Hero Interview for The Wedding Garden by Linda Goodnight


Hero Interview from The Wedding Garden by Linda Goodnight:

1. Sloan Hawkins, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

My job is a lot more interesting than I am. But the good citizens of Redemption, particularly the gossips and the cops, always seemed to find me fascinating. That’s why I don’t live there anymore. I’m sure they’d be disappointed to discover I didn’t turn out quite as bad as they expected.

2. What do you do for fun?

My Aunt Lydia took me in when I was a kid, so when I can, I take her on trips. Anywhere she wants to go. I get a kick out of doing things for her.

I’m pretty fond of zipping around on my Harley, too, especially if it riles someone I don’t particularly like.

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

Going back to my hometown. The memories there are all bad, except for Aunt Lydia. Well, and for Annie, too, the only other person that ever gave me hope. But that ended badly like everything else so I stay clear.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

You’re joking, right? I’m a security expert. I’m not afraid of anything on a professional level, but it scares me to death to think about losing Aunt Lydia. The woman’s a saint for putting up with my bad attitude and giving me a home when I was nothing but a troubled kid bound for nowhere.

5. What do you want out of life?

I want to find my mother. She ran off with some trucker when I was eleven. Anyway, that’s what I was told. I want to know where she went and why she didn’t take me along. She still owes me a fishing trip.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

My reputation as one of the best security experts in the world. I worked hard to build that company. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like if I’d stayed in Redemption, if I’d married Annie and had kids. But life didn’t work out that way thanks to Annie’s dad, so I’m married to my business now.

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

I like a little intrigue to keep my mind sharp. International espionage, that sort of thing.

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

I wouldn’t be the son of Redemption’s most reviled criminal. In my case, the sins of the father were visited on the son. People couldn’t forget. When they looked at me, they saw Clayton Hawkins and expected me to be like him.

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

No pets. I travel a lot.


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

It’s a toss-up between two times. I’d like to go back to that last night with my mother. I know I could have convinced her to take me along where ever she went. But I’d also like to go back to high school and the last year with Annie. That was the happiest time I can remember. Ever.
