Good morning!

So, I’ve been trying to find more ways to entertain my lovely readers (all… two of you. 😉 ) and thought I might add in a Fangirl Friday. As most of you know, I like to have visual inspiration for my characters. I’ve had quite  few over the years now and I thought it might be fun to share them with you. I tend to get just a WEE bit obsessed with them. LOL So, introducing… Fangirl Friday.

For the first Fangirl Friday, I’d like to introduce you to someone you already know. XD I actually struggled with this guy because when I first created the character he ended up being my dream cast for, I’d had  firm idea in my head of what he looked like. Because he started as a character from an anime. Teman, the main character in my first novel, Choices, began life as Kamizuki Izumo from Naruto.Izumo_Kamizuki

I’ve made no scecret of the fact that I started my writing life (well, the latest portion of it, anyway) in fanfiction. I fell in love with the world Masashi Kishimoto made and I had a lot of fun playing with his characters and world. So, Teman started out as Izumo, but he very quickly became his own person. So it was a little tough to find someone that fit him exactly. I hemmed and hawed and went over a lot of people before I finally found the one that fit.Teman - Orlando Bloom (5)Yeah, maybe a little easy and someone I *should* have thought of first, but I have spent a lot of time thinking of him as an elf with long blond hair. Quite a difference from my brown-haired middle-eastern gypsy. Still, he works, doesn’t he?

And just for a bit more eye candy:

Teman - Orlando Bloom (9)

Does he get sexier?
