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

I harbor a long-buried secret that even my husband, Joe, doesn’t know about, because if he did, he might leave me.

2. What do you do for fun?

Ride bikes with Joe

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

Painting the spare bedroom because Joe wants to transform the room into a nursery.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

Joe’s reaction when I finally get around to telling him my secret

5. What do you want out of life?

Joe and me to be happy

6. What is the most important thing to you?

Joe, and the special-needs children I teach every day

7. Do you read?

Yes If so, what is your favorite type of book to read? Books that help me be a better teacher to my kids.

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

My past

9. Do you have a pet?

Not currently, although some kittens show up in my garage that sure woo my heart. 

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

July 7, 1976, Fort Wayne, Indiana, because that’s when time stopped for me.

  4. And the secret’s only the beginning, Mary. This story takes the reader to unexpected places. 🙂

    I patterned Lily, Golden Girl, after one of my granddaughters. The cover pic isn’t my granddaughter, but they bear an amazing resemblance.

  5. I’d love to be entered- this is a new author to me 🙂
