And here is M.J. Bell’s Dream Cast –
For Deston and Margaux – since these two are teenagers, I’d like to have fresh new actor/actress play them and own them, like the Harry Potter cast did.
Oseron – (Deston’s father) Josh Holloway without a doubt!! He’s the reason I gave Deston a dimple — I just love Josh’s. (and luckily Oseron has a dimple too!)
Joliet – (Deston’s Mother) Evangline Lilly
Lilika – Molly Quinn
Keir – Orlando Bloom
Zumwald – Hugh Jackman (my friend made me promise if I ever got this made into a movie I would put Hugh Jackman in it!)
And here is the playlist M.J. Bell listened to while writing The Chronicles of the Secret Prince Series!
Soft adult contemporary, Celtic and classical music is what I typically listen to when writing. Movie soundtracks are always a favorite for me, as long as they are just instrumentals–if the songs have words, I want to sing along and it distracts me. Some of my favorite CDs to listen to are:
Somewhere in Time soundtrack
Cirque Du Soleil – Mystere
Harry Potter soundtrack
