Are these guys still HOT or are they getting COLD?

I think our boy posts over the last few years establishes the fact that we like the young-un's. Of course it's all in the name of research for our YA novels. But what about the guys old enough to star as the "hot" dad in our novels. Here are a few of my favorites.

The Hoff- I know, I know. He's kind of washed up now. But I've loved him since Knight Rider, then Baywatch. I even suffered, and I mean suffered, through the new KR movie just to see his brief cameo. He's totally sucking it in in his picture, but he's still super hot, right?

Dennis Quaid- I'm still crushed about Dennis & Meg divorcing, but I still love the guy. He seems so nice in real life. Oh yeah, and he's smoking hot. Here he is trying not to turn into a human popsicle in The Day After Tomorrow. The crisis he recently went through with his twins only made me love him more.

Bruce Willis- How can you not love a guy who is cool hanging out with his ex-wife and her much younger husband? I love Bruce in all his movies but my favorite is Armageddon. Here he is in his flight suit trying to save our planet from a fiery meteorite. I wonder if Rumor's friends crush more on her dad or her step-dad? So, who would star as the hot dad in your favorite YA novel?

And in other totally HOT news***** I'm very excited to announce that Tina Ferraro and I are both finalists in the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence Contest. Yeah!



Revenge of the Homecoming Queen, OUT NOW!

Twisted Sisters, it'll be here before you know it, April 1st!!!!

They're still hot! And for more hot dads who could sizzle on the screen of our books-made-into-films, how about Kurt Russell, Matt Dillon and Rob Lowe?

And thanks for mentioning our contest finals! Yay!

Oh, I can't believe I forgot Rob Lowe. He is so hot! And in our newspaper today it said that Matt Damon will be in our town filming a movie in May. Do you think I'll run into him at Target? :) A girl can dream.

Yeah, I think you picked some good ones. And GOOD CALL on Matt Dillon and Rob Lowe!

Warning: Strong Opinions Coming

I worshiped the Hoff when he was Michael Knight. Now... not so much. Also tainted by the memory of seeing him on Broadway in Jekyll and Hyde--he was a great performer, but he has super skinny legs!

I will love Dennis Quaid until my dying breath. He just gets hotter with age.

Bruce Willis has never been my type. Never.

Kurt Russell is perpetually hot, too. I think Goldie is keeping him young.

Matt Dillon and Rob Lowe still don't feel like old guys to me yet. My mind knows they are, but my heart hasn't accepted the truth.

And, again, CONGRATS!!!!!!!

I've loved Rob Lowe since he starred in About Last Night with Demi Moore.

Congrats to both of you on the Gayle Wilson finals.

I *heart* Bruce Willis. Also Don Johnson & Mel Gibson. When I 'cast' my YA dad, I had a younger Mel in mind :)

One more to add! I fell for William Hurt in BODY HEAT years ago, and just saw him in VANTAGE POINT, and even sharing the screen with Dennis Quaid and Matthew Fox, he still looked darned good to me!
