Main Character Monday: Katie Wilhite

Welcome back to Main Character Monday and today’s interview with Katie Wilhite. Katie is the main character from Amy Anguish’s new book, Destination: Fun Romance. With a road trip, girlfriends, and summer fun this book is perfect for a day at the beach (or even a day wishing you were at the beach!) Let’s jump right in and get to know Katie.

Tell me a little about yourself, Katie?

I just graduated from Freed-Hardeman University and am moving to Germantown (right outside of Memphis) to start working at the library there. It’s my dream job and I am pinching myself to believe I actually snagged it right out of school. Although I’m a bit nervous about having to meet all those new people.

Meeting new people can be stressful for some of us, but I’m sure you’ll do great. Tell me something about you that readers may find surprising?

This is sort of hard, because I really feel like I’m rather boring. Let’s go with this. I can’t figure out any of the fairy tale princesses that matches me most. Most girls can answer a question like that right away, but I can’t see myself in any of those stories as the girl. Maybe the beast sometimes …

I don’t imagine many girls would answer that way, though in truth, maybe we can all relate to him a little more than the princess. What is your favorite Bible verse and why?

One I’ve started clinging to more recently is Hebrews 4:15. “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.” The idea that Jesus can sympathize with my weaknesses is so comforting. Especially knowing how many weaknesses I have.

Is there a person from the Bible that you relate to most?

I don’t know if you’d say it’s relating to her, but I’ve always felt sorry for Job’s wife. Sure, she doesn’t handle the situation in the best way, but she’s grieving, too, and a lot of times we forget that all the stuff that happened to Job (minus the sores) happened to her, too. She lost all those kids and how awful would that feel? No wonder she wants to die.

Wow. I’ve never thought about her in that way. Great answer. The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Is there one of these characteristics you find is easier to show than the others?

Hm. I’d love to say self-control, but friends who’ve seen my temper would probably disagree. Honestly, I need to work on all of these more.

I think we can all relate to that. Is there one that is more challenging than the others?

The hardest one is patience. I am so impatient.

If you could give one message to those reading this interview, what would you tell them?

Don’t judge me too harshly when you start reading my story. I don’t always give a great first impression. Especially when I’m in pain.

Hmm. That brings up a lot of questions. But I’ll leave it to the readers to ask and find the answers to those as they read your story. For now, I want to ask a couple of just for fun questions. If you could visit just one place your entire life, where would you go?

Oh goodness! I mean, I’ve visited so many places now, it’s hard to pick. But I think I’d like to follow at least part of the Oregon trail. So many books I read growing up were about the wagon trains and I’d like to see what it looks like in real life.

You’re probably too young to remember that old Oregon Trail game. I think for those of my generation, it may have satisfied of our desires to follow the trail. I think we all died on the virtual trail one too many times! But isn’t it wonderful how what we read can pique our interest in new places like that? If you could choose one talent you don’t already have, what talent would you choose?

The ability to just go out and meet people instead of being so shy. The idea of putting myself in new situations totally freaks me out.

Now for some rapid fire questions.

Dark or Milk Chocolate? Dark

Beach or Mountains? Beach

Sweet Tea or Lemonade? Lemonade

And my final question. If you could describe Amy Anguish in three words, what would those words be?

Controlling, Abusive, and Mean

Well, that isn’t very complimentary. But I have read your story, and I have to admit I can see why you’d choose those words. She does force you into some predicaments that given your shy nature wouldn’t be easy. I want to thank you for joining me today. And readers, keep reading to find out more about Amy, Katie, and Katie’s story. Don’t forget to order your copy today while it is still on pre-order sale. 

More about Amy Anguish:

More About the Book:

It’s not every day you bring a boyfriend back as a souvenir.

Katie Wilhite is ready to settle into her new job as a librarian now that college is through, but friends Bree and Skye want one more girls’ trip, and when Bree insists this is her bachelorette fling, Katie agrees. What she didn’t agree to was allowing fun and flighty Skye to dictate the itinerary or for her anxiety to kick in harder than ever … right in front of a cute guy.

Camden Malone had no idea when he agreed to be the voice of reason on his cousin Ryan’s vacation that the trip wouldn’t stay in New Orleans as planned. But when Ryan plots with Skye so that the guys can tag along with the girls all week, he isn’t nearly as upset as he should be. Not with Katie’s fiery temper and flashing eyes intriguing him more by the minute.

Can Katie relax enough to trust Camden and a possible future, or will she continue to push him away as only a vacation fling? And can Camden move past a rocky history of his own to be able to jump into a better future? For a trip that was supposed to be all about fun, there’s a lot of romance going around.
