Laura Creedle's "The Love Letters of Abelard and Lily"

Laura Creedle writes about her experiences as an ADHD writer at her website and blog. She lives in Austin, Texas.

Here Creedle dreamcasts an adaptation of her new novel, The Love Letters of Abelard and Lily:
When you start to write a YA book with actors in mind they will age out of your role before you finish. I always imagined Lily as Emma Stone at her absolute House Bunny goofiest.

Selena Gomez as her best friend Rosalind.

Dylan Minette would be perfect for Abelard and he’s actually the right age.

J.K. Simmons would make a great Coach Neuwirth.

In the book I compare Dr. Brainguy to Claude Rains in Now Voyager, but in my mind I always saw him as John Cassevetes. Still, I could imagine any of a dozen actors currently around playing Dr. Brainguy, sharp eyes to the world, figuring out the dynamics of everybody and everything.

Scott Eastwood as Dr. Golden.
