But first (or second, whichever you’d rather; I’m easy), read on below to see the dream cast of Liss’s YA fantasy novel, FINDING MONSTERS.

Hollywood is buzzing with the blockbuster premier of Finding Monsters, starring young Elle Fanning as Missy and Ben Barnes as Charlie. If any of you have read the book you know we’re in for an action packed adventure on the big screen!
The A-List cast are lining up on the red carpet as we speak. Film Director, James Cameron has created an incredible cast to head line his next blockbuster hit.
Elle Fanning as Missy: Species – Human. Missy is a young teenage girl whose battle with cancer is running its course. Only a miracle can save her life.
Ben Barnes as Charlie: Species – Monster of the Bullclan. Charlie’s the monster under Missy’s bed. He’s called to her several times and this time she answers him. She might be ready to face her mortality, but he will not. Their lives forever connected, they find themselves in his world, a realm of monsters.
Vincent D’onofrio as Vrag the Devil: Species – Monster. Vrag teaches Missy a valuable lesson. You can’t win against the creatures of this world, unless one of them teaches you how to fight. Reluctantly, Vrag will become her instructor and eventually a friend.
Tyrese Gibson as Saal: Species – Jackal from the monster realm. A ruthless jackal sent to hunt Missy down. As she quest to become a monster, her strength and power increase. He must decide which side he’s on before time runs out.
Juaquin Phoenix as Anukhan, King of the Jackals: Species – Jackal from the monster realm. He is ruthless in his pursuit of the blue light of a select few monsters. As Missy gets closer to achieving the light, Anukhan gets closer to his devious plans. Both men and monsters will fear him.
