Writing a best seller on Bullshit.
If you had one book in you, what would it be about? Who would be in it?
Can we bash out the bones of a new age hero book?
I had this Idea to base a book on a true story and a true character as the hero, but add a bit of time travel and make him a bit of an overweight bullshitting crook too.
Group Captain Adrian Matthews ( motto Tigers for Kids ) A bit like the scarlet pimpernel but with out the riches, he travels through time in brief spurts and pretends to help people but ends up just taking all the cash and doing a runner to another time zone, only thing is his time machine the dodgy old yellow tiger moth bi plane cannot travel more than a couple of months forwards or backwards in time. And it has to be in the air to do it.
How do you figure this story could go?

A Yellow Tiger Moth.
Our Hero, Adrian Matthews, was born in 1910, outside Snitterfield in England. His father a British Fighter pilot was killed in the Great war when he crached into a Graff Zeplin in a bank of cloud, causing the great machine to burst and burn, He was awarded the Queen Victoria Cross for giving his life away.
His mother hit the bottle after his fathers death and sank into a deep depression, Adrian and his little sister were taken in at the local catholic orphanage run by the local priest. Adrian Joined the Royal air force in 1929 where he goaded one of his fellow flying chums ( Douglas) to do low level aerobatics, which he did, crashed and lost both his legs.
During the war with Adolf Adrian Matthews received the DFC 3 times and was downed in Egypt with engine trouble. he landed near a ancient obelisk in the desert. he was poking round it when a trap door opened and he fell in. Inside he found what looked like a gold fob watch, he promptly stole in and bagged it in his pocket,
he was picked up by a pilot called Tyrone, in a yellow tiger moth that had spotted the crashed spitfire and he was taken back to Cairo. On the way he pulled out his newly acquired gold thing and tried to open it, It . there was a flashing crackling all around him and the watch vanished into the dashboard and became one with the tiger moth.
Angrily Adrian tried to prize it back out and as he did so the aircraft experienced a temporal shift.
Fellow bullshitter to write the next bit..........
