If any of you have seen my Pinterest board, you know that I was imagining this woman when I wrote Mya's character:
So, kind of close! They are both beautiful women for sure and really capture the look I was going for in Mya. It was the eyes that drew me, really, and the strength in the face. Love that!
And if I were to cast Commander Jake Williams, I would have chosen this man:
I don't know his name, but he was so close to how I imagined Jake. The only difference was Jake's eyes were blue.
Sometimes it's fun to refer to pictures when I'm writing to get the looks right for a character. Do you ever imagine certain actors or people as a character in a book? I do it all the time and not only for my own books!
