DRAMA QUEENS WITH LOVE SCENES

By

Kevin Klehr

 



BLURB:    
Close friends Allan and Warwick are dead. They're not crazy about the idea so to help them deal with this dilemma are Samantha, a blond bombshell from the 1950s, and Guy, an insecure angel. 

They are soon drawn into the world of theatre - Afterlife style, with all the bitchiness, back-stabbing and ego usually associated with the mortal world. 

Allan also has a secret. He has a romantic crush on his friend, Warwick, but shortly after confiding in his new angel pal, his love interest falls for the cock-sure playwright, Pedro.


Not only does Allan have to win the heart of his companion, he also has to grapple with the faded memory of how he actually died.

 

EXCERPT: 
The thought of my demise was hard enough to face, but this version of the Afterlife with no link back to concepts favored in religious texts, made it harder to accept. There was not an omnipotent being in sight. We had one angel surrounded by a cast from different eras of earth-bound time, going about their business with no qualms. And still, no one wanted to elaborate.  

“Heaven or Hell?” Warwick asked. 

“Perhaps Limbo, or maybe we’re just having a weird dream?” 

“Of course, Allan, at exactly the same time.” My friend winked at me. 

“Yeah maybe. Your wet-dream with Pedro and my, my...” 

“Your buddy-genre dream with an angel.” 

He made me smile. As he looked out at the garden again, a more believable explanation came to me. 

“Warwick, maybe I’m just in a coma, and somewhere near my hospital bed you’re talking to me, trying to wake me up.” 

“Allan, if I am talking to you from your hospital bed, how will I know you can hear me?” 

“Look, Warwick, I’m wiggling my toes.”  

My friend turned to see me lift my legs and shake both feet. 

“Allan, what if you’re covered by a blanket, and I can’t notice your toes?”  

“Don’t be silly, you’d notice my toes wiggling under the covers.” 

“Maybe there’s a serving tray or a hospital chart on the sheets?” 

I thrashed my legs more violently, just in case there was some truth in my theory. 

“Allan, you’re not in a coma.” 

“How can you be sure?” 

“Because from my point of view, I might be the one in a coma.”  

My legs stopped kicking.


 

AUTHOR INFORMATION: 

Kevin lives with his long-term partner in their humble apartment (affectionately named Sabrina), in Australia’s own ‘Emerald City,’ Sydney.

From an early age Kevin had a passion for writing, jotting down stories and plays until it came time to confront puberty. After dealing with pimple creams and facial hair, Kevin didn’t pick up a pen again until he was in his thirties. His handwritten manuscript was being committed to paper when his social circumstances changed, giving him no time to write. Concerned, his partner, Warren, snuck the notebook out to a friend who in turn came back and demanded Kevin finish his novel. It wasn’t long before Kevin’s active imagination was let loose again.

His longest running passion is a weekly radio program he produces with Warren for local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander station, Koori Radio. Since 2004 they have been discovering music, both new and old, and interviewing local artists and community leaders. Every Friday night, The Rhythm Divine is heard across Sydney and via the world wide web.

Kevin is currently at work on the sequel to Drama Queens with Love Scenes.
