Know the Heroine from Finding Hope

Here are some fun questions to help us know your heroine.

It’s late, she’s bored. What does she do?

Read a good mystery or cuddle up with her guy, Ren.

What kind of food would she impulse buy if hungry?

Samantha’s favorite is chocolate cake.

Describe the kind of clothes she prefers to wear.

You’ll usually find Samantha in jeans or khakis and a comfortable t-shirt short or long sleeve depending on the weather.

Does she know how to fix things?

Samantha has done some remodeling. Her most recent project involved installing new drywall at her Aunt Gladys’ house.

She tried to do something and it went badly. Tell us about it.

Samantha is a Marine veteran dealing with PTSD and injuries she received from an IED explosion. She’s dealt with a lot of challenges over the past year and a half. She had to work hard to find her new normal and along the way she hurt people when she lashed out in frustration at her limitations. Especially at the beginning. One incident hurt her Mom’s feelings and Samantha felt lower than a slug after the incident.

How does she act around children she doesn’t know?

She’s normally a quiet and reserved person, but if the child looks scared Samantha will try to put them at ease by talking to them.

What is she like first thing in the morning?

That depends on whether or not she had a good night. If she didn’t sleep well you don’t want to talk to her until she’s had a least one cup of coffee.

Can she use chopsticks?

She used them as a kid, then she got out of the habit. She needs to practice again, because her current attempts have been pathetic.

Does she drink coffee? If so, how does she take it? If not, what does she drink instead?

She drinks her coffee black when she drinks it. Chai tea and hot chocolate are also her drinks of choice. What she’s drinking depends on the time of day and her mood.

What apps would she have on her phone?

The normal ones for google, her camera, spider solitaire, Instagram and Facebook. She’d rather talk to a person face-to-face than text or post on Facebook.

Android or iPhone?

Android. That’s what her first phone had and she never felt the need to learn a new operating system.

Earrings or unpierced ears?

Pierced ears. She wears basic stud earrings most of the time, but has some fancy earrings for when she goes to parties or on dates.

Tattoos or unadorned skin?

Unadorned skin. She admires tattoos on other people, but has never felt the need to get one herself.

Personal vehicle or public transport?

She drives an SUV for personal use.

Recycle or toss?

Recycle whenever possible. She’s seen too many places around the world with major trash issues. She wants to do her part to save the planet and its resources.

Thanks for helping us get to know your heroine!
