I started a new book yesterday, the 6th in the Mirabelle Island series, and you know me. Had to find pictures of my hero and heroine for inspiration. Had fun looking through pictures of faces that seemed to match my characters.
My heroine, Grace, grew up on Mirabelle. Her father was the island pastor, a mild-mannered man, but she never got along with her mother. After a troubled period as a teenager , she rebelled and left the island to become a world famous model. After a tragic car accident that led to her divorce, she's back on the island, licking her wounds. I know what Grace looks like ... Gisele Bundchen ...
Gisele is married to New England's Patriot quarterback, Tom Brady, but he doesn't fit my hero. Not exactly sure who does, so help me out here.
Hero, Sean, is the relatively new doctor on the island. He comes from a high-pressure family of doctors - father is a neurosurgeon, sister a stem-cell researcher and brother a renowned cardiologist. Sean rebelled by becoming an ER doc in LA and after burning out, he moves to Mirabelle. Having too much time on his hands, he buys the island stable and carriage operation, and he loves working with the horses.
Naturally, my thoughts traveled to actors who have played doctors on TV.
Does Sean sound like Matthew Fox?
Or ... Eric Dane?
And Anna D got me wondering ... what about Leonardo????
Decisions. Decisions. Who looks like he fits with Gisele?
