Many authors draw inspiration from pictures, whether they're images of places, structures, or people. When I write, I see the story in my head like a movie, so it makes sense that I tend to cast my characters after I've created them. Of course, it makes finding the right image doubly hard.
There's also the fact that I write Historical, so it's tough finding a model with the right look. Anyway, I thought I'd share some of the fellas I've cast so far (sans their suits). The hairstyles are a bit modern on some, but I think we can overlook that. ;)

Although these photos are for inspirational purposes, Bobby isn't old enough to join the fellas here, and Johnnie and Alexander didn't want to leave him on his lonesome. So the brats remain in their Photo Friday post, a Behind the Scenes look at The Auspicious Troubles of Chance.
