Character Interview

What is your name? Do you have a nickname?
Hi, I’m Ana, that’s with one ‘n’, and no I don’t have a nickname.

What is your character’s hair color?
Well, I guess, since your readers can’t see me, that makes sense to ask. I have red hair that I almost always wear in French braids, that way it stays out of the way.

Who are your friends and family? Who do you surround yourself with? Who are the people you’re closest to? Who do you wish you were closest to?
Wow! That’s a lot of questions at once. My best friend ever since I moved to Myrtle Beach is Daisy Vincent. She’s awesome. Her mom lets me board my horse at their place for no charge. Daisy takes care of both horses, and I get over there to ride as much as I can.

Recently, a new girl moved into town. Her name’s Karlie. Daisy and I befriended her, so we hangout as much as we can. Then there’s Will, he works at The Crab Shack that Dad owns and operates. Will’s a year older than Daisy, Karlie, and I. He’s helped me—I mean Dad—a lot this year.

As for family, I have the best family ever! Mom stays at home and takes care of me and Dad. As I said, Dad owns a store for fishermen and hunters. People pay him to take them out on the ocean to go fishing. Every fall and spring, though Mom and I get nervous as the storms move through and the seas get rough, but Dad’s great with his boats and knows when to go out and when not to.

Where do you go when you’re angry?
Anytime I need time alone or to think, I go to the Harrier, Dad’s fishing boat. I climb up onto the flybridge—that’s the deck above the cabin—and sit and think. The cry of seagulls and the lap of water against the boat and dock really help me to relax and figure out any problems.

What is your biggest fear? Who have you told this to? Who would you never tell this to? Why?
Oh my, that’s not fair. I’ve never told my parents this, but I’m afraid Dad’ll be in a boating accident and be lost at sea. It’s terrifying really. The only person I’ve told is Root, my appaloosa. I don’t want to talk about this. If I do, I’m afraid it’ll come true. Now, look what you did. My dad had better not get in an accident because I talked with you.

Well, I’d better go, now. Thanks for chatting with me. See you around. Oh, and if you’re ever in Myrtle Beach, Oregon, I’ll meet you at Myrtle Beach Coffee Shop and buy you a chocolate chai.

About the Book

Protect friendship, family or a creature that's not supposed to exist?

Ana and Daisy have been friends since third grade, but a rift in the space-time continuum in their little town may change that. When a unicorn waltzes into the pasture with Daisy’s appaloosas, a poacher, who will stop at nothing to gain the unicorn horn and its healing tears, shows up. Daisy is focused on saving the unicorn while Ana’s parents face sudden life-threatening health issues. When Ana learns about the healing tears, she’s forced to choose between friendship and her family’s health.

Can the girls find the grace to compromise and save Ana’s parents and the unicorn?
