Hello and welcome to the final segment of my character conversation with Katrina Dobson from Inner Vision. I encourage you to go back and read the introduction, part one and part two of my conversation before proceeding to the rest of the interview, if you havenâ€™t already done so. I also encourage you to sign up for my mailing list to receive a free short story, stay up-to-date with author happenings, and get a behind the scenes look into my author journey. To get notified when I upload new audio/video content, please subscribe to my podcast and YouTube channel. Without further ado, hereâ€™s the rest of my character interview. Sit back, relax, and enjoy.
Ann: What is your ultimate goal?
Katrina: My goal is two-fold. First of all, I want to find out who brought me to this strange hospital, and why Iâ€™m here in the first place. Second of all, I want to uncover the secrets hidden here. Once I do that, then Mom and I can go home.
Ann: What about your father?
Katrina: I pray that I can somehow lead him to Christ, but I canâ€™t say when thatâ€™ll happen. Remember when I told you that mom supports me?
Ann: Yeah, what about it?
Katrina: Truth is, she did, until we arrived at the hospital. Since then, sheâ€™s become more passive. I mean sheâ€™s hidden herself in some type of shell. But when I start trying to communicate with the people, I think I see, she acts as if thatâ€™s a trigger to her PTSD.
Ann: I thought you had PTSD, too?
Katrina: I do, but Iâ€™m using my inner vision as a strength, instead of a weakness. I have nightmares where I see my dad beating my mom, but hereâ€™s the weird part: Heâ€™s threatened to hit me, but heâ€™s never actually laid a hand on me. His actions make me believe that he blames Mom for my accident.
Ann: Do you have a positive or negative body image?
Katrina: If you had asked me that five years ago, I probably would have told you that I have no body image at all, but now, I have a positive outlook on life. Letâ€™s put it that way. Like anyone else, I have my own fears and emotions, but If I know somethingâ€™s not right or someone does something that goes against my beliefs, Iâ€™ll fight tooth and nail to right that wrong or make the person beg for forgiveness.
Ann: Is your father one of those people?
Katrina: Absolutely. Heâ€™s abusing my mother for something that I had no control over, so somebody has to make him face the music. If I have to be the one to do it so be it.
Ann: Who or what would you die for?
Katrina: Iâ€™d lay down my life to give honor and glory to my Lord and savior Jesus Christ, and Iâ€™d die to protect my mother. Though she lashes out at me, I still love her. I realize that sheâ€™s not herself right now, but if she were stronger, sheâ€™d do the same for me, I just know it!
Ann: Do you have a plan for tomorrow? Next week? Next year?
Katrina: Listen, I take one day at a time until I can gather information. The only plans I have; are the ones I wake up with after my vivid dreams.
Ann: Are you resilient enough to change as your story progresses?
Katrina: I canâ€™t stay the same. I mean my life is constantly changing. The first major change took place when I had my accident. Now, every day is a brand-new turning point on the path we call life. I need to change and grow in order to solve this mystery. I may be stuck in the hospital, but Iâ€™m not stuck in that one room. Write my story to find out how much I change and see the changes that take place in the characters around me.
Ann: One final question, and this might sound silly, but here goes. What would you think if you could see me now?
Katrina: God gave you the ability to create me as a character when he laid my story on your heart. I see you in the same way you see me in your head. When I stand beside you and tap my toe impatiently, that means that Iâ€™m impatient for you to share my heroâ€™s journey. Thank you for that. I love having these chats, but Iâ€™ve got a mystery to solve. Follow me as I walk these narrow halls and wide-open spaces to hunt for the truth.
Iâ€™d like to thank Katrina Dobson for stopping by the blog to have an enlightening conversation with me. Stay tuned, for youâ€™ll meet the entire cast of Inner Vision characters in the weeks ahead. Until next time, happy reading and God bless.
