Interview with the heroine from Dead Wrong by Susan Sleeman:

1. Kat (Katherine) Justice, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I guess the most interesting thing about me is that I belong to a family of five siblings and we’re all adopted. We’ve each had some major disappointments and losses in life, but then Patricia and Robert Justice came into our lives and like a dream come true they loved us, provided for us, and made us part of a big happy family. Sadly, they were murdered a few years ago. All the siblings worked in some branch of law enforcement to honor our adoptive dad, and when they were killed, we quit our jobs to find the killer. And you know what? We never went back to our jobs, but formed the Justice Agency so we could help others in need. It’s been a great few years working together. Even if the brothers are a little bossy.

2.  What do you do for fun?

I love to spend time with my family playing games, but I also like to bake. I use my mom’s recipes and that makes me feel connected to her, you know?

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

Oh, gosh, I suppose you only want one thing here. I’m bad about cleaning house. It’s so tedious and boring. I’d rather be hunting down a killer or catching a criminal than scrubbing a toilet.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?

Honestly, though I am working through it, I still fear losing someone that I love. My birth father abused then killed my mother, and I told you about my adoptive parents. So it’s hard not to worry about it, but I recently learned how to turn that worry over to God. Some days I do fine, but the man I love is a police detective so there are times when worry still sets in.

5.  What do you want out of life?

A family. A loving, wonderful family. Besides my siblings, I want children. Three of them I think. Maybe more. I can just see Christmas mornings with all my siblings and their children, once they all get married that is, and my kids gathering together. 

6.  What is the most important thing to you?

You probably can tell from my other answers that family is the most important thing to me. When you lose those who are special to you, you learn to appreciate and cherish the people you still have in your life.

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

I’m a former police officer so give me a cop story where there is realism and I’m on board. Don’t give me a book where the author hasn’t researched police procedure, though. If you do, I’m apt to throw the book across the room.

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

Well, I’d like to be taller, but that will never happen. So I’d say to stop worrying. Like I said I’m getting better at not worrying so much, but when something bad crops up, I’d like my first and only response to be to turn to God and let Him take care of it all. I’m trying.

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

No, I don’t have a pet. My brother Ethan’s allergic to almost all furry creatures so out of respect for him we’ve all decided not have pets in our homes. This could change when I children of my own, but we’ll have to see.

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

You know, I think I’d go back to when my birth mother was still alive. I’d love to be able to put my arms around her one more time, tell her how much I love her and say goodbye.
