My Fictional Valentine

We’re about a month away from the debut of ICE COLD KILL, which features Daria Gibron.

UnknownDaria first appeared in the novel CRASHERS. And it dawned on me this morning that I scribbled the first drafts of that novel back in 1999. So Daria’s been occupying a sector of my brain for more than a dozen years.

Pleased to share her with you.

Note: I often “cast” my manuscripts with actors. I find it easier to write dialog if I can hear someone speaking it. From “Go,” Daria was Milla Jovovich. And this was before she was an action star.

Why? That accent. Yes, the actress is from Kiev. And yes, Daria is from the Gaza Strip and Tel Aviv. But to my ear, that accent carried the dialog.
