Dream Cast Blog Post
Brenda and I took two characters each when we wrote Forbidden Territory. I am in charge of Mica Latham and Eli Connell. As I have written these characters, I’ve totally fallen in love with both of them. They are fantastic characters and so much fun to write.
I had a very clear image of Eli right from the outset. Yes, that’s right – Tom Welling. Ahhhh – happy sigh. I don’t really need to say anything else 🙂
With Mica I had a very clear picture of in my head, but I’ve never been able to find an actress that looks like her. Once when we were surfing the net, Brenda stumbled across this image and it was spot on… especially her hair 🙂
Your turn Brenda 🙂
I didn’t even have to think about what Tom looked like, he kind of already existed in my head the moment I thought of his name. This is the closest pic I’ve come across that looks like him. Mainly because of the long blonde fringe and lean body. Tom is slightly cuter in my head though J
Lexy was hard to find. She’s a down to earth girl who doesn’t think she’s anything but average. But in actual fact she’s rather gorgeous (like her brother).
So those are our main four.
I wonder if they look like this in your head too 🙂

Mica and Lexy have been best friends and next door neighbours since they were eight years old. They share everything and have no secrets from each other until… Tom arrives on Mica’s doorstep – a gorgeous exchange student from England. And Lexy is smitten.
Suddenly both girls are keeping secrets. Mica is hiding news about Tom’s English girlfriend and Lexy hasn’t got the heart to tell her best friend that her brother Eli, the guy Mica is mad on, thinks of her as only a friend.
After a massive fight, the girls decide the best way to mend their friendship is to spend some quality time together. And what better way than to go camping away from their parents and why not invite along the guys they are crushing on.
So the four teenagers embark on a geo-caching expedition into New Zealand’s native bush expecting a long weekend filled with flirtatious fun; instead secrets are exposed as they stumble across a hidden marijuana crop and its gun-wielding watchmen. Forced apart they spend the next forty-eight hours racing blindly in opposite directions as they fight to find each other before the hunters do.

Melissa Pearl and Brenda Howson have been best friends for about 12 years. Both mothers of two young children, both married to school teachers and both lovers of writing, they have a lot in common. Having spent many vacations away together, they have become as close to sisters as two girls can get. It was on one of these holidays away that the Mica and Lexy Series was born.
Melissa is the author of the Time Spirit Trilogy, which was published at the end of 2011. She is a fully trained elementary teacher, but is lucky enough to stay home and watch her kids grow. She is also spending every spare moment trying to turn writng into a full time career – and loving the process.
Brenda was the one who encouraged Melissa to start writing in the first place. Once Melissa got started, Brenda caught the bug and she has been writing for ten years, in between motherhood and working at a local high school in the computer department. She has won two short story competitions and been runner up in another. Forbidden Territory will be her first published novel.
