There can be only one, right?

In my September book SPIN CONTROL, the main character – Suzannah – has a crush on Adrian Paul’s Highlander character. Suzannah’s best friend Noelle loves Christopher Lambert’s version. I was worried that readers wouldn’t find this believable because they’d all think Adrian Paul was sexier.

But guess what? When my copyedited manuscript arrived, my editor had made a notation in the margin next to that scene. It said: I’m with Noelle!


It always amazes me how tastes can differ so wildly. Some Charmed fans for example prefer Leo, some prefer Cole. Some persons will watch anything with Tom Hanks in it, some only go to certain movies in spite of the fact he’s in it. (For the record, I’m pro-Cole, and lately, just a little bit anti-Tom. But I haven’t seen Da Vinci Code yet, so maybe he’ll change my mind. I’m not holding my breath though.)

But in any case: Christopher Lambert over Adrian Paul? Not in my world! Sheesh!

Colin First vs. Matthew Macfadyen
And of course there's the new debate raging these days: who's the better Darcy? The wooden, skinny-as-a-rail, I-cant-get-muscle-tone-even-if-I-work-out-24/7 Colin Firth? Or the pillow-voiced, macho, I-can-actually-sweat Matthew Macfadyen?

I think you know my answer! ;-)

Re: Colin First vs. Matthew Macfadyen
Hey Karm, that's a good one. I like Colin Firth for the first half (firth half?) of the movie, and Matthew for the rest. Why? Because I think Colin is sexier, but when Matthew gave the -- I can't get you out of my mind so please, please marry me -- speech, I felt like he was the one who was really in love with her. Colin? In love with Colin, but I'm in love with him too so who's counting?

And meanwhile, I loved Matthew in MI-5 so seeing him again was great.

Hey Cate, thanks for the visit! I know what you mean about our names.

Mithos? Seriously? Well, you all keep surprising me, that's for sure!
