Hello and welcome to part Two of my character conversation with Katrina Dobson. If you’re new to the blog, be sure to go back to the introduction and part one to catch up. I’ll be sure to link you to the next part at the end of the blog, once I get it posted. Be sure to subscribe to my email list for news about my author journey and to get notified of new releases. Without further ado, let’s welcome Katrina back for another fabulous conversation.
Ann: This is going to sound a bit weird, but I have a tough question for you.
Katrina: Go ahead.
Ann: What lie do you tell yourself while you’re in the hospital?
Katrina: You know this already, but for those who haven’t read my book, I will say that I tell myself that I don’t belong at that place, but I’m stuck there. The question I ask myself is, “Why did God bring me here and what does he have in store for me?”
Ann: Do you need friends?
Katrina: What kind of question is that? Of course, I need friends! I already have one friend, who is also my doctor, but I do wish my mom would be more supportive. I mean she’s despondent and wants to contradict everything I do. She used to be so supportive, that is until we wound up here What I wouldn’t give to have the close relationship with Mom again or at least have another friend to talk to when Dr. Anders is making her rounds or seeing other patients.
Ann: What physical thing do you fear the most after losing your sight?
Katrina: The images I see. Sometimes they are clear in my head, and sometimes they’re foggy replicas of some shadowy figure or shape. The dreams scare me too, but I know they are clues to the mystery I need to solve to get out of this weird trauma center.
Ann: If you could spend your last day on earth with anyone past or present, who would you choose
Katrina: Before we wound up at this private hospital, I would have said my mom, but now I’m not so sure.
Katrina: Is she was the last person I spent my dying days with, I’d fight to protect her from my dad until I breathe my last. Although I pray for him, I know he’s out there and he could hurt either one of us. I love Mom and I’d fight to the death to keep her safe.
Ann: What is your defining strength?
Katrina: Although my dreams and internal images scare me to death, I also consider them to be my defining strength, because they tell me more than I ever learned, or took for granted before my accident.
Ann: Let me give you a scenario. If you discovered that the person, you’d been mistaken for dies while you’re still in the hospital, how would you handle meeting her older sister?
Katrina: Wait what! You mean to tell me that I’ve been confused with another girl? How? Wait, don’t answer that, let’s see how it plays out in my story. For those of you reading this conversation, you’ll have to read the book when Ann finishes writing it to see how this story ends. Listen, I got to go, Dr. Anders wants to take me on a tour of the building. She says she’s got someone I need to meet. Talk to you later.
Ann: Thanks for stopping by my blog for a quick little chat. We’ll finish up the conversation next week.
Katrina: My pleasure, it’s been nice chatting with you. Got to run, bye!
