Sequel to Wake-Robin Ridge: Meet Rabbit

Introducing Rabbit.

This is actor Tristan Lake Leabu, my inspiration boy for the sequel to Wake-Robin Ridge. Rabbit is a little boy who has been raised isolated from civilization, in the deepest wilderness of the North Carolina mountains. Circumstances have left him alone in this wild and remote area at the age of ten. His journey to find the Good People his dying grandmother told him about, makes up the first part of his story. But an even bigger journey awaits him, as he learns how to live in a world full of things he has never even imagined, and struggles to win the love of the man he believes is supposed to take care of him.  I’ve just started on Chapter 6 of my draft, and so far, I think the story is shaping up pretty well. Hope my Beta readers think so, too.

Everything about Tristan Leabu is exactly the way I have described Rabbit, and having his picture on my Inspiration Board keeps me focused on his long journey out of the wild and into today’s world. He has already stolen my heart.

  1. It’s kind of amazing when you see an actor or someone and they are just perfect for a character 😀


    • Yeah! If only HOLLYWOOD could do that! 🙂 I have pretty much quit watching movies because 95% of them are so badly cast, I can’t even get my mind around it. I knew when I saw Tom Cruise cast as Jack Reacher that my love affair with movies was finally over. 😀 (If they can’t figure out that a character 6’5″ and so huge he had hands like “dinner plates” should not be played by a 5’6″ actor, then I’m done with them.

      Now Tristan Leabu is the spitting image of Rabbit. I stopped in my tracks when I saw his little face. (Of course, he’s already outgrown the role, being a real life kid who didn’t quit growing just to accommodate ME, but at the point he was in these pictures, he IS Rabbit.)

      Nice seeing you here, Mishka! Have a great day.
