How exciting to have Charlotte Taylor the heroine from SAVED BY THE FIREMAN written by Allie Pleiter a November 2014 release from Love Inspired Romance .
1. Charlotte, tell me the most interesting thing about you.
I work as a marketing coordinator for Monarch Textile Arts—well, at least I did up until last week. Now I’m using the time “in between offers” to buy and fix up the most darling little cottage in Gordon Falls. My Mima—I lost her, too, earlier this year—left me money to do something “worthwhile and adventurous,” and she would have loved this cottage.
2. What do you do for fun?
I collect vintage china, I knit—a lot—and I’m scouring every flea market and home furnishings shop in the state to find the perfect look for my new home.
3. What do you put off doing because you dread it?
Thinking about the teeny tiny possibility that I might not find a new job quickly. I will. I have to. I can’t go through another massive bump in the road in my life right now.
4. What are you afraid of most in life?
Right now, it’s that this very charming, very attractive fireman Jesse Sykes might just be the guy for me. My dad was a cop, and I remember what that life was like. I don't want to be tied to anyone who puts his life on the line like that.
5. What is the most important thing to you?
Figuring out who I am now that most of the things that defined me are gone. My grandmother, my job, my confidence. I’m a fish out of water here, and I need to get my act together again fast.
6. Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book?
I have a stack of home decorating books and magazines taller than I am!
7. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
That low buzz of dread that won’t leave my stomach. I used to be a confident gal, and suddenly I’m a bundle of worries. I need to get the old Charlotte back.
8. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?
My friend Melba just gave me the most lovable cat, Mo. He’s been terrific company, even though I don’t think Jesse likes him very much.
9. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?
I’d go back to the Victorian era with all those gorgeous textiles and the elegant, glamorous table settings. Who could resist?
