‘Life and Death’. . . In the Literary Sense
Disclaimer: Before you flag me for inappropriate content, or turn me into the local law enforcement. . . reflect on the title of this post. No, I'm not on a rampage – there will be no coverage of me, running amok, being chased by RCMP with butterfly nets and tranquilizing darts. I'm elbow deep in writing a series of novels, and a prominent character just died. The investigators will conclude that it was natural causes, so I'll get away with it. . . I left clues, but they all point to someone else.
Just to remind you – I am writing a book, and my actions don't translate into the 'real world'.
