#ManCandyMonday Inspiration for Christopher from THE CLAIMED

So we’re lucky to have some Man Candy on the cover for THE CLAIMED and a lot of you have been asking who is the inspiration for the dark and very sexy Shadow Hunter hero Christopher Sombrosa.

I have to say the inspiration was a mix of two actors, Eddie Cibrian and D.J. Cotrona. This is a picture of Eddie looking rather dark and dangerous, just as I picture Christopher when he’s angry and ready to blast someone with one of his Hunter power orbs.

But Christopher also has a lighter side and for that boyish part of him, D.J. Cotrona was the inspiration. D.J. played a detective on the now cancelled Detroit 1-8-7. Shame since it was a fine show! But fans of D.J. will soon see him in GI JOE: RETALIATION with two other pieces of Man Candy, namely The Rock and Bruce Willis! Can’t wait.

So here’s a picture of DJ playing FLINT in the movie. Sexy! Hope you enjoyed today’s Man Candy Monday and another behind the scenes look at THE CLAIMED.

Casting Call!

A funny thing happened on the way to my reboot of THE CALLING series.

To be sure that I had everything just right for you, I spent big chunks of the last week re-reading DARKNESS CALLS, DEATH CALLS and some of the later books in the series. Still have to go back and read the one that is tentatively titled VENGEANCE CALLS to make sure I’ve got the timeline right for you.

So what was the funny thing? Oh man, how I have missed this world and all these old friends. It only served to whet my appetite for starting the next Diana and Ryder book!!

Speaking of Ryder, today’s Guilty Pleasure Monday is a casting call. Ryder is dark, delicious and deadly and the picture above is how I had imagined him, but I’m wondering who I would cast if I were going to do a movie.

To me Ryder is kind of a blend of Clive Owen, Pierce Brosnan and Eddie Cibrian. Maybe with a little Joe Manganiello thrown in.

How do you picture sexy Southern vampire Ryder Latimer? Who would you cast in the movie?
