About “Eve”

September 25, 2009

IgnatiusThere are several stories about women and power in this book. “Eve” is the first. Her name is not an accident: the battle she fights is part of a war that started in the Garden of Eden.

The important thing about power in a relationship is to learn how to use it, and when to use it… and when not to use it. Getting the use of power right or wrong can make or break a marriage.

This is the longest story in the book. You’ll find some fun skiing scenes here, and two intense and crucial scenes in bed, and some sharp social comedy.

My friend Crusty is rather proud of being the model for both the baddie’s dress sense at breakfast and the goodie’s taste in music. People sometimes worry about being put in a story — unless they demand it, which also happens! —  but the fact is that one’s friends are never a direct model for characters in the story. The characters come first, and then, when we come to flesh them out, they pick up their dress and speech and mannerisms from what we have seen around us.

Read the story when it appears on this blog next Monday. The book doesn’t come out until 19 November, but you can pre-order it now or request a review copy.
