What inspired you to write your book?
A variety of tales from friends I know who have met men on the net and then in real life. Most have had nice experiences but not all and a couple have had horrific meets. The book also acts as a warning for women to keep themselves safe and really do their homework before meeting a strange man or woman.
Here is a short sample from the book:
I took another deep breath, my body so nervous and rigid that my lungs
struggled to take in any air and I started to change. My tatty v-neck jumper
exchanged for a white riding shirt, which I buttoned up apart from the collar
button as instructed. I carefully pulled up my silk hold up stockings. Probably
because of the adrenalin caused by the situation, my senses seemed to be
enhanced. I hadn’t even met Richard yet, but as I pulled those stockings up, every
skin pore on my smooth shaved legs seemed to have a nerve ending and this
caused a tingling sensation that made me wet inside. I finally slipped my heels on
and I was ready. I was trying to regulate my breathing and stop myself from
panicking and running back to the car, which crossed my mind several times.
I waited, just watching my horse and waiting to hear another car pull up. I waited
for what was probably only three or four minutes, but it seemed like hours, when I
heard a car pull up outside. I went to the door and looked through a hole in the
door. I saw a tall handsome man get out of a Black BMW Convertible and close the
door behind him. He was over six foot and of average build. He was older than
he’d looked in his George Clooney lookalike photograph, his black hair greying,
but this gave him a distinguished look and if anything added to his allure.
