Today we're welcoming Felicia Trahan, the heroine of Bayou Judgment, May 2008. Wow, you've just had quite an adventure.
1. Tell us a little about yourself and how you came to be in the midst of such suspense.
Well, I never intended to be in any such situation, no. Looking back, I probably should have asked and accepted help more than I did, but I so wanted to be independent. After what I've been through, I've sure learned my lesson.
2. So, during the book you met Spencer Bertrand. Tell us a bit about him. What was your first impression? When did you know it was love?
Spence is an amazing man. He was my "boss" at the crisis hotline center, but he's a preacher as well. Spence is . . . well, he's a bit unconventional, but his faith is so strong it reaches out and touches people deep inside. I think, deep down, I knew I loved him from the moment he helped me deal with the loss of my best friend. But I sure fought that for some time, yes? LOL
3. What strengths/skills do you have? What is your greatest weakness?
My greatest weakness is tending to believe the best about everyone, even when a person is proven to not be what they seem. My strengths and skills? Hmmm. Guess that would be that I believe God is always with us, and I try to share that with everyone I meet.
4. What scares you?
Not being able to care for myself again. After spending most of my life in a wheelchair, and now having experienced the liberation and freedom from walking on my own, going back to the way I was terrifies me.
5. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
That I'd had the surgeries a LOT earlier in my life--that I'd have stood up for myself and what I wanted.
6. Where are you in your faith at the start of your story?
Oh, I've always loved Jesus and been His follower, but I just wanted to do so much on my own.
7. Where are you in your faith at the end of the story?
I hope it shows that I'm stronger in faith, relying on God for direction before jumping out on my own, yes?
8. You've got a scripture at the beginning of the story. Tell us why this scripture is significant.
This particular Scripture applies more to Spence's faith than mine. So many people today, even Christians, are so quick to judge others. But we all must trust in God, because ONLY HE knows the heart of a man.
9. If you could be a dessert what would you be and why?
Taffy--because I'm sweet, can be pulled in a lot of different directions, but when my focus is on Him, I always come back together.
Thank you so much Felicia for joining us today. I'm looking forward to reading Bayou Judgement.
Please join us next week as we have the heroine from Lenora Worth's book A Face in the Shadows telling us about her adventures.
