Our Characters and Cast

Elizabeth- 50-60 years old any ethnic background

Elizabeth is a soul, who incarnated too quickly. In doing so, she brings back the anger, betrayal, and need for revenge that she felt in her previous life as Sara Jane is back with her. Although she doesn't consciously remember the past, the deeply embedded distrust of love has poisoned her present life.  Emotionally numb, she has built an emotional castle around herself, in which no one is allowed to enter.  Only through the characters in her novels, is she able to feel emotion.  The common theme in her novels is that of righteous women exacting revenge.  Arriving in Coyote Springs, the old memories and emotions overwhelm her as people and places seem familiar, bringing with them the rage that was spawned by the betrayal.


Michael: A 45-50 any ethnic background.

Built like a lumberjack, Michael is the reincarnation of Randolph.  A scholar and researcher of Historical Archelogy, Michael was known for his attention to detail and fact-checking, which gave him a reputation of being a pain in the ass.  However, he radically changed after he moved to Coyote Springs, His obsessive search for historical truth was replaced by a desperate need to know everything about Sara Jane and Randolph Bellows.  Although he had always been passionate about life—he loved deeply, but never for long. There has always been a missing piece – a part of the relationship that didn’t fit or didn’t fulfill the longing or loneliness. When he met Shane, she felt familiar and he thought he had found who he had been looking for. As he learns the true nature of her heart, he realizes that she is not the person he thought she was.  He has made the same mistake. He has to decide between rekindling the love’s passion or being consumed by the flames of revenge.


Jose Pablo Cantillo

Lynne: 50–60-year-old any ethnic background

The reincarnation of Rachel with limited memories,  Lynne needs to walk a fine line between conscious knowledge and subconscious motivation. Lynne's soul also reincarnated very quickly. But unlike the others, she returned out of love and the need to help others heal. Although she has little conscious memories of her past life, it has influenced her relationships and led her to be a motivating force in the karmic balancing. Those she loved before were in torment, because of the lies they believed when they died.  By gently guiding Elizabeth and Michael to forgiveness as well as supporting Amanda's healing process, she sets some of the wrongs back to right.


Kimberly Estrada

Daniel: A man in his seventies or above


As a teenager, he witnessed Sara Jane and Randolph’s wedding, their love, and the grief that nearly killed Randolph.  He also knows many of the Ramsdell and Bellow's family secrets, including the murders that changed both families’ destinies.  Although he cares very deeply for Amanda, he knows she will never let him close enough for the relationship to develop. 


Arthur Wahlbert

Amanda:  70+ woman

On the surface, Amanda has led an exemplary life.   The community saw her as a pillar, who spoke her mind like a gunslinger shooting from the hip.  Her words were frequently as deadly to overblown egos.  She used her time, energy, and wealth to keep Coyote Springs progressively moving forward economically and socially.  However, as much others loved and respected her, even her quirky attachment to Sara Jane and Randolph’s home and her belief in the paranormal, they only saw the persona that she chose to show them.  She hid her guilt and regret for allowing her fear to stop her.   She has lived her life unjustly feeling guilty for other people's actions. Over the years, she has isolated herself, because she was led to believe that to love her or to be loved her was a death sentence for the other person. Although a stroke has slowed her down, it will not stop her from making right what her fear made wrong.

Elaine: 40–a 50-year-old woman of any ethnic background.  

Long time companion of Amanda, she could be mistaken for an Army drill sergeant when it comes to protecting and standing up to Amanda.  She knows what Amanda knows.  Their closeness has led to gossip.  Some believe their relationship is more sexual than employer-employee.  Others believe that Elaine is Amanda’s daughter, that she gave up for adoption after Leonard refused to marry her and disappeared.

Lynne Lowry


Judy:  50ish woman who looks like she could be related to Amanda.

Although she comes off as a hard-ass controlling bitch, she is a wounded soul—an abused child that her mother used to control and manipulate her father, Randolph.   She did her best to protect her younger siblings only for them to see her as manipulative and controlling as Audrey.  She doesn’t understand their resentment.  She took the brunt of the abuse, including keeping silent when their older sister disappeared.  By then, she had become very good at keeping secrets.  Eventually, her whole world twisted into an unnatural flip.  Audrey was a loving mother who protected them from the evil ghost.  Her older sister never existed.  Their father wasn’t murdered.  He died suddenly, leaving nearly all his wealth to Amanda, a woman who despised them and who forced them to leave their home.  If her mother hadn’t married James, they would have starved.  Upon Audrey’s death, Judy vowed to continue her crusade to destroy Amanda and Sara Jane’s legacy.

Shane: late 20s/early 30’s woman who is Judy’s niece. The actress must have a strong singing voice

Audrey reincarnated, she is sensual, insecure, and quick-tempered to the point of instability.  She uses her beauty and her family’s resources to get out of the trouble created by her jealousy and irrational behavior.  Jefferson and she grew up together.  Accepting her for the good, bad, and ugly, he alone defended her and her actions.  Together they created the band, Audrey and the Lumbermen.   More than a passion, music calms her soul and gives her peace.  Performing sets all her insecurities aside.  She is the mistress of her destiny with a power that no one can take from her.  The audiences expect and encourage her outlandish behavior.    When Audrey’s memories return, she becomes determined to destroy her enemies, including Randolph/Michael. She wants what she wants and doesn’t care who she has to hurt or what she has to do to get it.

Before he could return, Shane had married him. Hurt and angry, Jefferson will not give up on their love.  He knows it will not last because he will not allow it.

Sara Jane: 20something woman

Sara Jane, Amanda, and their older brother, James Jr. lived a charmed life.  Their family owned one of the largest lumber mills in Michigan and controlled large tracts of virgin old-growth forest.    Her parents’ love was that of legends.  She never understood until she met Randolph. To provide for her, Randolph broke tradition and claimed the largest tract of virgin forest for himself, instead of her father, making him a social outcast.  Enraged, James forbade the marriage.    Sara Jane and her mother, Rachel, used their influence to redeem Randolph.  James was relenting until Rachel suddenly died.  Grief-stricken, James blames Randolph. Sara Jane and Randolph elope.  Their happiness only serves to strengthen James’ hatred.    Sara Jane goes into labor.  Unable to reach Randolph, she calls Audrey for help.  James intercedes.  By the time the doctor arrives, there is nothing he can do.  Sara Jane’s love keeps her earth-bound.  When she is unable to save her daughter, her love becomes hatred and a need for revenge as she is led to believe that Randolph fell in love with Audrey and helped murder their child.
