I’m so excited and very lucky to have Karina Kantas, author of Illusional Reality an Adult Romantic Fantasy, join me on my blog today.
Hi Karina, thank you for agreeing to be my guest.
If you could pick any actor/actress to play your lead characters, who would you pick and why?
Well I wrote Illusional Reality many years ago. So the actors I picked for the film (as every author does) Thya was going to be played by Cameron Diaz, Alkazar by Ralph Fines Darthorn by Antonio Banderas and Kovon was Jonathan Rhys Meyers.
Great cast! I would totally go see a movie starring Cameron Diaz, Ralph Fines, and Antonio Banderas!!!
Tell us a little about your lead characters and why you think your readers will fall in love with them.
Thya is a strong, powerful Tsinian but she’s not afraid to show her emotions. I think when the reader put themselves in her shoes, they will relate and understand why she acts like she does.
Alkazar is the tutor of the arts. It is his job to train the young Tsinians how to use their gifts and how to reel them in. As when they start using their power, it’s strong and uncontrollable. Alkazar had a dark secret which he carries around with him, like a ball and chain. The reader will understand Alkazar and feel compassion for him.
When I asked Karina where she finds her inspiration, I was sad to learn that she no longer writes. However, I did learn this about where she finds her inspiration:
I find inspiration from author S.E.Hinton and the rock band Iron Maiden.
