Character Interview with Julia Carson of Charlene Whitman's Wyoming Tryst

Our guest character today is Julia Carson from Charlene Whitman's WYOMING TRYST. Enjoy the interview!

What is your name?

Julia Carson

What do you look like?

I’m young—sixteen—and I have pale skin, light hair, and freckles (which I’m not fond of). I’m also tall for a girl and that makes me self-conscious.

You come face to face with your worse enemy. How do you react?

I do come face-to-face with my worst enemy. He’s the sheriff of Laramie, and he throws me in the state penitentiary because he hates my father, Lester Carson, a rich cattle rancher. He wants me dead and almost succeeds in killing me. But my love, Robert, and the good doctor, Tuttle, make a way—a dangerous way—to get me out of the prison.

Do you have any phobias? What are they and how intense are they? How have they impacted your life?

I don’t have phobias but I have severe asthma, which almost kills me a couple of times. But I can’t complain. It’s because of my asthma that I fell in love with Robert.

What scares you?

Thinking Robert has abandoned me.

How would your parents describe you?

Naïve and too young to know what’s best for me.

Are you faith-oriented? 

Yes, if I didn’t have my faith in God, I would never get through this harrowing ordeal.

Two ranching tycoons. A decades-old feud. A sheriff bent on ridding the town of lawlessness . . .
In the midst of the trouble brewing in Laramie City in 1878, Julia Carson yearns to be free of her parents’ smothering and wonders whether she’ll ever find a man worthy to love in such a violent town rife with outlaws.
But when Robert Morrison sneaks onto her ranch the night of her sixteenth birthday party, Cupid shoots his arrows straight and true. Aware that their courtship would be anathema to their fathers, who are sworn enemies, Robert and Julia arrange a tryst.
Yet, their clandestine dalliance does not go unnoticed, and forces seek to destroy what little hope their romance has to bloom. The star-crossed lovers face heartache and danger as violence erupts. When all hope is lost, Joseph Tuttle, the new doctor at the penitentiary, is given a letter and a glass vial from Cheyenne medicine woman Sarah Banks.
The way of escape poses deadly dangers, but it is the only way for Robert and Julia to be together. It will take the greatest measure of faith and courage to come through unscathed, but love always conquers fear.
