I’ve seen authors voice different opinions about having a real person in their head when writing a story. Some do it, some don’t. Some are against it, some for it.


I find for some characters, it benefits me to have a “voice” in my head. Especially given the amount of dialogue in my stories. If each character has a unique sound in my head – whether that be an actual tone of voice, an accent, or specific mannerisms – their conversations are easier to imagine.

Not every character gets an actor/actress assigned. Some of them alter through the story. Some never get “cast”.

But some are very clearly “that person” through the story.

So, today, I’m sharing a few casting choices for The Ruth Valley Missing.
