An Unforgettable Movie

1 Comment

So who would I cast in a movie based on one of my books? Funny you should ask, because this question was posed to me recently by someone at Romantic Times Magazine who was writing an article about books they’d like to see made into movies. She said she thought Unforgettable Summer would make a great movie an guess what? I think I agree with her :).

I’m famous. You’ll have to trust me since you probably can’t read this.

I had a little trouble casting my hero from that book, Ty Butler. A world champ surfer with a casual air, a wicked sense of humour and a cheeky smile…it took me a while to find the right guy, but then I found him.

Eric Christian OlsenEric Christian Olsen plays Deeks in NCIS LA and I love his silly sense of humor and his scruffy face and hair and his casual athleticism. THIS guy could play Ty (if he could pull off the Aussie accent of course. Perhaps I’d have to help :)).

And as for Summer I picked Melanie Vallejo, and Australian actress of part fillipino descent who is perfect to play her.

SummerI think they’d go nicely together. What do you think?

Catching the one that got away could be the ultimate ride

Wild Crush, Book 1

Champion surfer Ty Butler is living the dream—a great career, a globe-trotting lifestyle, and his pick of women. Then a visit to his hometown forces him to face Summer Campbell.

A decade on, she still gives him an adrenaline rush to beat the biggest waves. She’s also as unavailable as ever, or so he thinks. When the truth comes out, Ty decides it’s time to lay old ghosts to rest—and lay Summer flat out in bed.

Ten years ago Summer committed the ultimate sin by falling for her sister’s boyfriend. She rejected Ty’s love out of duty, even marrying another man in an attempt to move on. An attempt that failed. She never forgot Ty—or the havoc loving him wreaked in her life.

Her body wants to finish what they started long ago. Her head tells her she can indulge in a wicked affair with no regrets. But when the pro-surfing tour inevitably calls him away, her heart could crumble like a sandcastle beneath his feet.

Warning: Book contains hot sex with a hot surfer. Might warm your heart and heat up a few other parts, as well. Might even inspire you to chuck it all in and chase the endless summer.

Cheers,

I Can’t Think Of Anything To Go With ‘Friday’ Friday

I know, I know. The subject is lame, but I have the cold from hell and my muse refuses to come play with me when I’m a snot monster, so I Can’t Think Of Anything To Go With ‘Friday’ Friday is what you’re getting.

Well, what you’re actually getting is a question. And I want an honest answer.

If “they” could make a movie of any book you’ve read (doesn’t have to be a romance), what would the book be and who would be the stars?

Mine?

Undead and Unwed, by MaryJanice Davidson. Starring Gwyneth Paltrow as Queen Betsy and the deliciously brooding Clive Owen as Eric Sinclair.

Betsy Taylor turns 30, gets laid off, is killed by an SUV and wakes up dead all in the same week. The vampire community is convinced she’s their prophesied Queen. But she’s not having any of it—she’s got shoes to buy! And now the undead world is being turned upside-down by a Bela Lugosi throwback and her subjects expect her to take care of it! Why didn’t she read the handbook? But her would-be consort, Eric Sinclair, is (annoyingly) ever-present. If only he wasn’t so tall, dark, gorgeous…and undead.
