Welcome to this week’s edition of Lisa Burton Radio, the only show that brings you the characters from the books you love. I’m your host, Lisa the robot girl, and with me today is John Williams, not the famous composer, but an author. “Welcome to the show, John.”
“Thanks and Wow. I must say it’s a pity you’re a robot, you look gorgeous.”
“My bio says you’re a frustrated author. I think you’ll be in good company among our listeners. What kind of stories do you write?”
“I wrote what I thought an interesting action/adventure story, but the lack of sales says otherwise. I attended a book launch in London hoping to find a publishing agent to represent me. Although unsuccessful, my dismay turned into incredible joy. While I sat at the bar drowning my sorrows, to my astonishment, Sally Johnston a famous and I might add a gorgeous looking author came up and started talking with me.”
“Sounds like she struck a chord with you. What kind of books does she write?”
“Hooo-boy. I’ll bet she’s a fun one.”
“That’s for sure. I first thought she might be of help with my writing. To my astonishment, she invited me to join her for lunch. Although twelve years older, I found myself attracted to her and she with me. After a day out together, I was both shocked and delighted when she invited me to spend the weekend with her at her house in Guildford. That was a weekend I will never forget. It was the start of what became a torrid love affair. We later went on holiday to Thailand where we had a fabulous time. It was here that to her surprise, I went down on one knee and proposed to her.”
“Sounds pretty serious to me. It also sounds better than a few more sales.”
“The possible increase in books sales is one thing, but our engagement turned into a complete nightmare.”
“A nightmare? How?”
“There’s this guy, Antonio, he and Tara were once lovers until he cheated on her and hit her. She told me all about him. I thought him a figure from the past so did not think any more about him. I never realized I was making a huge mistake in thinking so. However, I had a couple of life-threatening car incidents and was lucky not to have suffered more severe injuries than I did. Anyway, after returning home from our holiday in Thailand and planning our engagement party, I had to leave Sally and go up to London. While there, she disappeared. It seems a large Mercedes car with foreign plates was seen in her street around the time she vanished. I may be wrong, but I can only think of Antonio as the one most likely to have taken her. He wanted her back, lives in Italy, so the car with foreign plates could well be his.”
“Have you told any of this to the authorities?”
“Of course, It was my policeman friend Paul whose enquiries revealed the news about the Mercedes. He had the Italian police go to his villa up in the Alps to see if she was there. This was a waste of time. The Italian police believe Antonio to be a highly respected businessman. He also gives them generous donations whenever they have a charity event. Despite his denials, I feel sure Antonio is behind the disappearance. Like me, all her friends are worried stiff about her. They had thought she was somewhere with me.”
“So what are you going to do?”
“I’m going to Italy to check for myself if she is there or not. I have to find her before I go crazy with worry.”
“I’m sure I speak for all of our listeners today when I wish you the best outcome. I’m so sorry for your situation and hope you can help. Any last comments for our listeners today.”
“Just that no matter what it takes, I will find Sally and bring her home. She is my life and soulmate.”
“You can read all about John in the novel A Dangerous love Affair, by Colin Guest. I’ll post all the deets on the website after we go off the air.
“You can help John and Colin out today by using those sharing links at the end of the post. For Lisa Burton Radio, I’m Lisa Burton.”
