πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ-born, πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§-based, novelist.πŸ“– Writing, travel, culture and more. Always holding "auditions" – so be careful or you may end up a character in β€œ1797”…and perhaps an evil one.🎭 (And why do I suspect some of you might like that latter in particular?)πŸ˜‚

….no, no, I don’t mean Revenge the TV show. Although, I will admit, I like that show. It’s utterly ridiculous, and I suppose something of a guilty pleasure.

What I mean is some fictional “revenge” via keyboard. I admit I have engaged in, uh, a little bit….


Yes, yes, I know. I deserve a finger-pointing lecture. [Robert hangs head in shame.] I am a terrible person….

WhileΒ Passports is full of positive representations, within some others I couldn’t resist taking a few mild (intensely personal) swipes at certain individuals.

As I work on the sequel, I have found I have done the same. We kinda know we shouldn’t sneakily do these things, but it provides a measure of tiny satisfaction only you know about. And, ultimately, it’s fiction anyway.

If you write, don’t tell me you’ve never slipped stuff like that in for yourself “under the radar.” πŸ˜‰

Above all, don’t we all want to give future English literature scholars something to try to dig up and then chew on for a Ph.D.? (“My research indicates, and while others may reach different conclusions, he may have been alluding to a torrid affair he had with that woman. Clearly he also had a major axe to grind with his former friend….”)

Hope you’re having a nice weekend. πŸ™‚
