Character Interviews: Ella Mitchell

Name: Ella Blake (maiden name: Mitchell)

Significant Other: Joseph Blake

What is your strongest belief? God gives us things we don't deserve...and that we sometimes don't initially want!

How do you like to spend your time? Writing, or trying Uncle Bruce's kitchen creations.

If you could go anywhere, where would you go? My answer used to be 'anywhere but here.' I've changed, somehow. Backus is a comforting place, now. I couldn't leave these people.

What is your favorite food? Hamburgers, fresh off the grill, with the special seasoning Uncle Bruce uses. He still refuses to reveal the ingredients...but we'll get him to someday!

Describe yourself in one word: Distrustful

What type of music could you listen to for hours? Jazz. Joe sees it as an opportunity to pull me into a dance. Who wouldn't love that?

What is your favorite thing about Joe? His vibrant love of life, and the way he sees good in everyone, and every opportunity. I also love his persistence...and, okay, I'll admit... I enjoy how romantic he can be.

Do you wish that unicorns were real? No. Horses with horns? I can't think of anything worse!

How often do you sit in graveyards these days? Not as often as I would like to. I go once or twice a week. Joe still finds it morbid. Imagine that!

Describe your perfect day: In the morning, Joe, Davey, and I would head to the big city. We'd go to a park and have a picnic lunch, and Joe and Davey would play in the lake while I took some time to write. We'd go to a movie after, because I've always wanted to experience a theater. The day would end with us heading back home, just in time for a gala.

Ella (and Joe and Davey) can be found in the novel, Forgotten Memories.
