The case of Princess Doe remains open today; after over 20 years of investigation, no one knows who she is or why she was murdered. But, in her book, Christie gives her a name and a story, in all its gruesome details. You can read more about Princess Doe and pick up a copy of the book here: http://www.whoisprincessdoe.com/ . It's a fast-paced read that's perfect for the beach or a train ride, but perhaps not right before bed. I made the mistake of reading Oryx & Crake before I went to sleep and had nightmares about the apocalypse every night. Lesson learned.
So, why am I jealous? I'm jealous because I have always dreamed of writing a book. But, the difference between Christie and me is that she actually did write a book, and I've mostly just thought about it. However, I have at least come up with a few solid chapter titles; for example, "Chapter 8: My Vagina is a Cave." Obviously, it's also going to be based on a true story. It will also contain a lengthy insert featuring many stunning glossy photos of Boo, such as this one:
So look forward to that. Also, look forward to waiting, since I've been talking about writing a book since I was 8.
