She wakes as society crumbles
She wakes up with no memory
She wakes up a queen

The girl once known as Katie Lopez wakes up in an abandoned Wal-Mart with no memory, possessing only the vague sense that something has happened. Where is her family? Where is her boyfriend? She has a faint recollection of him, a ghost of a memory. The world, she discovers, is staggering from the weight of rampaging mutants, victims of a bizarre surgery gone wrong. Once intended to bring about a utopia, now the victims threaten societal meltdown. Much to her surprise, the girl with no memory discovers she is their queen.

I have a new book coming out in November of 2016.  I think you’ll like it!  Who would be my dream cast in the movie?
This is a hard one.  I’ll do my best.  I don’t know much about young hollywood stars (I’m in my 30s.  SO old) so I’m relying on Google.

My story is about Carmine, a nineteen year old Hispanic girl waking up abandoned in a hospital after a three month comma.  Perhaps she could be played by Victoria Justice?


Carmine’s primary love interest is a boy she can’t remember, but who’s crazy about her.  He’s a notorious masked vigilante, about her age.  Maybe he could be played by Dylan O’Brien? 



Carmine’s closest friend is Kayla, a bubbly girl enhanced by a rare disease to make her intelligent and breathtakingly beautiful.  

Is this not most young hollywood actresses?  

Maia Mitchell?

Tank, the mysterious and handsome recluse - He’s supposed to be a 6 feet, 8 inches tall.

So it’s tricky.

Ryan Guzman

Blue-Eyes, the Villain.

The prettiest woman on earth.

Julianne Hough

Finally, another villain.

Walter.  A powerful fighter from Los Angeles.

Ashley Walters

How’s that??  =)   This was fun. Although my Google search history is now super weird.

You’ll LOVE Carmine!  I hope you read it.
