Tuesday Promotion in Motion – Penny Zeller and Hailee

Posted by Lisa Lickel on November 15, 2011

It is an honor to be a guest on Reflections in Hindsight. Today, Lisa is going to interview my heroine, Hailee Annigan. Hailee was inspired by a piece of mail I received regarding orphanages. I knew I wanted to write a story about a girl placed in an orphanage and how she came to find herself in that predicament.

 

About the book:

For years, orphan Hailee Annigan was just a ragamuffin in the Cincinnati streets, stealing food to keep her two younger brothers fed. Her thievery landed her in a home for delinquent youngsters, where her life was changed, thanks to her teachers. Now, nineteen-year-old Hailee excitedly heads to Montana to be a teacher, yet she’s still plagued by her shameful past and the fear of never seeing her brothers again.

Based on his upbringing in high-society Boston, no one would have guessed that Nate Adams would attend seminary and become a church pastor in rugged Montana. Even now, Nate’s parents refuse to put aside their own plans for his future and accept his calling.

When their paths converge, an immediate attraction draws Hailee and Nate together, even as the pressures and demands of others pull them apart. Can the unlikely pair come to terms with their pasts and face the future together?

Buy Hailee on Amazon.

or at Christian Book Distributors.

I love Hailee’s story because it gives such a wonderful example of forgiveness and of second chances. It also reinforces the fact that God is with us always. I also love to infuse humor into my novels, so that, too, would be one of my favorite things about this story.  So…without further ado, I introduce to you, Hailee Annigan, as interviewed by Lisa Lickel…

 

Hello, Hailee, and thank you so much for talking with me today! To begin, could you just tell us a little bit about yourself? Hello, Lisa, it’s a pleasure being a guest on Reflections in Hindsight. I am 19 years old and was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio. I have two younger brothers, Reuben and Philip. I am an orphan and tended to and provided for my brothers after our parents died. My dream is to be a teacher. Even as a young girl, I taught my brothers arithmetic and reading from memory from what I had learned when I attended school.

What’s one of your most interesting traits? I tend to be clumsy. J It’s the oddest thing, really. I’m not clumsy if I’m running, only if I’m walking and tripping over my own feet. I’ve tripped over stairs, while dancing, and pretty much just while walking down the street. It is quite embarrassing to say the least!

What’s your favorite indulgence? My pa used to tell me I could run like the wind. So I would say my favorite indulgence is running, especially since I have a bit of a competitive streak.

What do you fear more than anything else? More than anything else, I fear never seeing my two younger brothers again. I miss them something dreadful. Now that I’m traveling to a teaching position hundreds of miles away in Pine Haven, Montana, I fear Reuben, Philip, and I will never be reunited. I also fear that someone will find out about my past and it will jeopardize my new teaching position and my hopes for a new life.

If you could change one part of your past, undo one decision, what would it be? I wish my brothers and I wouldn’t have been orphaned. Sometimes I don’t understand why things like that happen.

What is one thing that amazes you? One thing that amazes me is how the Lord never abandons us. I once thought that God left me or was too busy to care about all that was happening in my life. I’ve since learned that that wasn’t the case at all. It was me who left Him and that He is always here for us through the good times and the bad.

Thank you, Lisa, for graciously allowing me to be interviewed on your blog. I’ve enjoyed being your guest!

It was a delight to meet you, Hailee. ~Lisa
