If you were asked to spend a year living in a different location, where would you choose and why?
I think probably London, since there are many places in the British isles I would love to visit, either as day trips or with an overnight. I have internet friends on the Isles of Man and Jersey; my cover artist lives on the main island; I would love to take a side trip to Edinburgh, a city that has intrigued me for years. And this isn’t even touching on the wonders of London itself.
As a reader of classic mysteries and steampunk, I would like to see areas cited in both kinds of work. Of course I realize that many of the sites no longer exist, but I’m sure a certain Baker Street address has been preserved for posterity. And of course there’s the Tate and the British Museum, and Karl Marx’s grave. And don’t forget the new replica of Shakespeare’s theater, the Globe.
I hope the year abroad is paid for. I intend to be an expensive customer.
