Book Talk/Character Talk

Describe your book in one word:
Twisted Fairtales. Oh, you said one word? Can I just use twisted? That works too LOL J
Cast your heroine:
Greta is a seventeen year old kick-ass warrior chick who manages to be both strong and vulnerable at the same time. That last part ticks her off royally and she does her damndest not to let anyone else see. I think the perfect movie star to play that role would probably be Nina Dobrev from Vampire Diaries. (But you have to be able to visualize her as a blonde)
Cast your hero:
Issac is the Goblin King. ‘Nuff said. Okay, we could say a little more. He’s a big, self-centered, muscle-bound jerk with an entitlement complex a mile wide in fact. But he also has these hidden depths that he likes to use to throw Greta off balance and keep her from making up her mind about him one way or another. I imagine him being played by Patrick John Flueger
Favorite line by your heroine:
“You’re deluding yourself if you think you can know who I am or what I want from spying on me in my dreams. Therein lies a realm of fantasy, and while it’s an interesting place to visit every once in a while, we both have to live in the real world, don’t we?”
Favorite line by your hero:
“I’m in your mind, getting to know every part of you. You can put up walls, but sooner or later I’ll break down every last one. There won’t be any secret you can keep or any part of you I don’t know…Intimately.”
Choose an on-screen kiss that best illustrates the intensity between these two characters:
I always think of the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Not so much because of who the actors were, or what the characters did (they played spies for opposing factions of government), but because those characters had some SERIOUS volatility between them. Bitter enemies out to kill each other…but oh man, when they came together that energy went white hot in a flash!
Why do you write in the genre you write?:
Because this is what comes best and most naturally to me!
What other genres would you consider and why?:
I’ve also written in paranormal romance, steampunk, horror, contemporary…under my alternate persona…but I love fantasy the best!
Can you give us a hint of something else you’re working on?:
I’m always working on more Greta, and I actually hope to have a novella for my readers sometime in the early fall, just in time for Greta’s release in November!
Hey, Melissa! Thanks so much for having me as a visitor, darlin’! Ask me anything else and I’ll be around to answer questions J
