Black bob with a heavy fringe (bangs)? I immediately thought of Bebe Neuwirth. Most well known for her turn as Frasier’s ex-wife, Lilith, she can do whimsicial and sardonic. She can do anything. My pick for the romance writer extraordinaire, Barbara Starr. She looks awesome and I can see why it would be easy for her to snag many husbands.
Casting – Barbara Starr
