Hero Interview for Klondike Hero by Jillian Hart

Hero interview for Klondike Hero by Jillian Hart:

1. Gage Parker, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

There is nothing interesting about me. I like living in Treasure Creek, Alaska, and I'm on the search and rescue squad when I'm not leading tours through the Alaskan wilderness. Can I go now? I don't like being interviewed.

2. What do you do for fun?

I like to fish and hike when I'm not working or rescuing people.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it?

I would rather not talk about my divorce. So don't ask me any questions about it, okay?

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

I'm not afraid of anything. But I sure hope I never fall in love again. Love is brutal on a man.

5. What do you want out of life?

To be left alone and to not have to answer these questions. Can I go now?

6. What is the most important thing to you?

My family. I moved my grandmother in to live with me because her health is frail. I have a brother, who I hope one day will turn his life around, but in the meantime I'm taking care of his baby boy, Matthew. Karenna, the nanny I've hired, irritates me but I would stand in front of her if a bear were attacking her so I guess that means she's sort of important to me.

7. Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book?

I like books about the Alaskan wilderness. It's where I grew up, and it's what I do.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?

I would want to know how to live with hope and not let the past trouble me.

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?

I haven't had a dog in a long time, but I have a feeling one might be in my future. Karenna seems to like animals.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?

To the evening I was minding my own business driving home and I spotted a sports car broken down on the side of the road. The driver was a jilted bride in a white wedding dress. If I had been smart, I would have just kept driving. But no, I had to stop and now she's wormed her way into my life and if I'm not careful she will work her way into my heart next.


  1. Margaret, I have to say reading this interview after reading your book made me laugh out loud.

    Loved this beginning to the continuity and the setting, as well as your hero and heroine of course.
