Jackie Starke asked Kristin Hannah:

Hi Kristin! The first book of yours I ever read was Summer House, which I loved so much, you instantly became one of my favorite authors & I have read every one of your books since. I was wondering which one of your characters do you identify with the most, and whether or not you have a favorite?

Kristin Hannah Thanks so much, Jackie! What an interesting question. Hmmm... Which character do I most identify with? It's hard to say because there is a part of me in every heroine I write, but none of them are "mostly" me. I guess if pressed, I would say that I identify most with Jolene from Home Front. I am a long long way from a kickass heroine, but I'm a working mom who sometimes takes on too much and has trouble relinquishing control. I would say that my favorite character is still little Alice from Magic Hour. She just stole my heart.
