Heroine Interview from Legacy of Love by Victoria Burks:

Danielle McKinnon, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I am compassionate and loyal, always doing what I can to change the circumstances of those less fortunate than myself, especially children. Somehow it helps to offset the repercussions I suffered from becoming an orphan at an early age. I don’t think I have truly reconciled all those past hurts and feelings of abandonment.

What do you do for fun?

I enjoy shopping with my best friend Valerie and watching late-night movies.

What do you put off doing because you dread it?

I have difficulty ending relationships, desiring not to hurt others. Also, I know I should re-establish my relationship with God, but I have such anger against him, unrelenting in my lack of forgiveness toward him because he failed to answer my ten-year-old prayer to save my mother from death.

What are you afraid of most in life?

My greatest fear is that true love will pass me by in the circle of my life.

What do you want out of life?

Having lost my parents at an early age, I need a home, family, and roots, a legacy to call my own.

What is the most important thing to you?

I want to be the best person I can be—in my career, my relationships, and in my community.

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

I do enjoy a good novel occasionally, but don’t have a lot of time to read, my volunteer work with children taking up most of my spare time.

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

I would be less prone to let my temper flare before I take into account the situation at hand.

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

Yes, I have a white fluffy kitten named Percy. I’ve always liked cats. They are not much trouble and easy to love.

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

Mid to late 19th century would be my first and final stop. The Victorian era held such pomp and circumstance, gorgeous clothes, and the feeling that life could have meaning after all, that others mattered.
