I just realized I never shared my character inspiration for Dream of Her Heart!
So, when I was thinking about creating these two characters, I had fairly detailed ideas of how I wanted them to look (beyond what you see on the cover).
I pictured Zane West as someone rugged, handsome, charming, with a boyish appeal.
The moment I saw Heath Hutchins, I knew he’d make a perfect Zane.
Daring World War II pilot? Check.
Good-looking country boy? Check.
Eyes and a smile that could make girls swoon? Check and check!
From past stories in this series, we knew Billie Brighton is petite, blonde, and feisty.
Carrie Underwood seemed like a perfect choice to for Billie!
From her sweet smile to the spunk that just radiates from her, I couldn’t think of anyone better to inspire Billie’s character.
I could so picture her giving Zane (or the boys in the hospital) this look.
And my musical inspiration came from the awesome Michael Bublé, singing a vintage tune… The Very Thought of You.
