"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have ecome something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr
"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life." Hilary Mantel

Lola (Guest Blogger) in Charge
The People went away--back to Lobster Land--giving me, Lola, the chance to take over this blog.
A brief introduction. I’m the beautiful alpha bitch.
I'm the first to wake up every morning, first to be fed at mealtimes, first to pass through any door, first to bark at strangers.
I’m physically symmetrical, in colouring and markings, which makes me a superior being. I’m aesthetically perfect. Highly photogenic, too.
Shadow is bouncy and playful and cuddly and friendly—-and in my opinion a bit of a weenie, easily bossed around. I’m aloof, except around people I adore. Because I adore my People, and they treat me like a queen, I do what they tell me.
Yes, I have a lot of attitude. But I’m also exceptionally sweet and loving.
And beautiful. Did I mention that?
