If you catch me writing notes in my jotter, I could be planning a death...real or fiction, it matters not.
Excerpt from the London Evening Telegraph
Heiress in the Colonies! by Ms. Temperance Post.
‘It has been reported to me, by a little bird, that Lady Edwina Uffington-Smythe has removed herself to the Colonies after allegedly marrying a colonial savage, against her families wishes.
Apparently, she amuses herself by putting pen to paper creating vicious and callous murder mysteries, involving wealthy families.
Some suggest her books come from deep in her wounded heart, due the tragic loss of her entire family. Others think the books contain the truth behind her inheritance.
It certainly makes one wonder about the real reason for her move to the colonies. Was it to escape the afore mentioned scandal? As reported by my good self, during the terrible loss of one of London’s most beloved and Godly families.
One thing is for certain, no manor of man nor woman of good standing should read Lady Uffington-Smythe’s books, for they are distasteful and implore a visit from unholy nightmares.’
