Interview with the heroine from The Light Keeper’s Daughter by Jean Thompson Kinsey:

1.Jean Thompson Kinsey, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I began a writing career at the age of seventy-one, or at least full length novel writing, I had several articles, short stories  and creative non-fictions published over the years.

2.  What do you do for fun?

I love to travel. I try to take a cruise every two or three years.

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

I hate housework. I put off  heavy cleaning until the cobwebs threaten to take over my house.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?

I have a degenerative spinal disorder, syringomyelia. I fear my life might last longer than my body, and I might become unable to care for myself, but this has been a threat for thirty years now, and God has protected me this far. I am blessed.

5.  What do you want out of life?

I have all the important things anyone could want in life: great children, grandchildren, my home, my church and most important, my God.

6.  What is the most important thing to you?

All the things mentioned above have their place of importance, but God takes precedence.

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

I love to read books set in the Deep South, both historical and contemporary. Fireflies in December is my all-time favorite after Gone With the Wind.

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

Ha, that is a tricky one. Could I wish to be forty-years younger and forty pounds thinner? Naw, I’ve had those days. They make good memories so I’ll just hang to who I am.

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

No.pets. I love other people’s pets, but don’t want the responsibility of my own.

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

I think I prefer to stay where I am because I might lose some of the good times I’ve had and might gain more bad ones than I’d care to add to my collection.
