Interview with the hero from Zero Visibility by Sharon Dunn:

1.  Nathan McCormick, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I recently inherited my parents mountain acreage which has a family cabin, Christian kids camp and ski hill on it. 

2.  What do you do for fun?

I love doing the outdoor sports I learned growing up with parents who were camp counselors like archery and snowmobiling.

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

To be honest, I have a difficult relationship with my brother. He had a gambling addiction for years that caused lots of wounds between us. He says that he has quit for sure this time, but I don’t know if I can trust him since he has recovered and relapsed so many times.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?

With our parents gone, I don’t want things between my brother and I to remain unresolved. I’m afraid that we won’t be able to work through all that has happened. He’s the only family I have left. We got to find a way to get past this. If we can’t work together, we’ll have to sell the property.

5.  What do you want out of life?

I love my life in the small town of Clampett, Idaho. I love working as an EMT. Still, it would be nice to meet someone, settle down and have a family.

6.  What is the most important thing to you?

To honor my parents even in their death. They worked hard to have a good reputation as business owners of the ski hill and running the summer camp.

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

Love adventure books. Anything by Jack London.  

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

I wish it wasn’t so hard for me to trust people.  When you have been burned a few times, it’s hard.

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

I had a great childhood and part of that was a chocolate lab named Rowdy. I might get another dog someday soon.

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

I wish I could take the maturity I have now and go back in time to be more of a support to my parents when they were having so much trouble with my older brother.
