When I envision my characters as I’m writing them, I usually have a rough idea of their physical traits. At some point during the writing of the story I get on the internet and surf for that perfect picture of them. Sometimes it’s someone well-known other times it’s just a stock photo.
With a Taylor-Made Life, I knew exactly what each of the main characters looked like even before I started writing. They came to me fully formed. And while these actors make a good guide for Gavin and Taylor, the details like eye color, hair color, body type may be different. But in my mind this is generally how I see them.
Taylor Marie Smith age 17 is best represented by Dianna Agron. She’s a beautiful bundle of effervescent enthusiasm and bubbly optimism. Her smile lights up a room and that’s exactly how I envision Taylor.
So tell me – If you’ve read A Taylor-Made Life, How do you see Gavin and Taylor?
And if you haven’t read A Taylor-Made Life, you can go get it right now.

Cheerleader Taylor Smith doesn’t want to die a virgin. Unfortunately, if the terminally-ill leukemia patient doesn’t find a lover or a stem-cell match within months, her fear will become reality. When her cancer mentor is revealed to be a hottie entrepreneur from California, it seems fate might finally be on her side.
Tech-geek Gavin Taylor has everything he ever wanted, except someone to grieve for him when he’s gone. With his melanoma cancer beyond the help of his riches, he agrees to participate in a cancer patient mentoring program where he’s matched with a dying teen from Texas. Despite his immediate attraction, the Silicon Valley whiz intends only to provide friendship and happy memories to the beautiful, young woman who is determined to win his love.
When it’s discovered that his frozen sperm and her harvested eggs could lead to a cure, Taylor’s mother offers to be a surrogate. And Gavin must decide if he can risk the heart he has never given and a child he’ll never know to a girl he just met.
