Interview with the hero of Enduring Justice:

1. FBI Agent Michael Parker, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I’m a military brat and have lived all over the world. I dreamed about being and CIA spook, but there’s a special lady in Alexandria who’s worth settling down for and staying right where I am.

2. What do you do for fun?

I love revving my Mustang and blasting alternative rock, now more alternative Christian rock. I’ve had my fill of the fast life and thanks to my mentor, Clint Rollins, I’m a believer who doesn’t have to numb out anymore. I now have real friends and Hanna to enjoy time with and take our dog, Champ, out for a run. We love hiking and spending time at the Rollins’s pool.

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

Hands down, that would be paperwork. My desk is a massive paper magnet and someplace I avoid if at all possible.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

For most of my life, I’ve been afraid of never receiving my father’s approval.

5. What do you want out of life?

I want to be a catcher in the rye and save as many kids as I can. I also want to rebuild the relationship with my dad, no matter how difficult that road might be.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

That would be things for me. My relationship with Jesus, Hanna, and our dog, Champ, and making the world safer for kids and their families.

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

I love reading and try to squeeze it in any time I can. My favorite books are suspense and military thrillers. I especially enjoy it when authors get the details right and am happy to help them out any way I can, time permitting, of course.

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

My past. It’s a lie to think you can live hard and escape with no consequences. But I’m glad God forgives and loves me and makes something new out of me.

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

Hanna bought me this amazing dog, Champ. He’s a yellow Lab and we love him. Champ is a guard dog, a running pal, and someone who makes me glad to come home at the end of a long day.

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

If I could take what I know now with me, I’d go back to right before all my cases started and stop people from ever hurting a child. Why? Children are precious and worth protecting.
