Excerpt

ardeur de courir ?
Perfide ! si du moins, à ton devoir fidèle,
Tu veillais pour orner quelque tête nouvelle !
L'espoir d'un juste gain consolant ma langueur
Pourrait de ton absence adoucir la longueur.

Arme aujourd'hui ton bras en faveur d'une église ?
Où vas-tu cher époux, est-ce que tu me fuis ?

Quoi ! d'un oeil sans pitié vois-tu couler mes larmes ?
Au nom de nos baisers jadis si plein de charmes,
Si mon coeur, de tout temps facile à tes désirs,
N'a jamais d'un moment différé tes plaisirs ;
Si pour te prodiguer mes plus tendres caresses,
Je n'ai point exigé ni serments, ni promesses ;
Si toi seul à mon lit enfin eus toujours part ;
Diffère au moins d'un jour ce funeste départ .

This makes him a busy man indeed, but we did manage to catch up with him to find out more about his novel, Nevermore, his fascination with history and some of his most unique travel experiences.
