Today I thought I would have a bit of fun and “interview” one of the main characters from my newest novel “A Wedding in the Keys”. So without further adieu, here are some interesting facts about Bailey Parker.
Me: Hi Bailey! So glad that we could take this time for a quick chat. I’ve had some readers wanting to know just a little bit more about you so I hope you don’t mind a few questions.
Bailey: Not at all!
Me: Great! First of all, we all want to know – is Chase a great kisser?
Bailey: Goodness! Getting very personal from the get go. But I’ll be more than happy to answer. Yes he most certainly is!
Me: Sorry about that but the readers begged me to ask. So the next question is how are you enjoying being a wedding planner in the Florida Keys?
Bailey: It’s wonderful! I get to meet all sorts of people, from those that live here on the islands to others who fly in from practically all over the world. Just the other day we had a couple with their friends fly in from England just to say their wedding vows on a beach here in Islamorada. They said it was a tad bit warmer here and a little more sunshine.
Me: Do you plan to stay in the Keys now?
Bailey: I think the readers should know the answer to that question if they read the book, correct?
Me: Umm, you’re absolutely right. Okay so next question. What do you believe are your stronger attributes? What are your strengths?
Bailey: Wow! Let me think. I would have to say that one of my strengths is that I’m resilient. I’ve been through A LOT the last four years, mentally and physically, and haven’t given up on life. I’ve kept going even though I’ve found myself in some complicated situations. Having amnesia has been tough but with the right people by my side, it is getting better.
Me: Would you say Chase makes it better?
Bailey: Another very personal question but yes. Chase has helped me more than I can express. But then again, your readers know how much he means to me.
Me: Okay, so let me ask you a few easy questions.
Bailey: Fire Away!
Me: What is your favorite color?
Bailey: Oh that would be coral. I like the way it looks with my red hair.
Me: Your favorite flavor of ice cream. That is if you even like it.
Bailey: Who doesn’t eat ice cream? I love it but have to be careful how much I eat. My favorite flavor is Chocolate Chip Mint, which by the way is Chase’s too. I know not to keep it in the freezer because I would eat the entire carton within a day or two. Especially after a long day at work. I save my ice cream treats for times Chase and I go out to eat.
Me: You mentioned going out to eat. What is your favorite food you like to eat out?
Bailey: Well, since we live in the Florida Keys and fresh seafood is available everywhere, my fav food is fish tacos. Next would be pizza!
Me: Okay, so we are just about out of time. One last question: What is one important goal in your life right now?
Bailey: Oh, this is easy. I want a close family where we share each other’s ups and downs. Where we support each other and spend time together creating wonderful memories. This is especially important to me as I’m creating new memories until, hopefully one day, I’ll be able to recall my past.
Me: Sorry, didn’t mean to make you cry.
Bailey: That’s okay. Just hope everyone realizes how important each one of their family members are in their lives.
Me: That’s a beautiful answer and so true! Well, thanks again for letting me ask you a few questions.
Bailey: This was fun! And you’re very welcome.
I hope this gives you a little more insight into the character of Bailey Parker from “A Wedding in the Keys”. She is a strong woman with everything she has endured but shows us that persistence and staying positive will help you overcome the hurdles you may face.
