X. W. Kavanagh
X. W. Kavanagh is the pseudonym of the exciting new author of The Circle: Freelancing with Freud, which features the unlikely but dynamic pairing of Will, the Cajun fortunate son who escapes the bayous, and Dominique, the intriguing French-Moroccan enchantress of Bedouin mystique.
Will’s alter ego also escaped humble Southern roots, traveled the world, discovered love and tragedy and then lived to write about it. Having lived inside the bureaucratic framework as a government mule, he shares searing insights into survival and cunning from within the maddening mosaic.
So what’s Will’s alter ego like for real? Not surprisingly, he sees life exactly the way Will Kavanagh does; totally unapologetic about his roots or his opinions. He’s a straight shooter who calls ‘em like he sees ‘em, and doesn’t abide fools willingly. Does he exist on moral quicksand? It totally depends on your point of view. As Kavanagh is wont to describe a moral dilemma, ‘if you don’t mind, it don’t matter.’
Does this get him across the breakers with people from time to time? You bet, but you’ll never have to guess how he feels about something. Especially women, with his doggedly heterosexual brunt, but you must endeavor to treat all people with dignity. Do we sometimes fail? Again, Kavanagh might say, ‘let he who is without sin cast the first stone.’
I’m a real believer that it’s the journey, not the destination that makes life most interesting. Our experiences make us who we are, so the more exciting they are the more robust the description of the moment is enabled. Will this perhaps insult the decencies of some readers? It’s just the difference between people, but I make every attempt to limit the damage to mere affronts, as opposed to indictments.
I certainly hope you enjoy reading about Will and Dominique and their Circle of Love as much as I’ve enjoyed writing about them. Will’s journey through the wilderness of work and play will certainly keep you entertained, hopefully into the wee hours of the night—which is when much of it was written!
I am now working on the second installment of Will Kavanagh’s adventures, and I sincerely hope that you’ll join me down the next path of the yellow brick road. Stay tuned, and please feel free to contact me about your reactions, impressions or even ideas about where you’d like to see Will Kavanagh go to next. From where I sit, it’s only an airplane ride away!
