Casting Call #3: Lady Thelma Sharpe

She's the one who sets off the events of DILLON AND THE VOICE OF ODIN in a lot of ways.  And she continues to stir the soup by actively participating in the hunt for Dillon through a good part of the book as well as making a last ditch attempt to kill him after everybody has long forgotten about her and think the adventure is over.  Who do I see as Lady Thelma?

Why Carol Burnett?  Even though she's deadly serious in her efforts to kill Dillon, there's a lot of comedic elements to her, fueled by her Olympian consumption of alcohol.  I've seen Miss Burnett play mean drunks and that's the very definition of Lady Thelma.
