WhispersofaNewDawnCoverInterview with the heroine from Whispers of a New Dawn by Murray Pura:

1. Becky Whetstone, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I always wanted to be like Amelia Earhart, I wanted to fly. Both my parents are fliers and they encouraged me to get into it if that’s what I really wanted. So I did and I love it.

2. What do you do for fun?

Well, I started to learn how to dance to the Big Bands music and that is a lot of fun, I look forward to an evening out on the dance floor.

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

Oh, doing a maintenance check on my airplane. It has to be done but it’s time consuming and I’d rather be flying.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

Losing the people I love.

5. What do you want out of life?

I want to be free to go wherever God asks me to go and to do whatever he asks me to do. I don’t want barriers or obstacles to anything I believe I should be doing.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

My family. My boyfriend Christian Raven. My God.

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

I like to read books that have adventure in them as well as strong female characters.

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

I can get angry too fast. Sometimes I’m way too impulsive for my own good. So I wish I would learn to calm down, you know, fly straight and level more often instead of doing all kinds of dives and high climbs and barrel rolls.

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

I don’t have one yet but if I did I’d have a dog or maybe two dogs and they’d both be Alaskan Malamutes. I love that breed. They are so gentle and affectionate and so wild and free looking.

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

Well, I wouldn’t go back before airplanes were invented so maybe it would have been fun to fly the old World War One biplanes. You know, planes like the SPAD, the Sopwith Camel, the Nieuport, and even German aircraft like the Fokker triplane with its three wings or the Albatros or their best plane, the Fokker D.VII. I would like to have been involved in dogfights with other planes and I’ll bet I would have come out on top most of the time.
