Hello everyone! I'm Emily Ann Putzke, author of It Took a War. I'm honored to be guest posting on The Pen of a Ready Writer this morning!
I think every writer likes to dream about their book being turned into a movie. (I'm not the only one, right?!) Well, while I'm dreaming, I can pick some amazing actors and actresses to play my characters. If It Took a War were a movie, here's my dream cast.
Age: 16-18 through the span of the book.
Appearance: Brown, curly hair. Brown eyes. Smirks more than he smiles. Tall.
Personality: Adventurous. Loyal friend, brother, and son. Patriotic. Brave.
Age: 13-15 through the span of the book.
Appearance: Long, brown hair. Big brown eyes. Sweet smile.
Personality: Stubborn. Loving. Tries to act like a proper young lady, though it is hard for her.
Age: 4-6 through span of book.
Appearance: Brown, curly hair. A messy face and sticky hands are usual for her. Blue eyes. Dimple.
Personally: Full of life. Sweet. Energetic. Smiley.
Age: 18-20 through span of book.
Appearance: Dark brown hair. Deep brown eyes. Always scowls.

Genevieve Roberts (Mama)
Age: 37-39 through span of book.

It would be a pretty epic movie to have all these actors and actresses together, making my book into a movie. It's fun to dream. =)
1861 - Sixteen year old Joe Roberts leads a mundane life as far as he’s concerned. His world spins in the same circle each day: working at his family’s store, taking his sisters on boyish escapades and bickering with his rogue of a cousin, Lucas. Joe can’t understand why his mother allows Lucas to live and work with them after all the pain he caused their family. When war is declared, Joe is quick to join up and become a soldier with the 11th Pennsylvania Volunteers, but war is nothing like he imagined. To make matters worse, he must endure having Lucas in the same regiment. Can Joe put the pain of the past behind him? Forgiveness is easier said than done.
