I am an Englishman stranded, by choice, in France for many a long year. I eat, drink, write, design, occasionally paint and even more occasionally carry out household improvements. I enjoy most things stimulating, with the total exception of rap music which I detest. I feel one should detest something to exhibit some form of intellectual maturity, so there you go. I am beginning to grow up because I listen to jazz from time to time and am totally unimpressed with a lot of popular music since the 1990′s.

I also find that I see a lot of popular modern art for what it is, that needs no amplification. I dabble in local politics, mainly because it is so completely different from my native culture, naturally I leave not one hint of an effect.

Smashwords book reviews by Douglas Spencer Wallis

    Now this a tremendous read, the heroine is completely without morals when it comes to planning the death of her mother in law, the husband of her best friend and anyone else who upsets her. The story is told through the diary of this spoilt rich chick who puts into action and words what I am sure many a gal thinks privately, with the ensuing chaotic results. You really should not like her, but you find yourself wishing her every success in her increasingly bizarre schemes and personal entanglements. It is written with panache and flows along dragging you into her world with ease. A most enjoyable book.
