Interview with the hero: Evan Blake (from HUSH, LITTLE BABY by  Deborah Piccurelli):

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

I’m your typical hero: Tall, dark, and handsome. Oops! Sorry. Depending on popular opinion, I’m at least one of those things, but I hope I’m two. I do have dark hair and dark eyes. The one I’m definitely not is tall. I’m a little person, otherwise known as a dwarf. If you ask my wife, Amber, I think (I hope!) she’ll say I’m handsome.

But being a little person doesn’t mean I can’t do what an average-size person does. It just means I have to use a little ingenuity to get it done.

2.  What do you do for fun?

I bowl, but I’m not as good as Amber. I like rollerblading, but haven’t done that in a while. I’m also into martial arts. Although it’s fun, you never know when you’ll need it in a life-or-death situation.

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

Hmm. I can’t say I’m much of a procrastinator. I’m more of a fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants kind of guy.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?

After what we’ve just been through, I think I’m most afraid of losing my family again.

5.  What do you want out of life?

I just want to be a good servant to the Lord, a good husband and father, and good provider for my family.

6.  What is the most important thing to you?

As I mentioned in the previous question, the Lord is most important in my life. I’ve learned the hard way that we must always put Him first. If we don’t, we can mess up royally.

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

Oh, yes, I definitely read books. In nonfiction, I read those that are about a subject that interests me. I have no one type. In fiction, I like James Patterson’s books, Harlan Coben, John Grisham, Ted Dekker, and the list goes on.

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

Ha! I’ll bet you thought I’d say I’d change my height. But, no, what I’d really like to change is my penchant to fly off the handle when something doesn’t go my way without going to the Lord in prayer and thinking things through, first.

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

No, we don’t own any pets, at this time. Now that we have our daughter, Melly, we’ll probably get some sort of a puppy sometime down the road.

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

I really don’t think I’d like to travel back in time. The farther back in time you go, the more of a stigma dwarfism carried with it. We’re finally getting to the point where there’s more awareness about us as a community, and we’re not looked upon as oddballs.
