Interview with the heroine from Highland Sanctuary by Jennifer Hudson Taylor:

Serena Boyd, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I consider the whole Village of Outcasts as my family. I grew up surrounded by the villagers, cut off from the rest of the world, and I could be myself around them. I love them for that. My dedication to them may interest outsiders because each villager has something strange about them that caused them to be outcasts, but I love them for the very things that others dislike. 

What do you do for fun?

I enjoy country dances and lively music.

What do you put off doing because you dread it?

My least favorite chore is doing laundry at the loch. Gunna usually handles it, but she’s elderly and became too ill. I began washing our clothes in the wee morning hours before I leave for work at Braigh Castle. It’s verra cold during that hour.

What are you afraid of most in life?

I fear that someone outside the village will discover my fits and my life could be in danger.

What do you want out of life?

I’m in love with Gavin MacKenzie. I want to marry him and spend the rest of my life with him and raise a family together, but since he’s the chieftain heir I doubt his family would ever welcome a low-class village lass, especially someone with fits like mine. 

What is the most important thing to you?

Pleasing my mother and taking care of her and Gunna. It isn’t until later that I learn I should be more concerned with pleasing God.

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

The Canterbury Tales—I exchange books with my friend, Birkita.

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

I would love to be a normal lass without fits.

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

Phelan is the village white wolf. He actually belongs to Quinn, but he takes care of all the villagers. He often walks me to the castle in the mornings when I go to work. He’s the village protector and he warns us of danger.

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

Well, I live in 1477 Scotland. I think it would be neat to go back to the late 14th century when Robert the Bruce won our freedom from the English.
