Becky Masterman's "Fear the Darkness"

Becky Masterman grew up in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and received her MA in creative writing from Florida Atlantic University. She lives in Tucson, Arizona, with her husband.

Here she dreamcasts an adaptation of her new novel, Fear the Darkness, the second book in the Brigid Quinn Series:
People ask me, are you Brigid Quinn? Is her husband Carlo DiForenza based on your husband? If you've read either books in my series, starting with Rage Against the Dying and followed up by Fear the Darkness, you might wonder if we match the characters of a beautiful, sexy, strong, retired FBI agent and her handsome, sexy, super smart, ex-Catholic priest husband. I rather like us the way we are, but I don't think I would cast us for the movie roles. I'm thinking more Jamie Lee Curtis and Jeff Goldblum.

Some who've read my books object to Goldblum because they say he's too cynical. But I like the idea of Carlo not taking himself too seriously, delivering wise sayings with a touch of irony.
