Interview with the hero from The Colonel’s Daughter by Debby Giusti:

1.  Jamison Steele, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

Thanks for inviting me on your blog today, Margaret.  As you may know, I’m a Special Agent with the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Division. We handle felony crimes against military personnel or crimes that occur on military posts.  Currently I’m stationed at Fort Rickman, GA.

2.  What do you do for fun?

I was a by-the-book type of guy focused entirely on my job.  “Fun” consisted of a long workout at the gym or a ten-mile run. When Michele Logan came into my life, I started to reevaluate my priorities.  My work is still important, but in my off time, I enjoy life, especially with Michele at my side.

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

I dreaded looking back at the past and thought I could ignore what had happened.  Eventually, I had to face the truth about the past.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?

For so long, I worried that I might end up like my dad.  I worked hard to overcome his negative influence on my life. After what happened at Fort Rickman, I realized I was my own man.

 5.  What do you want out of life?

I want to spend the rest of my life with Michele.  Without her, life wouldn’t be worth living.

6.  What is the most important thing to you?

God comes first, then Michele.  Country, duty, honor are also at the top of the list.

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

Since I’m a military guy, I love biographies of famous military men or books about important military campaigns in the past.  World War I and II are favorite subjects. Like most army guys, I’m a history buff and believe it’s important to know about the mistakes made in the past to ensure we never make them again.

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

Michele says I need to lighten up a bit.  I’m probably too serious.

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

No pets yet.  Michele and I will move into quarters on post after our wedding.  Maybe we’ll get a dog then.

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

I’d like to be a soldier in General George S. Patton’s Third Army during the Battle of the Bulge to study his leadership and military strategies.
