Vanessa Wu was born in Fuzhou, China, where her parents worked in the Communist Army Hospital. She educated herself on a diet of foreign literature, some of it quite respectable, including nearly everything written by Jane Austen, W. Somerset Maugham, and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
She graduated from Fudan University in Shanghai and travelled in Asia and Europe where she met many interesting men before completing her sexual and academic education at Westminster University, London.
She works for a law firm in London and lives close to Greenwich Park where she can often be seen talking to people with dogs. If she had a dog of her own it would be a Beagle and she would call him Billy. If she writes enough stories and enough people buy them maybe she can give up working at that stuffy old law firm and stay at home with Billy instead, going for long walks in the park in the morning and having long, sensual daydreams in the afternoon.
Until then, she joins thousands of commuters every day on the Docklands Light Railway and spends many an idle hour anticipating her next erotic encounter.

There are a lot of good indi authors out there, but very rarely do you come across an exceptionally well written story. This is such a story. This is the first work of Ms Wu's that I have read but, if this is any indication of the rest of her work, I'll be buying all her books.
The writing style is excellent and the story flows very well. But she makes you care about the protagonists, which is difficult to do in a short story. Unlike a lot of short story's (particularly erotic shorts) which tend to be a little one dimensional, this story is defiantly much deeper.
Totally recommended, 5 stars for writing and 5 chillies for heat ;-)

What a deliciously, flavorful, taste of Ms. Wu’s talent—no puns intended. (Who the hell am I kidding?) After a couple of helpings of her work (The other was The Swimming Pool.) I simply must add my name to her favorite author list.
