Guest blog with Kim Carmichael

A Combination of The Best…

As a writer I get asked all the time what my characters look like, especially my heroes.  I am honestly not one of those writers who goes around and finds pictures of then writes descriptions from those images.  I usually just think about hair color and eye color and if they are a bad boy or a business man, and then I put it all together.  By the time I am done, I have an excellent visualization in my head, but if someone asked me who they looked like I couldn't really name anyone except that hero.

So tonight, as I was contemplating my next hero I am writing for an anthology story, I wrote down my top 5 five famous people, who in my dream world could play some of my heroes….

Josh Holloway – He as the bad boy in Lost – I am not going to lie, if Josh Holloway would ever want to play any of my heroes, the job is his.  He is an excellent bad boy as well as party boy.  Hell, slap a tie on him, and he's an excellent businessman.  Maybe this blog only needs one entry, and all heroes should look like Josh Holloway.

Let's just all look for a moment…

Okay, I feel better.  Now I'll move on.

Trent Reznor – He's bad, he's tortured, he's a chameleon.  I love him in this picture, and he is aging great!! 

Morrissey – When he was with The Smiths.  I think I just like tortured souls.  I love Morrissey.  His music defined me in a lot of ways and he is just beautiful during this time.

Cary Elwes – When he was in the Princess Bride, and though he got a little puffy he's looking good again.

Ben Lewis – Ok this one is really out there, but I am a huge Phantom fan and he played the lead in Love Never Dies (the hated sequel that I loved).  But I loved his Phantom and I love how tall he is and his voice makes me cry.  So there, he's awesome.

Honorable mentions to:

Andrew McCarthy – Now!  I loved him back in the day, but he is fine today as well, and a published Travel Author.  WTG!

And James Spader - There is just something about James Spader that makes me swoon.
