Hello and welcome!
Here we are on day 4 and today’s guest is another heroine. Read on, find out who she is and what she has to say.
What is your full name?
My full name is Quinn Grace Jamieson. Grace was my maternal grandmother’s name.
Do you have a nickname?
Mmm, not really. When I was little my parents called me Quinny. Oh, and a boy in high school used to call me “Q”. He’d said, “Good morning, Q.” or “What’s going on, Q?” Stuff like that. But he was the only one that called me that.
What is one word best describes you?
I don’t know. I guess maybe, dedicated. Ha, or maybe I should say naïve. No, I’ll stick with dedicated. It’s more positive. Anyway, it’s what I’ve heard others say about me. It’s not something I think about.
Describe what you are wearing now to our readers.
Well nothing glamorous. I’ve only been out of the hospital for a few days. The wound on my right side is still tender. So, I am wearing a loose-fitting purple t-shirt and a pair of grey boxer shorts with the waist band rolled down a little. Even though my wound is covered, I can’t stand any pressure on it.
Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?
I think so. I mean it was a pretty traumatic event for me. She did a good job showing that despite my attack I still tried to… Sorry, the memory is pretty raw. It’s a difficult thing to go through. I have an appointment tomorrow with a psychologist. You know, to talk about everything. Anyway, yes, the author portrayed my reaction accurately. It’s what I do. That instinct to try and save a life is ingrained in me.
What makes you laugh out loud?
Right now, nothing. Not because I don’t want to, but because it hurts too much… physically. But what makes me laugh out loud are unexpected things. You know a quick-witted comment that you don’t expect. Or maybe an action from someone or some animal that is unexpected. Things like that.
What is your favourite dessert?
That’s a tough one. I love dessert, but I exercise every day so I can eat whatever. Well, not now. I haven’t exercised since the day of the… of the incident. Can’t for another few weeks. So, I guess I’ll be staying away from sweets for a bit, or at least full portions. Maybe, I’ll eat a little.
Anyway, if I have to pick one, I’ll say cheesecake, all kinds.
What is your favourite drink?
Alcoholic? Ciders. Non-alcoholic? It’s a toss up between coffee and water.
What is your greatest fear?
Wow! I guess I’ve lived through it. I mean that wasn’t my greatest fear until it happened. Fighting for my life… what could be worse?
What is your favourite colour?
It used to be red. Not anymore, not now. Maybe I’ll like it again some day. I do like purple too though. That was always my second favourite. I guess it’s moved ahead now.
What do you wear when you go to sleep?
Before incident – nothing or just underwear. Well, maybe a light t-shirt in the winter. Now, a loose-fitting tank and my underwear.
What is the perfect romantic date?
Do I have to answer this question? Sorry, it just reminds me of… him… the incident. I can’t think of romance, dating, before or in the future. I don’t know.
How ticklish are you? Where are you ticklish?
Very ticklish. Well besides the usual places like sides, underarms, belly. I’m strangely ticklish at the back of my knees. Oh, and between my shoulder blades.
What’s your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Vanilla and fresh ground coffee. The vanilla reminds me of my mother’s baking. And the coffee, well I just like the smell. Always have, even years before I liked the taste.
When you look at a man what catches your interest?
Sorry, I can’t answer this. Nothing, at the moment.
Do you have somebody in your life now?
What is one word best describes him?
Really? Do you not know what happened to me?
Sorry, I do not know.
Is your book part of a series? What does the future hold for the readers of the series?
No, this is not part of a series, but the author may eventually turn this short story into a full length novel.
Thank you for your time, Quinn. Wishing you speedy recovery.
Now I am curious, what happened to her? It must be pretty bad.
Her story is “Not Worth Saving” by Sandra J. Jackson.
Sandra J. Jackson was born in Montreal, Quebec but has lived in Ontario for over 30 years.
An avid reader of many genres, Sandra’s writing does not fall into any specific category. However, her goal is to create stories that pull readers into the book and make them feel as though they are a part of the story.
Sandra’s debut novel, Promised Soul, was originally released in 2015 by her former publisher. Her second novel, Playing in the Rain – Book 1 of the Escape Series, released in September 2017 also by the same former publisher. Both books were re-released by her new publisher in early 2018. And in August of the same year, Playing in the Rain was the finalist in the Golden Box Book Awards under the science fiction category. She holds a professional membership with the Canadian Author Association and is a member of Writers’ Ink.
With book 2 of The Escape Series due to be released sometime in 2019, Sandra is currently working on editing book 3 of the series, her first trilogy.
