I always thought it fun to see who author's picture for their characters. Even more fun is to see who readers picture for the characters. Of course I didn't have specific movie stars or famous people picked out before I began writing Juniper's Princess, but when I thought about it these are who I picked, so here I go...
Dani: Zooey Deschanel
She is the perfect Dani, funny, sweet, but still able to hold her own.
Jaiden: Zac Efron
All I can say is yummy! He is tall, dark, handsome, and has the brooding mysterious down perfect! Did you see The Lucky One?
Zach: Ryan Reynolds
Fun, sweet, tall another yummy. He can do the thoughtful honest guy wonderfully!
Cord: Emma Stone
Hilarious, kick butt, and can totally hold her own on a road tip of guys. She would totally keep us laughing as I feel Cordelia does.
Trev: Chris Hemsworth
*sigh* another yummy man. He is so perfect for Trev! He is tall, dangerous though he thinks about his leading woman, can we all say Thor?
Meikal: Russell Crowe
I actually really like Russell Crowe, but when I picture Meikal Russell Crowe has that dark look where he could easily be the villain.
Jane: Teresa Palmer
She has the soft feminine look, but can totally kick but if needed. I feel like she has the perfect look for Jane.
I know that if each were to be actually cast to play a role in a JP Movie adaptation, some would have to change hair color slightly to completely match up with the character as I have described them, but for the most part these are the pick...
I would love to see who readers pick for each character I have had a few people I know mention a specific actor, but usually it is vague.
When I first wrote the book I used names of people I know to name the characters, then I had to give them their own look and attitude, now I am picturing the above people, what fun reading is! So have some fun, for those of you who have read JP, tell me who you would pick!
Daniah is different, she always has been and now her dreams and visions of the future are increasing, she knows her life is changing. She just doesn't know by how much...
Jaiden is different, but he knows why and he knows his responsibilities. He must find the saviour of his race, the angel human half-breeds who are fighting a war for humanity's souls. If he can't convince Daniah she is more than just a little different - she is the princess of their people - they are all going to die.
Unfortunately Daniah doesn't have many reasons to trust Jadien, especially when he is caught in a web of his own lies.
In a world where half-breed angels walk among us, fighting an evil for our souls, Daniah must find the strength to become the princess we all need.
I look at him as he leans back and our eyes lock, and I feel a shiver run all through my body. I can’t seem to remember what he just said to me, I can’t think of what I am doing or where I am. How is this happening? When I look into his startling bright green eyes, my mind stops working. A picture of a woman I don’t know flashes in front of my eyes; I have definitely seen this woman before, but where? I start to feel very weary and shaky; thank goodness I’m sitting down, I think to myself. Everything else starts to fade away. All I can see is his eyes. I hear a male voice say something harshly that I can’t understand, then everything goes black.

Actually Chelsea lives in the United States in Nebraska, where she was born and raised, with her black lab Daisey, who hasn’t spoken actual words to her but she is pretty sure Daisey understands her. She is yet to meet her prince charming, though she is quite sure he is out there. Chelsea enjoys working in a library as well as a cosmetologist. She is an avid reader and writing has always been her passion. Juniper’s Princess is her first novel, set to be released soon, and she is working on her next book now.
