us about the faerie or faeries in your book.
is my pale, pointy-eared Fae hunk. Thanks to a prophecy from his home
realm, he’s been waiting for my fallen angel, Woe, to show up in
New York City. The winged warrior makes a habit of saving Woe from
danger, but she can’t decide whether she likes him or not.
The classic noir movies. The movies themselves were black and white,
but every decision was a gray. I wanted to write a broken heroine. I
think she more accurately reflects reality. After that, it became a
City of Angels meets The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I loved
both of those concepts.
would you cast for the main characters in your book?
almost too baby-faced, but I loved Hailee Steinfeld in True Grit. I
think she’d be great in stand-offs with Father Jason and when she
tells Arún what she thinks. She has just the right mount of
vulnerability and spunk to play Woe, my fallen angel.
Hemsworth would make a fantastic Arún. He’d have to bleach his
hair white and wear contacts that make his eyes silver, but I think
he could pull off the pointed ears. And he’d for sure be able to
pull off the line, “Shirtless in Central Park like he owned the place.”
far as Jason, the priest in my story, I’d probably pick a bearded Gerard Butler. He’s such a versatile actor. I mean anybody that can be King Leonidas can do my team-leader-priest, right?
