So I liked Cecily. She had this tough exterior that made me get attached to her. I like the tough women in stories. Ian was hot but he did lose some points with me on his grouchy attitude. I could have overlooked if for a little bit but it seemed to go on for a long time. The romance was fine. I liked that they did not fall all over each other right from the beginning. Although, when they finally hooked up to do the deed. It was almost half way into the story. It felt a little lackluster and clinical. This is not what you really want it to feel like with someone. There should be passion and love. Luckily the next time was better.

What was the writing process like for The Longest Night?
Did the characters or the story come first?
Did you picture any specific actors/celebrities when writing Cecily and Ian?
I imagined Cecily Knight to look like Katee Sackhoff from the Battlestar Galactica remake, only with red hair. Ian Fairchild looks like Leif Stacey, a model. Cecily’s best friend, Marguerite, is based on the gorgeous Gina Torres.
