Co-author finds fame?

What is this I see before me? Under a thinly-veiled pen-name have I caught my co-author entering the world of novel writing?

Surely he would have used a less obvious nom-de-plume? And yet listen to the plot details and you will realise it has his fingerprints all over it.

"The book follows Poppy Shannon as she goes from a spoilt little rich girl to a lose it all poor girl.

"The subject is a familiar one, but the way Reilly deals with it is not.

"Her (His) dialogue is the funniest ever - I have read most of her (his) books now - still trying to get my hands on Is This Love though.

"The book starts as Poppy's husband informs her that his business partner has run off with the company profits.

"He tells her that they have to sell their huge house, downsize and move to suburbia.

"For Poppy, who has lived in the best places all her life, this is a major shock."

Talk about writing what you know!!! Lived in the best places? Sounds like Leith to me!

Wait until you get to the bit where Poppy's poverty becomes so bad that she has to give up her Celtic Park season ticket and stop buying grappa from Valvona & Crolla. Truly heartbreaking.

That it should come to that! A tragedy...

Does it contain the chapter on Poppy getting into trouble with the local police after "harmlessly" kicking rubbish around the street .......

Brian, there could be a whole chapter on misunderstandings with the police. Of course all are down to the police in question being as thick as mince.
