Darlene Franklin’s heroine interview from her story:
Interview with the hero:

1. Fabrizio, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

You might like to know I came to this country from Potenza in Italy when I was a little boy. We brought a little bit of Italy with us; Denver has a thriving Italian community.

2. What do you do for fun?

My family, we do a lot of things together. My nonno—what you call in English Grandfather—tells a lot of stories of the old country.

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

I do not like being alone. At home, I am surrounded by my four sisters. I share a room at the Brown Palace when I spend the night. I do not go places by myself.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

My Nonno is quite a man. I will never be as brave or strong as he is.

5. What do you want out of life?

A family of my own. A way to provide for a family.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

My Lord Jesus. Without Him, I am nothing.

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

The poetry, I read. Even you Americans read Dante.

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

I would be rich, of course!

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

Me, I have no pets. My little sister Maria has a cat. She likes to pretend it’s her baby sister.

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

I want to go forward in time. The 20th century will bring exciting changes and I want to see them all. The motorcars I fix are just the beginning.
