I write pure escapism, total fantasy; sexy, steamy, sometimes quite dark romance. And sometimes with more than a nod to my northern English roots.
Thank you for joining me, now kick off your shoes, grab a coffee, & join me in my world of random ramblings about life, movies, books - & more than likely something about my latest TV addiction...
Fantasy Cast Friday - 'Spirited Away' by Angela Campbell
It's been a while since we've had a Fantasy Cast Friday here on my blog, but today I'm really happy to have the fabulous Angela Campbell - another fellow HarperImpulse author - join me to share her dream cast for her brand new book Spirited Away.
Read on to find out more about Angela, and check out just who she'd have in her ideal Fantasy Cast...
Campbell read her first romance novel at 16 and immediately attempted to write
one, too. Many attempts (and a couple of decades) later, she finally published
her first novel. A mild-mannered newspaper reporter with more than 15 years
experience as a general assignment reporter, features editor and graphic
designer, she has also worked as a production assistant in TV and film. Learn

of all, thanks for having me today, Michelle! I have to admit, I didn’t have
anyone particular in mind when I was writing these characters, although looking
back, I drew from a handful of actresses and actors to create my characters of
Spider and Noah in Spirited Away. For my computer hacker heroine Spider, I think
I’d have to single out Felicia Day, Karen Gillan, Ashley Rickards and Anna
Kendrick. But none of them alone really embody what this quirky, sassy, awesome
gal equates to in my head. But if you mix them all up, one actress actually
comes to mind. Emma Stone.
So yes, I think if I had to pick one actress, it
would be Emma Stone to play Spider. Because Spider is funny, sarcastic and all-at-once
lovable, Emma would probably nail her.
is a little tougher for me. When I first started writing him, I pictured Jamie
Dornan from his “Once Upon a Time” days, then switched to Chris Evans because,
OMG, he’s awesome as “Captain America,” but when I was finishing the book, I
saw “Lone Survivor” and remembered how much I loved Taylor Kitsch and he just
seemed to stick in my mind as Noah from that point on.
So I think I would cast
Taylor Kitsch as Noah because, hello, total hottie.
Noah is dark, mysterious,
and looks a little bit dangerous. Yep, I think Taylor would do him justice.
What do you think?
Angela, thank you so much for a fantastic Fantasy Cast! There's just something about Taylor Kitsch... good choice!
I'm so pleased you were able to stop by today, and I wish you loads of success with Spirited Away.
