Interview with the hero from Wolfbane by Ronie Kendig:

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

The most interesting thing—probably that I’m *not* interesting. I’m an average guy who’s happy to lay low and quiet.

2.  What do you do for fun?

Surfing any day of the week. It’s invigorating and refreshing. And reminds me of life—you can’t control what hits you, but you gotta get back up and keep going or you’ll drown.

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

Talking about myself.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?

See number 3. You trying to get me killed? Sorry, man, that’s like asking me to show the enemy my soft underbelly.

5.  What do you want out of life?

Peace of mind, and since that seems impossible, to do what I can for others. Help them see their potential. I worked in physical therapy for a while, and there’s nothing like showing a person they have more mettle than they thought.

6.  What is the most important thing to you?

Family. Despite the mistakes I’ve made, they mean the most to me. I’m sure my brother Range would argue that, but it’s true. They’re why I’m still around.

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

I like to read history books and memoirs of men in my line of work or those who’ve been there. Helps me see that maybe there’s hope, that the things I’ve seen and done…I’m not alone.

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

The past. Nah…nah, that’s not true because the past made me who I am, but some days, I’d do anything not to have things hanging over my head, you know?

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

I’m gone too much to have a pet of my own, but Mom’s got a golden retriever named Daisy. She’s a great dog.

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

This is like a trick question, you know? If I answer, then I guess I’d be talking about me, which I promised I wouldn’t do much (see #3), so…maybe the night my father was killed. Not sure why. Probably couldn’t stop what happened, but. . . it’d be nice to have my dad back.
