Hero Interview from The Bodine Family Christmas by Marta Perry


Interview with the hero from The Bodine Family Christmas by Marta Perry in Mistletoe Prayers:

1. Travis McCall, tell me the most interesting thing about you. The only important thing about me is that I’m a helicopter pilot in the US Coast Guard. That’s not just my career—it’s my life.

2. What do you do for fun? When I was stationed in Alaska, I liked hiking, going hunting, hanging with my buddies. Now that I’ve been sent to Coast Guard Base Charleston, I’m not sure what I’m going to do. This isn’t my kind of place at all.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it? Getting involved with a woman again. I had that once. Trusting her was the hardest thing I’d ever done, after growing up the way I did. And she let me down—traded me in for another guy while I was in the hospital after a crash. I won’t let that happen again.

4. What are you afraid of most in life? Letting down somebody who’s counting on me for a rescue. Like we say—you have to go out, but you don’t have to come back.

5. What do you want out of life? To go on doing the thing I was born to do. For awhile, after the crash, I thought it was all over. Now I’m making a new start in a new place.

6. What is the most important thing to you? Living up to the Coast Guard tradition.

7. Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book? Just training manuals, that’s all.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I’d like to be as easy and laid back as some people I know, but that’s not me.

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet? Nope. Except that now that I’ve gotten involved with Annabel Bodine and her animal rescue, I’ve kind of gotten attached to a certain stubborn donkey.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why? I go back and change my childhood...maybe give myself a set of normal parents like Annabel has. She doesn’t know how lucky she is. But you can’t change the past, can you?
