Interview with the heroine from Rose House:

1.Lillian Diamon, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I am a chef. It’s something I always wanted to do when I was young, but when I got married and had my twins, I decided I was happy to set that dream aside and be a mom. I still cooked at our dinner parties and for special events, but mostly I was a mom. When I lost my family I was down for awhile until I started working part-time for a top chef at his restaurant in Sacramento.

2.What do you do for fun?

I don’t really get out much, but traveling is what helps me clear my head. I enjoy visiting La Rosaleda in the Sonoma Valley. It’s a charming little town and I just love the vineyards and the gardens.

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

This is going to sound silly, but I put off making friends. It’s just hard to know who to trust at times.

4.What are you afraid of most in life?

Being alone. Sometimes I worry that I will be alone when I am old.

5.What do you want out of life?

I want to meet a friend who is trustworthy. I want to be able to trust a friend. I am not looking for a man, but if I found one I could trust I would be happy. There is this one man I have grown to care about, but I don’t know yet if I can trust him.

6.What is the most important thing to you?

My children. I know it sounds odd to say that since they are already in heaven, but they are still the most important part of me. I have saved their things and their memories live on. I think of them every day.

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

I love to read. I like to read romance novels, but I also like to read a little mystery.

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

I would be brave, like my sister Geena. She is brave to a fault, to be sure. Her gutsy personality has empowered her to do terrible things, but but it is better than being afraid.

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

I don’t have a pet, but my friend Truman has a dog named Cody. I like him.

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

I would go back to the day I lost my family and I would not let my husband drive my kids to their appointment. He left them there and had other things on his mind, so that when he went back for them, he wasn’t paying attention to his driving. I would have taken them to their appointment and I would have stayed with them like any good mother would do.
