Second Chance Interview


How exciting to have Sophie Powell the heroine from Second Chance by Leann Harris Ranch a January 2011 release from Love Inspired Romance .

1. Sophie, tell me the most interesting thing about you.
I was an Army medic and served in Iraq. When I can home, I planned to go back to school to be a doctor, but after seeing the benefits of equine therapy on some of the wounded soldiers I treated, I knew that was the call on my life.

2. What do you do for fun?
I take my horse out and ride. There is nothing I love more than riding. Zach (the hero and most stubborn male in New Mexico) goes with me and we spend the day on horseback. I knew him when my college roommate took me home with her one weekend and I met him. I had a terrible crush on him.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it?
Cooking. I’d rather clean out stalls than cook. What I need a is wife.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?
Confronting my parents. When I was a teen, my older brother died in an accident. I overheard a conversation between my parents blaming me for his death. I carried that wound with me for many years. Eventually, I confronted my parents with what I heard, and learned what my parents really said.

5. What do you want out of life?
To own my own an equine therapy ranch, helping others overcome their physical weaknesses by riding and caring for horses. It is an incredible blessing and gives me peace.

6. What is the most important thing to you?
To laugh and celebrate life. For so long my life was filled with sadness and guilt, but I have found joy with my parents, my new husband, Zach, and his wonderful, noisy family.

7. Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book?
I love who-done-it books. Also I read a lot of journals and books on equine therapy.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
I would like to be able to sing. I can’t carry a tune worth spit. I enjoy singing and the horses don’t complain, but if there’s someone else in the stables, they do.

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?
My horses are my babies particularly one gelding named Prince Charming. Charmin’ is a character. I spent more time talking to him about Zach. He really is a wonderful listener. Gives good advice, too.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why? How far back?
If we are talking about centuries, I would love to go back to medieval England to see the wonderful steeds the knights rode. They had to be incredible animals to carry all that weight. I also would’ve loved to have seen how Comanche worked with their mounts here in New Mexico and Texas.

Thank you Leann for sharing Sophie with us.

  3. Divorce is the end of a happy life. Divorce is certainly an end, but it can also be a beginning to a new and fulfilling life being a singledad or mom. It is possible to build a better life post-divorce than the one you had before. Figure out what it is that you want out of life, and what you need to do to get there. For advice and help Visit:
