Hero Interview from Christmas Target by Stephanie Newton:

Today we’re welcoming Ben Storm, the hero of “Christmas Target” in HOLIDAY HAVOC, by Stephanie Newton. Wow, you’ve just had quite an adventure.

•Tell us a little about yourself and how you came to be in the midst of such suspense.

I’m Ben Storm, a meteorologist with Weather 24, the cable weather network. And before you ask, I was actually born with that name. I can’t tell you much, but what I can tell you is that someone was very determined to kill me.

•So, during the book you met Maria. Tell us a bit about her. What was your first impression? When did you know it was love?

Maria and I met because she won a contest for a vacation…and a date. My first impression of Maria? She was dressed in cargo pants, combat boots and I couldn’t see much more than her crazy hair. But she had these really beautiful eyes. I think I first fell in love when I realized that protecting my life was more important than saving her own. She’s really unselfish, like that, but I’m not sure she even realizes it.

•What strengths/skills do you have? What is your greatest weakness?
I think I have a good head on my shoulders. My greatest weakness? You don’t really think I would tell that in an interview, do you?

•What scares you?
Not being able to finish the job. Not being able to be the man I know I can be. Not being there for the people I love.

•You’ve got a scripture at the beginning of the story. Tell us why this scripture is significant. Lamentations 3:21-22 says, “Yet I still dare to hope when I remember this: The faithful love of the Lord never ends. His mercies never cease.” I lost my wife two years ago. This verse kept me from losing my mind.
