Interview with the heroine:

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

I’m a massage therapist! I love helping people relax.

2. What do you do for fun?

Eat my aunt’s Japanese food! Lately I haven’t had time to relax myself, because Dad had a stroke and I’m acting manager of the family day spa right now. Dad is grooming me to take over the spa when he retires, although I’m not sure it’s what I really want to do.

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

Paperwork! Yuck! I’d rather just be a massage therapist and make people happy.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

Being hemmed in and forced to do what I don’t want to do. But I love my family, too, and sometimes I have to cave to their wishes.

5. What do you want out of life?

A real date with Dr. Devon Knightley. But he doesn’t seem interested in me, so that’s just wishful thinking.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

My family. We’re really close—my two sisters Rachel and Monica, my dad, and my aunt Becca, who is Mom’s sister. She helps us remember our half-Japanese heritage and she’s been taking care of us since Mom died. I’d do anything for them.

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

Mostly massage therapy journals. Once in a while I’ll sneak some time to read my favorite author, Margaret Daley.

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

I wish I were pretty, like Monica, or smart, like Rachel. I’m a bit of a tomboy. Guys just aren’t attracted to me because of that, I guess.

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

We have a family dog, and his name is—don’t laugh—Ugga-wugga. What can I say? Rachel named him when we were kids. Poor thing is getting older, but we love him.

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

I’d actually go back only a few months—to the last Zoe International fundraiser dinner. I sat with Devon all night and we had a great time—at least, I did. But he never asked for my number or indicated he wanted to see me outside of that night. I was too unsure to say anything myself, but I’d go back to that night and take the initiative. If he said no, well then, I would at least have known I tried.
