Meaghan Wilson Anastasios

Screenwriter and bestselling author of 'The Honourable Thief', 'The Emerald Tablet', and 'The Water Diviner'.

Multiple problems, to be honest.

So, you’re writing along, minding your own business, when out of nowhere, the opportunity to describe … er, how to put this?… an intimate scene pops up (no pun intended). Being a ‘no holds barred’ kinda person, I dive in, literarily speaking (no typo – literarily is the word I was going for).

Writing said scene is not an issue. The problems come later.

Problem no. 1: “Hey, mum! When can I read your book?”… CIA-level redaction ensues.

Problem no. 2: Not something I ever envisaged, but by all reports, such passages relayed on audio books while driving to work can be a little, ah, distracting.

And problem no. 3: if you know me personally, try looking me in the eye 👁 after you’ve read it. Yeah. Those are pictures you don’t need.

Important to remember – I’m a teller of stories and a person with a fairly active imagination. I make stuff up – it’s not necessarily inspired by personal experience… well, not all of it, anyway 🙄.

So, for those of you who’d rather not know where my mind sometimes takes me, in my new novel, The Emerald Tablet, you’d be advised to avoid the following pages: 118 – 121 and 375 – 377.

Oh, and you might like to skip over the first half of page 12 as well. Don’t say I didn’t warn you! 😜
