Hero Interview for Wife Wanted in Dry Creek by Janet Tronstad
Interview with the hero from Wife Wanted in Dry Creek by Janet Tronstad:
1. Conrad Nelson, tell me the most interesting thing about you. I was afraid you were going to ask that. The truth is I’ve led a reserved life. I don’t go sky-diving or anything like that. I always figured there was nothing wrong with being a steady kind of guy until Katrina Britton drove into my service station. She shook up my life and I didn’t know what had happened. I felt like I was sky-diving without a parachute.
2. What do you do for fun? Does it sound boring to admit I like to put engines together? Cars and farm equipment both. Piece by piece, it’s like a puzzle. Maybe we should say it that way – I have fun doing puzzles.
3. What do you put off doing because you dread it? Well, you can tell by the title of the book about me that I’ve put off looking for a wife until my uncle decided he needed to do it for me.
4. What are you afraid of most in life? Wow, that’s getting a little personal. Not that I mind. I’m trying to be more open about my feelings. It’s no secret anymore anyway. I’m terrified of losing someone I love. That’s why it was hard for me to love in the first place.
5. What do you want out of life? That’s easy. The reason I moved to Dry Creek was because I wanted a home, a place where I could walk down the street and know almost everyone walking toward me.
6. What is the most important thing to you? God. Love. Family. I know those are the usual things for people. I just hadn’t known how hard it would be to find all three.
7. Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book? I’m not too much of a reader. Mostly, I read repair manuals. Katrina is trying to get me interested in some suspense books though and I’ve picked up a few I like. In fact, Margaret,I have one of yours.
8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I’ve changed so much since meeting my Katrina that I can’t even think of making any more changes right now.
9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet? I don’t have pets, but I do have a fine collection of garden gnomes. Do they count?
10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why? I’m pretty content right where I am.
