BITE ME Dream Cast

Something I have done for all of my books is to try and create a visual of the cast of characters. This is the dream cast for the SNI for NaNoWriMo and is very much a rough draft - as I learn more about the characters through writing them - they often change. The other thing that WILL change are the names of my characters.

This is Leigh (Anna Sophia Robb) - my 16 year old MC, the youngest of five girls. She is tough, independent, snarky, but desperately looking to fit in somewhere. The M&M - tough candy shell, soft yummy chocolate center.


This is Katheryne (Lucy Hale), the oldest sister. Katheryne is 22 years old and the leader in every sense. She is focused on their task, dedicated and serious.

Natalie, (Demi Lovato) the twin sister to Sophia. Natalie and Sophia are 20 years old and have a strong bond. Natalie is athletic, strong, dark and powerful.

Sophia, Natalie's twin. Sophia is incredibly sensitive, caring and empathetic. She has the strongest gift and has been in love since she was 15 - but learned the secret at 16.

Elyse (Erin Sanders) is 18 and is the light of the family. She is joyful, and unburdened by her responsibilities. She is often the intermediary between Leigh and her sisters.

Elyse's LI (Josh Hutcherson)

Natalie's best friend (Stephen Sraight)

Sophia's LI (William Mosely)

Katheryne's LI (Mark Salling)

(Alex Davalo) Leader of the "created"

Yep. I'm doing it. After drooling at the thought last year, I decided I really wanted to give it a shot this year. It doesn't hurt that I have a full on shiny new idea (SNI) that was just demanding to be written.

So, Here is the SNI...

Young Leigh never felt she fit in her own family; she’s small, pale and plain while her four older sisters are tall, tan and gorgeous. She hopes someday she will be just like them, but the day her fangs come in proves she never really will. Her sisters received the keys to the family car and a beautiful crystal pendant when they turned sixteen; Leigh gets a thirst for blood and the truth about her real inheritance.

Leigh is part of a long line of vampires, created in an unusual way – she was born one. Now that she has begun turning, she discovers the sisters she resents have a secret of their own. They are her protectors until she turns eighteen and her full strength realized.

Now Leigh will have to trust her sisters with her secret and her life.

Kick off is tomorrow.... I can't wait to start writing!
