Suzy Turner's cast for the Morgan Series

Mark Killeen
Like most authors, my ultimate dream is to have my books made into movies. I mean, can you imagine how cool that would be? Even if it did happen, I doubt very much that I'd have much say in who plays who. But if I did, well, I have a good idea about who would be perfect in The Morgan Sisters.
Most importantly is the character of Declan Alexander, not because he's a main character - he isn't. But because this series was inspired by a guy I met last year who would make the perfect Declan! His name is Mark Killeen and he's a British actor who I became buddies with whilst working on a movie in Portugal ( I've already asked him if he would play Declan and he has agreed. YAY! :)
Emma Jane Morgan is more difficult to cast really but in an ideal world she'd be
Vivien Leigh
played by a young  Vivien Leigh.
Jasmine Breinburg
Lana Beth Morgan would be played by Jasmine Breinburg (she's the beautiful girl who starred in the opening ceremony of the London Olympics 2012). The moment I saw her, I thought 'wow, she looks exactly like I pictured Lana Beth'.
Eleanor Haydn-Jones would be played by Dame Maggie Smith and the lovely British actress Emilia Fox - you'll have to read the books to see why there is an old and a young version though! 
I always had  Aishwarya Rai in my mind for the character of Saleena because she is the most beautiful Asian woman you'll ever see.
Aishwarya Rai
Sean Bean
Sean Bean is my Patrick Morgan and his wife, Audrey, would be played by Emma Thompson - I just love her, don't you?
I have lots more characters but I haven't yet made up my mind who would play them. Perhaps that would be another post for another day!

The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw
Morgan Sisters #1

The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw, a Morgan Sisters novel

Adopted sisters Lana Beth and Emma Jane are polar opposites, but when the same strange 'tattoo' suddenly appears and winds its way up their bodies within days of each other, they soon realise there's more to their relationship than they could ever have imagined. 
Sent off to London for two weeks of 'work experience', the Morgan Sisters soon find themselves being initiated into the ancient Praxos Foundation, one that protects the innocent while fighting evil, both human and supernatural.
At the same time, Lana Beth and Emma Jane must also investigate why the sweet but sometimes pesky ghost of Josiah Grimshaw just won't leave them alone.

Daisy Madigan's Paradise
Morgan Sisters #1.5

When tragedy falls upon 15 year old Daisy Madigan, she escapes to the only place she feels safe, the cemetery of Abney Park. There, in the company of the dearly departed, she realises she is changing, growing stronger and faster by the day. But in the darkness lurks a terror even she can't imagine facing.

Daisy Madigan's Paradise is a Morgan Sisters novella. Check out The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw, the full length first novel in the series.

The Temporal Stone
Morgan Sisters #2

It's been a couple of months since Emma and Lana entered the Praxos Academy and life has been hectic ever since. What with regular A level classes combined with learning all about the supernatural world, control classes, self defence and fight night, the girls are constantly busy.
But when their world seems to stop right in front of them, they and their fellow Watchers, have a huge mystery to solve. A mystery which will lead them on a long road trip across south west England where they will meet all kinds of strange creatures, some intent on causing harm and others desperate to put a stop to the problem.
The Temporal Stone is the second full length novel in The Morgan Sisters series. The first book is entitled The Ghost of Josiah Grimshaw. There is also a free novella, Daisy Madigan's Paradise.

Although Suzy is a Yorkshire lass at heart, she left her home town of Rotherham, UK, to move to Portugal with her family when she was ten.
The Algarve continues to be her home, where she lives with her childhood sweetheart husband Michael and their menagerie of cats and dogs.
Suzy's career began soon after completing her A levels when she was offered the position of trainee journalist for a local English newspaper. Her love of writing developed and a few years later she moved on to become assistant editor for the region's largest English language publisher. Since then she has also worked as the editor of one of the Algarve's most loved monthly lifestyle magazines. Early in 2010 however, Suzy began working as a freelance writer and author. She has since completed three novels for teens, The Raven Saga, a trilogy.
