Crazy Little Thing Called Love


Interview with the heroine from Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Beth K. Vogt


1. Vanessa Hollister, tell me the most interesting thing about you.

I eloped with my boyfriend, Logan, when we were both seniors in high school. Most would probably find that interesting. My mother refers to that event as my “worst mistake ever.”

2. What do you do for fun?

I’m a paramedic and, believe it or not, I think my job is fun. Well, not the hours when I’m sitting around waiting for something to happen. During those times, I read a lot of books – which is also fun. But I’m a bit of an adrenaline junkie, thanks to my job.

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

I don’t go visit my parents that often. Don’t get me wrong – I love my parents. But you make choices, you know? And relationships are changed. And you can’t un-change them. Go back to the way things were.

4. What are you afraid of most in life?

Ghosts. Not real live ghosts. But ghosts of my past. So I stay focused on the present – and my future with Ted, my fiancé.

5. What do you want out of life?

I’m in my late twenties and you know what? I’m still trying to find home.

6. What is the most important thing to you?

The most important thing to me? One thing? When I’m on duty, it’s taking care of the person or persons who need me. Saving a life, maybe. When I’m off duty . . . its maintaining control of my life. Not that it’s out of control . . . but yeah, control is a good thing.

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

I read all kinds of books, both fiction and nonfiction. But I really enjoy biographies. It’s fun to read about other people’s lives – people who have done extraordinary things, like Erik Weihenmeyer, who was the first blind man to climb Mt. Everest.

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

I moved around a lot because my dad was in the military. It was challenging to have long-term friendships. I have one really good friend, Mindy. A forever friend. I wish I could have been more like her. She’s the one who kept our friendship alive all these years: calling, emailing, texting.

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

No pets. That’s probably a good thing. I can’t even remember to water a plant that one of the nurses at the hospital gave me for my birthday.

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

Oh, I’ve never been a fan of these questions. I don’t believe in going backward. What’s done is done. But you’re not necessarily talking about going back and changing anything or fixing anything, are you? I guess it would be fun to go back and meet Logan’s grandparents. Yes, I’ve always been sorry I never had the chance to meet them.
