Hero’s interview from A Silent Terror:

1. Ethan O’Hara, tell me the most interesting thing about you.
I am a detective with the local police force and I know American Sign Language so I can communicate with deaf people in my community.

2. What do you do for fun?
Work. That’s sad, isn’t it? But I realize I do it so I don’t have to think about—other things. It keeps me busy and tired enough to fall into bed and sleep some nights without the dream coming to haunt me.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it?
Going home. I don’t like to go home to my empty house so I tend to stay in the office and work.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?
Being unable to protect the people I love. It’s not that I have a hero complex or anything, but a few bad experiences have made me a little gun shy.

5. What do you want out of life?
I want peace—and the ability to forgive myself. I want to find my faith again, believe in God like I used to. I’d also like to have a family one day but until I’m able to achieve the aforementioned peace and forgiveness, I don’t see a woman being able to put up with me for very long.

6. What is the most important thing to you?
Making sure I do my job well and as of right now—making sure Marianna Santino stays alive.

7. Do you read books?
Occasionally. Mostly if I start a book, though, I fall asleep over it. You see, my dreams are haunted so I don’t sleep very soundly. If I sit down to read, well, that’s it for me. If so, what is your favorite type of book? Something I can get lost in like and action adventure thing.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
My past. It haunts me, but I’m trying to work through it.

9. Do you have a pet?
No, I don’t. I’d like one, thought, but I’m so rarely home, it wouldn’t be fair to make an animal be alone so much. I do like Marianna’s dog, Twister. He’s her service dog. Marianna’s deaf and Twister acts as her ears.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?
I’d go back to the point in time where I could save my sister’s life.
