Character Interview Even Hippies Get The Blues

I'm hosting a character interview from "Even Hippies Get The Blues", a contemporary romance novel. The character doing the talking is the main character, Amy.

Character Interview

1) What do you like to do in your spare time?

I love to paint. It is my one true passion. If I could, I would spend every second ensconced in my studio apartment with pigments and clean canvas.

2) Who is your best friend, and why?
Casey (you have to imagine me saying her name with a groan, eyeroll, and quaint smile). Well, we’ve been friends for a long time. I met her in middle school and we were polar opposites, but still outcasts. She always made friends though. I never did, but she let me into her circle and we formed our own group of weirdoes. Now that we are older, she’s still my opposite but knows me like a sister. And, we always end up laughing about everything.

3) If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
My inability to handle everything life throws at me. I really do believe everyone is inherently good and deserves respect, but it is extremely hard to remember that when your psychotic coworker is dumping scalding cheddar broccoli soup down your side. I would love to not have the overpowering desire to punch her in the face.

4) If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?

People’s propensity to hate eachother for arbitrary reasons. I’ve studied a lot of philosophy and cannot find any difference in humanity’s need to survive and thrive. It seems pointless to me to hate another person just because you think they are different. I don’t want to step onto a soap box (I have a tendency to overanalyze and expound on things) I just wish people would stop creating differences that don’t exist.

5) Do you have a love interest? Can you tell us about him / her?
Yes. Oh my gosh. Travis... He’s, well, perfect. Long blond hair, rock climbs for fun, saves people’s lives for work (he’s a paramedic), and has a truly kind heart. Oh! And he gets me, which isn’t necessarily easy since I am as quirky as I am peace-loving. One more thing, I can’t say it too loud because he’s actually really insecure about it, but... he’s rich. Yeah, I know it’s weird, but he doesn’t like people to know he has more money than he knows what to do with. Hot, humble, life-saving... sigh. That’s my Travis! I’m a lucky girl.

“Sometimes peace can only come through chaos.”
Amy thought she had it all together. Her goals were set and she was working toward them seamlessly while practicing her peace-loving philosophy.
Her world of blissful ignorance crumbles when Travis, a blond paramedic with a body that can stop a truck, waltzes in to open her eyes... Just after Murphy, and his pesky law, paint a target on her back.
How many times can a waitress be interrogated in one day? Just how much orange acrylic paint can get caught in dreads before an interview? How does one retain their composure while dripping paint nude in their living room and staring down a trespassing police officer?
