Interview with the hero from Falcon by Ronie Kendig:

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

About the most interesting thing about me is that I’m not interesting. I’m just a soldier doing what soldiers do, and my commitment is to the team and the mission.

2.  What do you do for fun?

When we have some downtime, I like a game of baseball like the next guy. But there’s not enough of that, though I think it tends to help us keep our head in the game—the combat game, that is.

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

When we are home, I dread the quiet time where everyone wants to sit around and shoot the breeze. The conversation invariably comes around to me and how I’m doing. It’s like they’re waiting for me to fall apart or something.

4.  What are you afraid of most in life?

Failing. Failing my team. Failing myself. Again.

5.  What do you want out of life?

To know that I did all I could with all that I was given.

6.  What is the most important thing to you?

Being a man of honor, someone my guys know they can trust.
7.  Do you read books? If so, what is your favorite type of book?

If I get time to read—and that doesn’t happen much—you’ll usually find me reading the memoir of a soldier, Marine, or other brother in the Armed Forces.

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

The past. But that’s a lost cause before I ever said it, so I don’t go there. I just keep my eyes on the target, on moving forward and being the best I can be.

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

Nah, being deployed kinda kills that. But if I had one, I’d probably adopt a retired working dog. One who’s already been there, done that like I have.

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

Like I said a couple of questions ago, that’s a lost cause, so I’d rather not dwell on it. It’s painful enough knowing what happened in the past. Thinking about going back and fixing it doesn’t help anyone. Especially not her.

  1. Salvatore, great name, I think that being a soldier is very interesting.


  2. Oh, I want this book. I’m intrigued by the last question and would love to find out what happened in his past and who “she” is… 🙂 Thank you for the chance to win one of Ronie’s books.

  3. I got to read it when our library got it and I loved it. I think Ronie is a fasinating author.

  4. Falcon is a very deep man hiding his hurts, faults,relationships and unforgiveness of-her and himself. Ronie has dug deep and pulled out all of Falcon’s hidden faults and secrets and Falcon is indeed worthy to read from page 1 to the very last page.


  5. I love Ronie’s books.

  6. Reading Falcon now. LOVE it! I will probably finish it tonite. 🙂 And I started it only 2 days ago.

  11. Thanks for the chance to enter your contest, I’ve not read a book by Kendig and I’d love to. On a side note…your Love Inspired book, The Nanny’s New Family looks amazing! I was a Nanny in my younger years and will have to add your book to my “to be read” list!

  12. Enjoyed the interview, although he seems like a man of few words. I have read the book and really enjoyed it. It would be a good addition to my library.
