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

I’m imaginary. Seriously, I have no corporeal body. You’ve heard of the woman who lived in a shoe…I live inside an author’s head. You just wouldn’t believe the stuff she keeps in here.

2. What do you do for fun?

I hang out with my friends. We study the Bible and eat cheesecake. Since I don’t have a body and a real figure to worry about, I usually have seconds.

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

I found it really hard to let go of Sharon’s ear. I was here first, after all. I was whispering my story long before the others came along with theirs. Even with my story complete, I was reluctant to let Terri take my place. But, it seems to have worked out.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

Getting it wrong. You know, God put my friends and I up here to help Sharon fulfill her purpose. That’s quite a responsibility and I take it very seriously.

5. What do you want out of life?

To fulfill my purpose. It’s important that my message come through loud and clear. So many people spend their lives beating themselves up over past mistakes. Parked next to a failure that they think should define them. That isn’t what God wants for any of us.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

Dear, really…I think the answers to questions 4 and 5 define my goals pretty well. Can we move along?

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

We all do a lot of vicarious reading. Our author does love a good book and her tastes are all over the place. Personally, I wish she’d read a few more romance novels.

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

I think I’d like to have a real body for a while. Living in someone’s head is a bit restrictive. There are so many things I could experience If I had my own arms and legs.

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

Believe it or not, there are animals up here too. Let’s see. Two dogs from my story, a lab named Sara and an Irish setter named Opie. They had a part in Terri’s story as well, along with a second lab named Angel. Terri drug a whole zoo in here and Pam brought the barnyard with a goat, a cat, and an iguana. It’s a bit like Noah’s ark.

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

I’d like to live in King Arthur’s head for a while. All those tales of jousting, and honor, and dragon fighting. Can you imagine?
