Weekend Treat is in the same vein as The Bank Manager , which I featured here just about a year ago, Art Class, and the forthcoming Eton Mess.
Tell us a bit more, Andrew.
All these stories include a cool brunette and her friend, a flightier blonde. I wanted a change from putting the duo in the stressful situations of my usual horror stories, and to let them have some fun. So, Kerry-Jane and Amy were born. They are two PhD students studying archaeology in a fictional university in a town somewhere near London. Most of my erotica centers around Kerry-Jane, although ‘Weekend Treat’ is a little different. Kerry-Jane and Amy have cameo appearances while the story’s ‘star’ is Rachel, their supervisor.
You're very prolific, Andrew. And versatile. How did you come to write this story?
Weekend Treat follows on from a full-length novel I wrote (‘The Door into War’), featuring the same main character – Rachel McKenzie, an academic archaeologist. In the novel Rachel, who is in her early thirties, is worried she might be too old to attract a decent man. It was a theme the novel didn’t let me develop, and this story addresses that.
Is this book part of a series?
Yes and no. I’ve written four erotic shorts ‘starring’ the same group of characters, but they’re definitely not a planned series. In fact, I’ve always shied away from calling them a series because I write them irregularly and when I want to, and I don’t want to pressurize myself into feeling I have to produce any more.
