Heroine Interview from Missing by Lynette Eason:

1. Lacey Gibson tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I think the most interesting thing about me is that I’m a survivor. As a result of my childhood and past, I learned how to be independent the hard way.

2. What do you do for fun?

I had a baby at the young age of 18 so having fun sort of got lost along the way for me. Once I had Bethany I had a chance to have fun through her again. She’s a very talented girl when it comes to martial arts.

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

Confronting things that need it. Like reconciling with my parents—and telling my daughter’s father that he has a child. I’m really not good at that kind of thing. But then Bethany was kidnapped and that kind of pushed the issue. I needed his help finding her.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

Being rejected by those I love. I suppose this comes from Mason, Bethany’s father, pushing me away when we were in high school. He thought I was unfaithful to him and I wasn’t, but wouldn’t hear any of my protests. My parents were the same way. When they found out I was pregnant, they sent me away to an unwed mother’s home. (Yes, those still exist.)

5. What do you want out of life?

I want peace. I want reconciliation with those I love. Most of all, I want my daughter to be happy.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

Obeying God. It’s how I ended up living back with my parents even though I wasn’t sure it was such a great idea. But God knew best.

7. Do you read?

If so, what is your favorite type of book to read? I love to read when I make the time for it. Give me a good romance any day, but nothing scary. My life was scary enough for a while there. I’m not ready to relive those emotions any time soon.

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

I would be more forgiving. It takes me a while to get over things and I know this isn’t what God would have of me.

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

I don’t have any pets, but if I did, I would probably like a dog. In fact, if I ever get settled back into my own home, I would love to get a dog.

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

Definitely back to the day Mason thought he caught me in his best friend’s arms. I would try harder to make Mason listen to my side of the story and change that part. I hate that he’s lived with the thought that I cheated on him all these years.
