An Interview With Jennifer Bombard

Please welcome wife, mom of three, and former firefighter Jennifer Bombard to Unwritten! She is one of the lucky 20,000TH Hit Giveaway interview winners, so I get to grill her about whatever I want. Bwahahahaha! *cough*

Let's get down to business. Jennifer, tell us a little about yourself. Where are you from, what are your hobbies, and how's the family?

I am from Baldwinsville, New York and am an at home mom right now. I have Multiple sclerosis and it got bad so haven't worked in awhile. My kids are doing great Michael is in 6th grade and Josaphine is in 8th. My Hubby Rob is my best friend, I am very lucky I met him. Hobbies are reading, doing stuff with kids and hubby, facebook and video games.

I haven't spoken to many firefighters, especially female ones. What got you interested in such a noble, yet dangerous profession?

I was a volunteer Fire fighter from Feb 1989 til sept 2000 when I had my kids. I loved being a interior fire fighter and helping people. I think its in my blood, my grandfather was a fire fighter to. I did everything fought fires, drove trucks, rescue calls and dragged hose it was hard but I felt like i belonged there.

On the same note, do you have any favorite firefighter-themed books and/or films?

Movies I have about fire fighters BackDraft and books I have a couple love stories but I cant find them sorry I have so many books.(shock lol) 

As most people who get interviewed here know, I like to research my subjects before I question them. On your Facebook profile, it says you're into wicca and anything ancient Egyptian. How did these two interests come about, and how do you reflect those interests in your everyday life?

 I always been interested in wicca but got more in to it when I found out I had MS, stones to help symptoms and I do practice some one it. About ancient Egyptian I love to watch history on it anything and everything. I am a history freak lol. loved the movies The Mummy, The Mummy Returns etc. I had a Cartouche necklace made with my kids names in it, I wear it all the time.

How's about a random question? This one comes from one of my daughters' favorite books, Would You Rather...? Radically Repulsive. Choose ONE:
Would you terrified of triangles or of the number 4?
 I think terrified of the number 4.

Since you were an active participant in the 20,000TH Hit Giveaway, I'll assume you're a book-lover. So, here's a fun activity: Grab one of your favorite books, turn to chapter 1, and give us the very first line. Also, list the title and author.

My fav book line "Its not every day you see a ghost." H.P. Mallory, Fire Burn and Cauldron Bubble

Thanks very much for visiting Unwritten, Jennifer! I hope you have a wonderful holiday season.
