The Concealing (Spirit Warriors #1)
Release Date: 11/24/13
Summary from Goodreads:
Sixteen-year-old Emme Belrose has it all: four best friends, a horse of her own, a hidden tepee hangout, and a blossoming romance with tall and handsome Charlie. These friends also have a secret. They can move their spirits into animal bodies: an osprey, a mustang, a grizzly, a mountain lion and a coyote.
But when Charlie, who has a gift for seeing the future, has a vision of Emme drowning in the icy Yellowstone River, the Spirit Warriors must train their animal bodies to kill an enemy they know is coming… but know nothing about. Suspenseful, romantic, and awash in Native American magic, Spirit Warriors captures the tragic enchantment of the American West—and confirms the power of friendship.
There is only one celebrity that I wrote a character for. That celebrity is *drumroll* BETTY WHITE. I adore her and I wrote the part of Esther White in the book for her. I realize that Betty is getting up there in years, so I started a tongue in cheek campaign to keep Betty White healthy. Here is the link on my blog http://dellaconnor.com/keep-betty-white-healthy/
Betty White’s twitter is @bettymwhite if you would like to join me in sending her best wishes for longevity.
I think Archie Hunt (Charlie’s Grandfather) should be played by Graham Greene from Dances with Wolves. Emme’s Grandfather, Grandpa Ed, and his friend Oscar Hines should be played by Robert Duvall for Grandpa Ed and Tommy Lee Jones for Oscar Hines. Grandpa Ed will be around for the rest of the series and Oscar Hines will be in flashbacks. I think it would be cool to reunite the Lonesome Dove co-stars.
Scott Belrose, Emme’s father, well I’m kind of torn. I like Rick Schroder, but well would Brad Pitt just be too sexy for the part? Please say no! I really am wishing now!
Angelina Jolie would make a great Josephine Grayson. Might as well have the couple together on set.
I’m saving the kids for the last.
I think Emme, Charlie, Ollie, Bets, Lilly and Jack should all be portrayed by relative newcomers. I want them to be the character and not recognized for another part they played in a different movie or show.
I would love to hear your ideas for these and other characters! Post them on my blog http://dellaconnor.com/keep-betty-white-healthy/
