Stephanie Chong's "Where Demon’s Fear To Tread"

Stephanie Chong worked as a lawyer at a top-tier Canadian firm and completed five university degrees before landing her dream job: romance novelist. Her degrees include a J.D. and a Ph.D. from the University of Toronto, and a Master’s in Creative Writing from Oxford University.

At Fiction Vixen, she recently shared her dream cast for an adaptation of her novel, Where Demon’s Fear To Tread. Reposted with permission:
The Heroine: Serena St. Clair

Guardian angel and yoga teacher Serena St. Clair left her own human life at just twenty-three years old. Now returned to earth to guide humans, Serena is innocent, gentle and full of optimism.

I would love to see Jennifer Lawrence in this role. She’s such a talented actor, and was superb in Winter’s Bone. I can’t wait to see her as Katniss Everdeen in The Hunger Games. I love those books.

Alternatively, Rosie Huntington-Whitely, who took over as the female lead in Transformers 3. She was a former Victoria’s Secret model and has already worn angel wings – maybe that’s why I picture her in this role.

The Hero: Julian Ascher

Archdemon Julian Ascher owns an empire of nightclubs. Which he uses to lure humans into their greatest moments of weakness and desperation, of fantasy and desire. A connoisseur of pleasure, Julian loves destroying beautiful woman for the sheer joy of ruining the sublime.

As Julian, I’d love to see Henry Cavill, who was Charles Brandon in The Tudors. Cavill is starring in the new Superman movie, and I’m looking forward to his take on that iconic character.

Or else Ian Somerhalder, who plays Damon in The Vampire Diaries. He’s got smoldering down to an art. He has a great chemistry with Nina Dobrov, and I think he’d make a great Julian.
