What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have always been fascinated by the risks people take in order to have an affair. There are so many ways to get found out, especially in these days of electronic communication. Why risk your marriage, your kids, your job, your financial security just to become an adulterer? But if you can’t stop yourself, what strategies could you employ to prevent anyone ever finding out? And what would be the consequences if they did!
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The central character in this first person novel is Lee. He is the man I never want to become: shallow and self-obsessed.
Tamsin, his wife, apparently emotionless and unaffectionate, provokes Lee into having an affair with Sophia.
Sophia is carefree, uninhibited and carefree, but what does she actually want?
“No, no, no, no, NO!” I realise my mistake milliseconds after pressing the little arrow icon. I’ve just sent the text message “That was incredible! God, you’re so hot! xxx” to my wife, instead of my lover.
The traffic lights turn green and I drive away, searching for somewhere to park so I can figure out if I can save this situation. I turn in to a side street and pull over to the side of the road. How did that happen? I’m always so careful. That will teach me not to send messages while I’m driving. I pick up my phone, type in my six-digit passcode and look at the screen. Two grey ticks. My wife’s phone has received it, but she hasn’t read it yet. Sometimes she doesn’t look at my messages for hours. Perhaps there’s a way I can delete it from her phone before she even notices it. I feel sick and I’m sweating. What am I going to say if she reads it?
