Hometown Sweetheart Interview

How exciting to have _Simon Adams the hero from Hometown Sweetheart by Lenora Worth, an April release from Love Inspired Romance .

1. Simon, tell me the most interesting thing about you. I’m not that interesting. I don’t want to draw attention to myself. I like to work. I’m a boot-maker. I like solitude.

2. What do you do for fun? Ah, nothing. I listen to my country music and go for long walks near the Chattahoochee River. Usually my brother’s dog, Shiloh, is with me.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it? Going out in public. I like my privacy. My clients come to my workshop to have their boots hand made. That’s about as public as I get.

4. What are you afraid of most in life? Giving my heart to someone again.

5. What do you want out of life? Mostly, to be left alone.

6. What is the most important thing to you? My work. I love what I do. I like creating a perfect pair of hand-crafted cowboy boots. It’s a lost art.

7. Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book? I read a lot since I’m alone most of the time. I like westerns, mysteries and anything to do with my craft.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I need to reach out to my family more. They mean well, always checking on me and trying to set me up with women. But … I’m still not over my wife. She died a few years ago. Cancer.

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet? I have a pet, but Shiloh is my brother’s dog. Somehow, I got stuck with the big mutt because he’s like a bull in a China shop, so he can’t go to town and stay at the General Store anymore. I think my brother Rick leaves that dog with me just so I won’t be alone.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why? The wild west, of course. I’d probably get in trouble and wind up in jail, but that sure would be fun. And … it would be a good place to hide away.

  1. Hi Lenora:

    I don’t know about this one.

    It sounds like Simon has a pretty good life to me. All that time to think and listen to books on tape. Beautiful location. No boss. No commute. Time to be one with nature. Unlimited opportunities to express himself through his craft. Never nagged.

    There are probably millions of men who would take that deal. I half hope no one comes along and drags this poor contented guy back into the rat race. : )
