Dream Cast for Blind Spot

Oh my gosh, a dream cast! That would be awesome to have Blind Spot made into a movie, but the task of casting I think would be difficult for me. When I write, I tend to avoid overly specific physical descriptions because I like readers to envision the characters on their own. That being said. . . I do have an idea of who I would love to see play my characters!

Roswell ‘Roz’ Hart – I like Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect, Twilight) for Roz. Okay, so she doesn’t have green eyes, but there are contacts for that!

Tricia Farni – I think Ashley Benson (Pretty Little Liars) could muster up that perfect mix of mean and messed up to play Tricia.

Greg Martin – No, he’s not super tall, but other than that, I think Adam Brody (O.C., Land of Woman) is the perfect candidate to play Greg

Jonathon Webb – Throw a hockey jersey on Joshua Bowman (Revenge) and he’s a definite possibility to play Jonathon!

Mr. Dellian –This was tough for me, but I think Johnny Galecki (Big Bang Theory) could totally pull off the creepy, pretentious teacher.

There’s none so blind as they that won’t see.

Seventeen-year-old Tricia Farni’s body floated to the surface of Alaska’s Birch River six months after the night she disappeared. The night Roz Hart had a fight with her. The night Roz can’t remember. Roz, who struggles with macular degeneration, is used to assembling fragments to make sense of the world around her. But this time it’s her memory that needs piecing together—to clear her name . . . to find a murderer.

This unflinchingly emotional novel is written in the powerful first-person voice of a legally blind teen who just wants to be like everyone else.
