Rachel Brady's "Dead Lift"

Rachel Brady is the author of the Emily Locke mysteries, Final Approach and Dead Lift.

Here she shares some ideas for casting a cinematic adaptation of Dead Lift:
If Dead Lift were developed into a film, I’d cast Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet from Lost) as the main character, Emily Locke. When I picture Emily in my mind, she’s a lot like Mitchell. Kim Catrell would be a shoe-in for Emily’s best friend, Jeannie. The role of Richard Cole, Emily’s private investigator boss, would go to Tom Selleck. He has the perfect look and all the right mannerisms. Her boyfriend Vince, would have to be played by a tall, dark, and sexy country music singer, but this is the actor I’ve been stumped on for days. Maybe your readers can help me out with that one. Sharon Stone would be a perfect Claire Gaston, the sexy fifty-something who is accused of murder in the book. And Claire’s nemesis, Diana King, would be Susan Sarandon, with a chip on her shoulder.
