LastChanceJusticeInterview with the heroine from Last Chance for Justice by Kathi Macias:

1. Lynn Myers, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I suppose the most interesting thing about me is that I’m a person who absolutely despises change or surprises, yet I left the small town of Bloomfield, where I was born and raised and thought I would die, to marry a man who “blew” into town one summer and swept me off my feet.

2. What do you do for fun?

I’m a quiet person, who prefers reading or taking long walks to watching TV or going to parties. Since popping back into Bloomfield, however, I find myself getting involved with the garden club, which is actually proving to be more enjoyable than I had expected.

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

Confrontation! I’d rather be on the moon than deal with issues head-on, particularly if I anticipate unpleasant results. But I’m learning that once faced, those issues tend to lose their power over me, so I think I’m heading in the right direction!

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

Again, changes and surprises—I imagine because they leave me feeling out of control. And I don’t like being out of control and facing unknown circumstances. Sameness comforts me, but God has been allowing a lot of changes to come into my life lately, so I’m learning to lean more on Him—hence, to experience less fear.

5. What do you want out of life?

Until very recently I would have said peace and quiet. I still like that, of course, but I’m learning now that I can find joy (and yes, even peace!) in the midst of unexpected and unsettling circumstances. So now I can honestly say that what I want most out of life is to learn to trust God more—regardless of the circumstances.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

All the things I’ve discussed so far have come together to help me see that being where God wants me to be is the most important thing. It took some difficult times and even some grief to grasp this, but I believe I’m starting to “get it.”

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

I absolutely LOVE to read! Because of my personality, you would think I’d stick to predictable romances—you know, happily-ever-after endings and all that. But I actually enjoy a bit of adventure and suspense in my novels, maybe because I excluded that from my personal life and enjoying experiencing it vicariously. Still, even with intrigue and excitement driving my reading material, I want them to end happily. And I definitely want them to be Christ-centered.

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

My timidity. My reluctance to try anything new. But God is working on that with me, so I’m encouraged.

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

Oh yes, I have a wonderful cocker spaniel named Beasley. He’s been with me for years, and goes everywhere with me. He is a wonderful companion.

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

Lately I’ve thought that I’d like to go back to my growing-up years in Bloomfield so I could appreciate them more—and let the people there know that I appreciate them as well. I can’t, of course, but now that I have a second chance to be part of the Bloomfield community, I’ll have to keep that in mind and make a point of expressing that appreciation every chance I get.
