Main Character Monday: Bree Henley

Main Character Interview Bree HenleyToday on Main Character Monday interview, we welcome Bree Henley. Bree is one of a trio of friends from the Roadtrip Romance series by Amy R. Anguish. Bree’s story can be found in the second book, Roadtrip for Two, newly released by Scrivenings Press. We’re glad to have time with Bree today. And now, we’re going to jump right in.

From what I’ve heard, you and your friends love to take road-trips. Is there a destination that stands out as a favorite?

Oh man, that’s actually a hard question because we’ve taken quite a few trips over the last few years. I’m going to go with Boston. My friend Katie absorbed the history and Skye found all the fun shops to visit. And the food was amazing!

Sounds like you enjoyed a bit of everything. I’ve never been to Boston. I’ll have to check it out sometime. Have you always taken trips in the summer or are you an equal opportunity traveler?

Definitely equal opportunity. We did a few trips over spring break and fall break too. It was just easier in the summer since we were in school. And now I’m going to be a teacher, so I’ll still have that time off.

Makes perfect sense. Do you have a favorite travel tip for our readers?

When packing for a cruise, plan for the worst. And by worst, I mean not taking the cruise. While on a ship you might not need more than sandals, trapped on land, you’re probably going to want better walking shoes. And maybe an umbrella.

Sounds like there’s a story behind that tip. Maybe it’s your story? We’ll let our readers go check that out for themselves. We’ll keep going.  Abraham, Paul, and Jacob were all travelers in scripture. Is there one of those whose story you enjoy most?

Neat question! I think I’m going to go with Paul because he went so many places. Abraham and Jacob just went back and forth. Think of all his adventures! Though I could do without the beatings or the snake.

I think it’s a safe bet most of us could do without those experiences! Many of the New Testament apostles traveled on their missionary journeys. Have you ever gone on a mission trip?

I actually went on one sophomore year. Nathan talked me into it. We went up to Canada for a week and put on a VBS and gospel meeting. And got to see Niagara Falls too.

It’s always good when you get to see some of the areas where you serve. Jeremiah 29:11 and Psalm 139:16 tell us God has a purpose and plans for our lives. Are you a planner? Have you ever had your plans changed in unexpected ways? How did you cope with that?

I’m not a planner as much as my friend Katie, but more than my friend Skye. In other words, I make more like goals, but don’t map out every step to get there. For instance, this summer I’m working on finding a full-time job, but in the meantime, I’m earning money other ways just in case. I think the only thing I’ve really planned out in detail was my wedding.

We spoke briefly of Jacob earlier. His trip back home wasn’t easy because he knew he was going to have to face his big brother and they weren’t on the greatest of terms. How would you handle a situation like that?

Oh man. I’m not sure. For one thing, I’m the oldest child—my sister is a few years younger. I guess I’d sort of do what I did when I first ran into Nathan at the airport the other day—try and play it cool and not let him see my heart is broken because of our estranged relationship. Not easy.

I can imagine it wasn’t. And while I’m dying to dig deeper into that one, I’ll leave it alone for now. We don’t want to give to many spoilers. Everyone needs to read your story for themselves. So instead, I think we’ll finish up with one more question and then some fun, rapid-fire questions. Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?

I mean, I could probably talk all day, but you don’t want to listen to me go on and on. I’m not THAT interesting. But I did find some fun spots in Dallas and I highly recommend spending a few days there. My favorite part was probably walking around looking at murals in Deep Ellum. I love those things.

I hope everyone does check out Dallas, even if it’s through reading your story in Roadtrip for Two instead of visiting the area in person. Now the rapid-fire questions.

Chocolate or strawberry? Strawberry

Morning or night? Night

Rain or shine? Shine

Ham or turkey? Turkey

Just for fun, if you could have one superpower, what would it be?

Mind-reading. That would have solved so many problems between Nathan and me. We might not even have broken up!

If you could describe Amy Anguish in three words, what would they be?

Persistent. Goal-oriented. Meddling.

A big thank you to Bree Henley for joining me for this Main Character Monday interview. It’s been fun. Readers, please stick around to find out a bit more about Roadtrip for Two and author Amy R. Anguish.

More About Roadtrip for Two

Recovering from heartbreak is hard when the ex-fiancé tags along …

Dallas wasn’t in the plans when Bree Henley set out to use the nonrefundable honeymoon tickets from her canceled wedding. Nor was running into ex-fiancé Nathan Hart. But their mutual friends and the weather have other ideas. A hurricane cancels their cruise and Bree decides to turn the disaster into a roadtrip for one, never imagining Nathan would object.

Nathan is furious when he uncovers the plot to get him back with Bree. But he can’t just let her go roaming around the big city of Dallas alone. Though he knows calling off their wedding was the right thing to do, he still cares for Bree. And before he knows what hits him, he’s volunteered to tag along. Suddenly, it’s a trip for two.

Spending the week together might remind them of why they fell in love. But is it enough to overcome the obstacles standing in the way of “til death do us part”?
