Q: If you were going to write a book, what would you call it and what would it be about?
I am actually writing a book…a novel…and it is called “40SOMETHING.”
“40SOMETHING” is a Trinbagonian-inspired work of fiction, sautéed in seductive herbs and spices for a raunchy, sizzling hot, mouth-watering experience. It is a compelling story which takes an up-close-and-personal look at the character, ‘Fortie Pickford’ and some of her contemporaries who are all on the thresholds of mid-life crises. It depicts their relationship innuendos, their secret fears, uncertainties and sexual indiscretions, for all to see. Set in the small twin-island Republic of Trinidad and Tobago, the novel begins with a dark journey into the bowels of a mega-continent to meet forty-something year-old Celia Obasango, Peter Okuku and Bobby Kroomes. To connect the dots, the story continues to unravel in Trinidad and Tobago, revealing a systemic plot of lies, deceit and infidelity skilfully interwoven into the narrative fabric of the novel. But be warned…it’s like a roti and a red Solo, but with plenty, plenty pepper!
