I’m working on a story about an over-educated, over-analyzing professional real estate broker who tries to jump-start her private life by committing murder and getting a sex-change operation. Her mind is sharp, but her heart is darkened by depravity. Out of pettiness, she makes people laugh, and out of vanity it disgraces her. She cons people out of generosity and she’s pleased with herself for doing it, but she has no respect for suffering. She attempts to cover-up her crimes of punishment and passion with a new identity before taking her life-partner on a lover’s get-away jaunt to sunny Tahiti. The story is called “Tropical Depression”.
