Tell us about the faerie or faeries in your book.
ArÃºn is my pale, pointy-eared Fae hunk. Thanks to a prophecy from his home realm, heâs been waiting for my fallen angel, Woe, to show up in New York City. The winged warrior makes a habit of saving Woe from danger, but she canât decide whether she likes him or not.
What inspired your book?
Noir. The classic noir movies. The movies themselves were black and white, but every decision was a gray. I wanted to write a broken heroine. I think she more accurately reflects reality. After that, it became a City of Angels meets The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. I loved both of those concepts.
Who would you cast for the main characters in your book?
Sheâs almost too baby-faced, but I loved Hailee Steinfeld in True Grit. I think sheâd be great in stand-offs with Father Jason and when she tells ArÃºn what she thinks. She has just the right amount of vulnerability and spunk to play Woe, my fallen angel.
Chris Hemsworth would make a fantastic ArÃºn. Heâd have to bleach his hair white and wear contacts that make his eyes silver, but I think he could pull off the pointed ears. And heâd for sure be able to pull off the line, âShirtless in Central Park like he owned the place.â
As far as Jason, the priest in my story, Iâd probably pick a bearded Gerard Butler. Heâs such a versatile actor. I mean anybody that can be King Leonidas can do my team-leader-priest, right?
