Of course, the question was as innocent as I was in those days. Since then I have set stories in a poultry killing plant, a broken-down wreck of a truck and several threadbare domestic interiors. As I prepare to launch
I realise that my contribution to literature may be to set a story in a condom warehouse. Among the packets of Ridged Ticklers and Pleasure Domes a story of lust and love unfolds into passion, violence and destruction. (The names of the condoms have been altered slightly).
So – why the condom warehouse? The answer is of course, that this is a true story from my own life experience and that is where Lyn, our heroine worked. I was able to see all sides of these events and have added very little. I can say no more.
This novelette is the last of the series of tales from the gritty streets which form the “Love in a Hopeless Place Collection” which will appear in July. At last, I have gotten that piece of grit out of my eye and can see clear Romance ahead. Indeed, I am working on a story for a publisher almost as if I were a proper writer, although probably I should not go that far. All I can say is that a manly Lord and his elegant lover come together as the sun sets in Venice. Defo not a dead turkey, car smash or condom in sight. Well, you can have too much of a good thing.

Emma Thinx: A cold heart is love’s only hopeless place
I love that title. Wishing you good success with this new one, Emma. Cheers,
I think most people have a little 'grit' in their life-story somewhere – even if it is secondhand. Real life isn't always pretty. I've really enjoyed everything I've read of yours Emma and hope this collection does amazingly well. The cover is beautiful – love the purple! Congrats on another brilliant story.
