There comes a point in the writing of any book, and especially in a series, when you need to step away for a few days or weeks in order to see the bigger picture. With “Out of Egypt”, I’d reached a place where I couldn’t see the wood for the trees. So for the last month or so, I took time out to write a short Sense8 fanfic about two of my favourite characters, Will and Wolfgang. It’s turned out to be a very enlightening experience – I discovered things about both boys I never would have suspected, and in the process limbered up my writing muscles ready to plunge back in to Dark and Alice’s world. It’s close to completion, now, this second book. But in the meantime, I hope my fellow Sensies enjoy this little buddy-piece, Revolver.
