I'm excited to have Trisha Wolfe, author of the young adult steampunk novel, Destiny's Fire here with us today talking about her perfect dream cast.
Please give a warm welcome to Trisha.
Finding the perfect cast
for your characters is a daunting task. I’ve spent so much time with these
guys, and when I wrote the story, I definitely had their images seared into my
mind. So when you’re seeking the perfect person to replace what you have
branded in your brain, it’s not easy. But I believe these guys right here come
Chad Michael is a
nearly perfect match for Jace. His squinty-eyed glare and pouty lips is just
how I envision Jace’s “look”.
Chase Crawford. Oh,
baby, oh. Put some red eyes on him and we have a close match for Reese.
Especially the way his face lights up when he smiles. That’s how I picture him when
he looks into Dez’s eyes. And he can look pretty scary when he’s all mean like.
Dez was really hard to
find. I’m still not sure Emma Roberts is the perfect match. I don’t want Dez to
be a model, and Emma has that girl next door appeal. Dez to me is beautiful,
but not in that “perfect” plastic way. She just has naturalness about her, a
freshness. So I think Emma comes pretty close.
Would love to hear your
thoughts! Who do you think would make the perfect cast? I love that people can
read the same book, take in the author’s description, and come away with
completely different images in their mind. Sometimes I ignore the description
altogether and dream up my own. That’s the amazing thing about books. It
becomes your world and your characters.

It's the year 2040,
and sixteen-year-old Dez Harkly is one of the last of her kind--part of a
nearly extinct race of shape-shifters descended from guardians to the Egyptian
pharaohs. Her home and her secret are threatened when the Council lowers the
barrier, allowing the enemy race to enter the Shythe haven.
As the Narcolym airships approach, Dez and her friends rebel against their
Council and secretly train for battle. Not only is Dez wary of war and her
growing affection for her best friend Jace, but she fears the change her
birthday will bring. When Dez's newfound power rockets out of control, it's a
Narcolym who could change her fate… if she can trust him.
Dez's guarded world crumbles when she discovers why the Narcos have really come
to Haven Falls, and she's forced to choose between the race who raised her and
the enemy she's feared her whole life.
