Blake Shelton as Benji

Every author has a visual image of her characters in her head. If she finds the right words, her readers will see whom she sees, too.

Okay, that's a perfect world. If books did it all, no one would ever go to the movies.

So, here's a shortcut, a cheat if you will. Blake Shelton was my inspiration for Benji, THE GREAT BIG FAIRY. Oh, and if you didn't already know, fairies are time travelers.

I needed someone tall, blue-eyed, red haired, and with dimples. Well, Blake Shelton is three out four...or four out of four if a box of Nice 'N Easy is thrown in. And my Benji loves to sing. Would that make Blake a five out of four?

Buy or borrow THE GREAT BIG FAIRY on Amazon and spend time with the good humored, gorgeous hunk of male, Benji MacKay, the 6'7" former wrestler and reluctant porn star as he seeks a way to return to the 18th century. And find out what happens once he's there and why it is so important he come back to the 21st century.

Thanks for looking,
