What is your name?
Detective Katherine "Katie" Scott and my latest cold case is Pretty Broken Dolls.
What do you look like?
I'm five foot seven, brown hair, brown eyes, and have an athletic build. I wish that I was curvier.
Where are you today and what are you doing?
I'm following up on leads at a military K9 training facility regarding the homicides in Pretty Broken Dolls.
Describe the outside of your home.
It's a yellow farmhouse with white trim that my dad built. There's even a porch with a swing that I often find myself in when I've had a bad day.
You come face to face with your worse enemy. How do you react?
Being a police detective and former military K9 handler, I've come face to face with too many enemies in my short lifetime. I'm ready for anything—no matter what.
You keep a photo album of memories from your lifetime. If you could only keep one photo, which one would that be?
It would be a photo of me and my parents when I was twelve years old. It was happy times before they were brutally taken from me in an auto accident.
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
Both. But I prefer to be a night owl.
A police officer stops you for a minor violation. What violation is that and how do you react?
It would be speeding. I would find it amusing because no doubt I would know the officer. We would have a good laugh. He would caution me to slow down and I would be on my way.
What is your favorite piece of clothing?
A well-worn pair of jeans.
Do you have any phobias? What are they and how intense are they? How have they impacted your life?
I wouldn't say phobia, but I suffer from PTSD. I suffer every day, some days better than others, but I manage.
How do you feel about mortality?
It's something I don't think about. But I know in the back of my mind that doing my job could cause my death.
What scares you?
Not being able to find the killer and they claim another victim.
What’s the last thing you do before you go to bed at night?
I spend some quiet time and thank the Lord for everything I have and the people in my life.
Who is your best friend?
My K9 Cisco.
Are you married or in a relationship?
I'm engaged to be married to my childhood friend.
You just woke up to find that war has been declared. What’s the first thing you would do?
Gather my wits. And then gather everything I need to protect my community and get to work.
When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I wanted to be a police officer. As luck would have it, I got my wish.
