I was reading something different from my usual stuff...a short story 'The Girl who took a Bullet for the President (of Kalămatizstan*)
*home of the world’s hottest – allegedly - chilli
The story seemed to go down well...there were some smiles, which I was pleased about, but also hopefully the audience were imagining the world of a young female student who (somewhat ironically) buys the memoirs of an Alpha Male president of one of those countries one can never quite find on the map. Jessica falls (quite literally) into a very strange world indeed; seductive, dark, and definitely dangerous.
