Blue Zinnia, wow, what a lovely message to read. Thanks very much indeed.
As Persolaise, I write only about perfume. There is some other other writing under my real name, but I'd rather maintain my anonymity here, if you don't mind. Are you aware that I've got my own blog: http://persolaise.blogspot.com
And as for a novel... let's see. I might have one or two ideas up my sleeve ;-)
Persolaise, you're a find as a writer! Just the right amount of highly perceptive snark; more would be bitchery and less wouldn't be as funny. Do you write on other subjects, and when (please!) may we expect a novel?
