My inspiration

Here is my inspiration for my current WIP.  Once I had
him in mind, it was easy to develop a story around him!  If you're an author, who is your current inspiration and if you're a reader, who is your favorite hero/heroine?

  1. Ahem....that's MY boyfriend, tyvm.
    pfft.

    But beyond that, I loooooove looking around the internet for inspiration. It can be a model in a magazine or a famous person.

    Currently, my inspiration is a model named Ingo Diers. YUM! lol

  4. Ooh...good one Deena! How fitting that his name was Angel! Hmm...maybe you should have one of your angels get turned into a vampire!

  7. I have pictures on my hero and heroine in a notebook with their character notes. I love searching images for the "look" I imagine, because once I have a visual, I start thinking of more facets to their personalities.

    Thanks for the Twitter follow! Looking forward to your tweets there and posts here! Hope you're having a Happy Easter weekend!!

  10. @serena, I know what you mean about Taylor Kitsch! I've had a crush on him since Friday Night Lights! Lol, he was my inspiration for Blood on the Moon (coming out in August!!!). He was my Lucas, and every time I needed to write a sexy smoldering look, I pulled up a pic of Tay. He doesn't actually look like Lucas (my MC) but he's got the impossibly adorable bad-boy good looks that Lucas has...in my head, anyway. lol

  13. Did you ever see the show Moonlight on The CW it only lasted one season but this Alex O'Laughlin was a vampire named Mick...LOVE!! No matter what i read i almost always picture Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester) from the show Supernatural, nobody does for me like he does he's so DREAMY ;)

  14. Yes I loved Moonlight! Watched the rerun on SyFy. I couldn't believe that they took it off the air! I agree about Jared. I'm a Supernatural fan too! Oh and while we're on the topic of paranormal shows, Ian Somerhalder on Vampire Diaries is a keeper!

  15. Oh I LOVE this man! And he's even better with that Irish surname! I never miss an episode of Hawaii 5-O!
