The characters for Wings of An Angel were so fun to create and write!
I wanted Drake Miller to have a sort of goofball appeal…
Bug Hall (from Little Rascals fame) was so perfect. I could totally see him shaping the minds of Faraday’s young students.
And winning Angela Carol’s heart, too!
Even if she left him more than a bit perplexed at times.
For Angela, I wanted someone lovely, yet who was strong enough to weather the storms my character has endured.
Brooke Nevin seemed like the perfect choice for Angela.
I could easily envision her as a woman wounded by her past, but trying to stay positive and upbeat for her son.
And as a great veterinarian!
Max Charles is how I envision Nick – a kid full of pluck and spunk who loves his mom and wants a dad for Christmas.
And we can’t forget Shep.
The song I listened to while I was writing the story is Tennessee Christmas by Steve Wariner, an oldie but a goodie and so perfect for Angela!
