Skye Jones: Main Character Monday Interview

Skye Jones Main Character MondayThis week we’re sitting down with Skye Jones from Amy R. Anguish’s Operation Find a Job Guy for a Main Character Monday interview. Welcome, Skye. Let’s jump right in. Our readers may have met you in Amy’s previous Roadtrip Romance books. For those who haven’t, can you tell us a bit about yourself?

I love adventure. A boring life is not for me. I love to travel, especially in my red convertible, Rosie.

Travelings in a red convertible definitely doesn’t sound boring. Tell me something about you that readers may find surprising?

I actually love and admire my sister, when she’s not trying to act like a second mom. Our mom passed away when I was in high school, and for some reason Rain thinks she needs to take her place. She does not. But besides that, the wedding planning business my sister has built, it’s pretty impressive. Just don’t tell her I said so.

I imagine that could be a difficult situation for both of you. It’s great that you’ve not let it influence your love for her or your pride in her accomplishments. If you could solve one world problem, which one would you solve?

Not enough fun job opportunities. When I do a job search, there are an endless number of desk jobs, jobs that chain you to one place in a dark office and never let you go anywhere. I need something with more freedom. And more fun.

That’s certainly not an answer I’ve heard before in my interviews. But I can see where it would be an issue when you’re trying to find what you want to do with your life. I think everyone wants to enjoy and be passionate about their job. The New Testament tells of Mary and Martha. Two sisters who react to a visit from Jesus in very different ways. Mary chooses to spend time with Him, while Martha chooses to take care of the physical needs. Are you more Mary or Martha?

I guess probably Mary. I mean, Martha was the one working in the kitchen while Mary sat at Jesus’s feet. And you’ve already heard some of my feelings on work.

Yes, we have. And I have to agree, at least to some extent. Housework and. cooking for a crowd do not sound like a job I’d enjoy either. “Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.” James 1:27 – Do you think living out this verse would make a difference in your life? How?

Honestly, I’ve never given much thought to widows and orphans. Funny, considering in some ways I feel like an orphan. After Mom died, Dad lost himself in work, leaving me with Rain. You’d think I’d have more sympathy for others in that plight? I need to be. Rain says I’m selfish and spoiled, but I’m not. I just have to solve some of my own problems before I can focus on others. But soon. After all, I have a deadline here.

A deadline, huh? That’s intriguing. I can’t wait for our readers to dive into your story to find out about this ultimatum you’re facing. So the James verse doesn’t really resonate with you. Is there a verse of scripture that holds great meaning in your life?

Ephesians 6:4 “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger.” Enough said.

Hmmm. Could this have something to do with that deadline you referenced? Don’t answer that. Let’s let readers find out for themselves. If you could leave readers with one message, what would it be?

Be very careful if a bowtie-wearing attorney starts hanging around. Those guys can get under your skin and ruin so many well-laid plans. Or maybe change is a better word than ruin.

I feel like this is spoken from experience. Maybe we should have this bow-tie wearing attorney on to give his side of the story. For now, let’s have some fun questions. We know you like fun. So, they should be perfect for you. If you could buy one thing, without worrying about the cost, what would you buy?

A different road trip every year with all my friends. I absolutely hate that our road trips together are no longer going to happen … at least not with just the three girls.

What one hobby would you keep if you had to give up all other hobbies?

Does traveling count as a hobby? Photography is a hobby, right? I always take selfies when I travel. Does that count?

I think both of those count as hobbies. And they both sound great. Just a few more this or that questions for you.

Apples or Pears? Pears

Indoors or Outside? Indoors

I have to say, for an adventure loving girl, that one surprises me. Reading or Writing? Reading, though I’m not terribly fond of either of these (don’t hate me)

And one final question. Using only three words, how would you describe Amy R. Anguish?

Motherish, instigator, ironic

I want to thank Skye Jones for joining us on this Main Character Monday interview. I’ve enjoyed getting a look inside what makes her who she is. I hope you have too. Keep reading to find out more about Skye, Amy Anguish and where you can get a copy of Operation find a Job Guy.

A little more about Amy R. Anguish:

Amy R Anguish grew up a preacher’s kid, and in spite of having lived in seven different states that are all Amy Anguishsouth of the Mason Dixon line, she is not a football fan. Currently, she resides in Tennessee with her husband, daughter, and son, and usually a bossy cat or two. Amy has an English degree from Freed-Hardeman University that she intends to use to glorify God, and she wants her stories to show that while Christians face real struggles, it can still work out for good.

More About Skye Jones and Operation Find a Job Guy:

Skye Jones has one goal for the summer—keep her father from taking away her convertible. That’s the only reason she agrees to work at her sister’s bridal shop in Boulder, Colorado, while she searches for a non-boring job. Why else would she have anything to do with weddings when she has no interest in marriage?

Benjamin Smith somehow ended up as a groomsman in two weddings over the summer, so he’s spending a lot of time at Happily Ever After events. Falling for a blonde with no dreams of settling down wasn’t in his five-year plan, yet the more he sees Skye, the more he wants to figure her out.

But all she sees him as is a boring attorney−her complete opposite.

Besides, romance is supposed to be for Skye’s friends, not her. And she’s in Colorado to get a job, not a guy. Right?
