Interview with the heroine from Died in the Wool by Elizabeth Ludwig and Janelle Mowery:

1. Monah Trenary, tell me the most interesting thing about you. The most interesting thing about me is something I’ve kept a secret from everyone for years, but that secret is revealed during the course of a murder investigation. As a result, I had a lot of explaining and some apologizing to do.

2. What do you do for fun? I love to read, so working in the library isn’t just a job for me. I also enjoy practicing martial arts.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it? As much as I enjoy eating, you’d think I’d want to learn to cook, but that’s one task I’ve put off for years. I have my choice of cookbooks in the library, but I have a feeling there’s a knack for making food taste good rather than turn out tasting like the paper the recipe is printed on. I’m sure I’ll one day take the time to learn to cook, but for now, I’ll rely on friends and professionals to keep me fed.

4. What are you afraid of most in life? I fear speaking in public, but worse than that is a fear of failure. I know I can’t succeed in every aspect of my life, but if I do fail, I’d prefer it be kept private rather than become fodder for gossip.

5. What do you want out of life? I want to make a difference, to change the lives of people, and I try to do that through my work in the library by opening the world to visitors through all the books loaded with so much information.

6. What is the most important thing to you? Family and friends hold the most important place in my life. Being adopted by loving parents has shown me the strength and commitment necessary for deep and solid relationships.

7. Do you read? If so, what is your favorite type of book to read? As I stated earlier, I love to read. I’m open to all types of books but fiction, especially suspense and mystery, is my favorite.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I would like to be more confident, something like my friend Casey Alexander. I feel like I hide behind the books on the shelves in the library and read about others putting their neck on the line. It’s time I stop just reading about them and put some action to my beliefs.

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet? I don’t have a pet yet. I want to wait until I have more time to spend with it. But one day I think I’d like to have a dog that loved me and was as excited to see me as I will be him.

10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why? As much as I love the printed word, I think I’d like to go back to the days when the first printer was invented and the first books and papers were printed.
