Jane Mauret

Comedy, obsession, religion, cocktails. True confession - no novel.





Doing time on a two square kilometre rock called Malè in Maldives, home to 125,000 Muslims.

She wanted to holiday in Maldives after a chance remark overheard in 1987.
19 years later (and a fully paid up binge drinker suffering from love obsession) she aims to instead be LIVING in Maldives by her 50th birthday - and makes it with one day to spare.

EXCERPTS
"My new friend is Deo Charles Lemali; he is from Lesotho but lives in Paris. Our 'relationship' is all of eight minutes old when he suddenly declares, "Jane, I have seen you, you have impressed; I want you to be my lover." He is leaving for India on Sunday and will give me a mobile to keep in touch. Then he outlines the travel programme he has worked out for us."

"Some amusing signage:
A florist’s front window: Say it With Flowers … Cactus.
A men’s clothes shop: Natural Nobody.
A grocery store is the sinister: Fresh Memorial.
A house called the siren-like: Boiling Fish."

Hello, Elle The relationships are set up right from the staff and we instantly wonder where this is going to go. We learn a lot about the characters from their dialogue and in the case of the MC, her thoughts. I have not read this genre before (!) but I am guessing this is how the set-ups begin. ... view book

Hello, Neil I found the voice to be a stream of consciousness, making it easy to follow as it was very smooth. You have injected humour which is always a bonus. I found I could picture your characters in my mind’s eye which is quite a feat to achieve just by dialogue. It did feel a little like... view book

Hello, Gavin I'm sorry to be blunt but if a writer's work is rejected it is usually because it is not up to the mark. Just because we put thousands of words down on paper, even if we have a great idea, does not make us writers. In your screenplay your stage directions are far too lengthy/detailed.... view book
