91TG0SqeneL._SL1500_Interview with the heroine from Grave Danger by Katy Lee:

1. Doctor Lydia Muir, Ph.D, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

Well, I think my ability to assemble all 206 bones of the human body in their correct anatomical order from top to bottom, including the smallest bone of the human skeleton, the stapes bone in the inner ear, is pretty interesting, but I suppose not everyone would agree.

2. What do you do for fun?

Refer to question #1.

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

Ugh, I hate parties of any kind. I tower over every person, even many of the men. Plus, my topics of choice tend to cause people’s eyes to glaze over. I suppose you can take the girl out of the lab, but you can’t take the lab out of the girl.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

What if I’m not as accomplished and smart as my father?

5. What do you want out of life?

To receive the credit of my accomplishments on my own, not for whom my father is in the world of science.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

Service. My Savior came to serve, and that is what I shall do.

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

I bet you think I’m going to say Gray’s Anatomy? Okay, maybe I am.

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

My height. My dad thinks it’s cute to call me his trinket, but the other names my height has incited, like beanpole, sunshade and giraffe, tell me differently.

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

No pets, but would love a dog. The K-9 units at the police station seem like they would make great bone-sniffers. They could be really helpful to a forensic anthropologist like me. Maybe I could convince that sheriff on Stepping Stones Island to bring one in. I sure could use the help to find the missing skull needed to identify the skeleton the sheriff unearthed recently.

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

See my mom one more time before she died so young. She was the glue between my father and me. Something other than science.
