doing anything else. They have my heart.

What is your favorite color?

I love the color blue.

What is your saddest moment?

Losing both of my parents. There is nothing harder than being alone in the world. Even though I have the residents as companions, they aren’t my parents and I miss belonging somewhere in the world.

What is your happiest moment?

Mrs. Kelly is a lot of fun. She is a senior citizen but in her mind she is perpetually 17. Recently, I took her to the doctor and ran into an old high school crush. She flirted shamelessly with him. It was pretty funny and he handled it better than most men do.

What is your biggest challenge?

Saving the nursing home. We’re in financial trouble. These people are the only family I have left and if the home shuts down, I don’t know where some of them will go. I don’t know where I’ll go or what I’ll do.

Talk around town is that you have a date…

Yes, with that high school crush I was talking about, Brandt. We’ll see where it goes…
