Today we’re joined by Tracy Allen, the protagonist in author Kathryn J. Bain’s Fade to the Edge.

What was your life like before your author started pulling your strings? 
I felt like I was finally pulling my life back together after my husband left me. But no, she has to come along and terrorize me.

What’s the one trait you like most about yourself? 
How much I love my family. 

What do you like least about yourself? 
I have no self-confidence. For a while now, I’ve felt like I just don’t have much of a life without my husband or son.

What is the strangest thing your author has had you do or had happen to you? 
My husband had a mistress, and this crazy author thought it would be a good idea for me to break into her condominium. Me, the one person afraid of her own shadow. What was she thinking? But I’d do anything to get my son back.

Do you argue with your author? If so, what do you argue about?
No, I don’t argue much with anyone. I just go along.

What is your greatest fear? 
I always thought it was Ross Ridge, but it turned out to be losing my child.

What makes you happy? 
Watching my son play baseball. He’s good, even at seven-years-old. It’s fun to watch him nod my way when he’s getting ready to steal a base. 

If you could rewrite a part of your story, what would it be? Why? 
I would rewrite the part where my son disappeared, then the bad things that occurred after would never have happened. 

Of the other characters in your book, which one bugs you the most? Why? 
No question, Jenny, my sister. She has such confidence that I wish I had, yet at times she’s also very condescending.

Of the other characters in your book, which one would you love to trade places with? Why? 
Definitely my best friend Vonnie. She’s a success with her boutique business. And her husband loves her so much. She doesn’t have to worry about her family ever falling apart.

Tell us a little something about your author. Where can readers find her website/blog? 
Kathryn J. Bain, my author, has a website at www.kathrynjbain.com where she has a weekly Christian blog. 

What's next for you? 
I’m thinking of moving. That might help me forget some of what occurred. I’m definitely going to get a job so I don’t have to worry about being supported by anyone. I’ve learned I can take care of myself. And I will.

Where’s DJ?

A question that torments Tracy Allen. If she hadn’t slept in, her son would be safe. Only one person could be responsible. Her soon to be ex. But when he’s murdered, and DJ’s still not found, she knows something more sinister is going on than a custody battle.

A mother should keep her child safe. But she didn’t. And now the same question slams into her soul over and over again.

Where’s DJ?
