Welcome to Caron McKinlay, author of The Storytellers.
While we're waiting for your guest to arrive, Caron, can you tell us a little about your book?
It's about three women trapped between life and death who are forced to revisit their toxic relationships in order to unravel a haunting truth. Ronnie pushes the boundaries of her own sexuality to get Graham to commit to her. Nikki comes second to Giovanni’s gambling addiction. Mrs Hawthorne knows Charles will always love his first wife more than her. From the genteel parks of Edinburgh to the backstreets of Liverpool, from gaudy Blackpool to sultry Palermo, they share their stories. As the man who calls himself The Gatekeeper listens and decides their fate.
Who will you be joining you for cocktails and why? I've invited Nikki. She likes a good night out and I’d like to tell her a few home truths about Giovanni her boyfriend. He’s really not good enough for her and she’s so naive that she doesn’t see it.
What will they be wearing? Nikki will probably turn up in black little dress and high heels. She’ll think it makes her look sophisticated.
What will they order of the cocktail menu? Nikki will order a strawberry daiquiri and ask for a side order of shots.
How will they react if the waiter spills their cocktail over them? She will probably be fuming but apologize for being in the way.
What can they tell you that will probably make you stay for a second drink? She will tell me that she feels someone is watching her!
It looks like your guest has just arrived. Enjoy your cocktails!
