MOVING TARGET INTERVIEW
Today we're welcoming Sailor, the heroine of Moving Target, an August 2009 release, by Stephanie Newton.
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. I own a coffee shop. Murder wasn’t even on my radar until my business partner—my friend—was killed. If that wasn’t crazy enough…the cops thought I might have been the target.
2. So, during the book you met Gabe. Tell us a bit about him. What was your first impression? When did you know it was love? Gabe was my childhood sweetheart, but after the traumatic event that tore us apart, I really never expected to see him again. I knew it was love when he showed me a surprise that made me believe that God could rebuild our life together making us better and stronger for what we had been through.
3. What strengths/skills do you have? What is your greatest weakness? My greatest strength is compassion. My greatest weakness is fear.
4. What scares you? What scares me the most is the fear of being hurt and I don’t mean just getting my feelings hurt, I mean the deep, brutal kind of hurt that you aren’t sure you’ll survive.
5. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I’m not sure I’d change anything. Obviously, I have faults and weaknesses that I’m working on, but sometimes I think those are the things that give us compassion for other people who may be in similar situations.
6. Where are you in your faith at the start of your story?
I’ve been a believer for a long time, but I didn’t necessarily believe all of God’s promises were meant for me.
7. Where are you in your faith at the end of the story?
I know God wants me to live life to its fullest. There’s more potential for hurt that way, sure, but there’s also more potential for joy.
8. You've got a scripture at the beginning of the story. Tell us why this scripture is significant. See the above answer. God is a loving God and He wants his best for us.
9. If you could be a dessert what would you be and why?
It’s not really a dessert, but my specialty at the coffee shop are the fresh-baked homemade scones. Drop by for one anytime!
Yum! The scones sound good and so does this story. Thank you Stephanie for sharing Sailor with us. What a cool name!
