When I sit down to write a book, I start out with an idea or image in my head of what my characters look like. But as I write, I let the characters take me wherever they go. And as their personalities come out more and more throughout the book, that image can change and become more defined.
The same thing happens when I read a book. Images of the characters form in my head. However, discussing a book with other people who have read it, I have discovered that not everyone has the same idea as to how each character looks. Even if we all agree on hair and eye color (the author usually give you that), we don’t always agree on everything else.
That got me to thinking. And I wondered what images you see when you think about my Shadow Falls characters. I have posted pictures of Kylie, Lucas & Derek, so you may have a pretty firm idea of how they look. But what about the other characters? What about Della? Miranda? Burnett? I thought it would be fun to post some photos of possible characters and let you vote on them. So, today, we are going to see what you think Della and Miranda look like.
First, let’s go with what we know. Della is Asian and has dark hair and eyes. Kylie thought she was a goth at first because she had that whole pale vampire thing going on. But what does she look like to you?

Della 3 Della 4
Now, how about Miranda? Well, she has black, lime green and pink hair. Of course hair color can change, and it was hard to find photos of girls with multi-colored hair. So, you’ll have to give me a little on that one. So, which one looks most like Miranda to you?
