Role Description

The Novelist: (Lead) a seductive erotic novelist who thoroughly enjoys and exercises her control over younger men. She's less of an artist than an architect who bases her world around the things she can calculate and manipulate. She has a quick wit and a dry, intellectually informed sense of humor.

do with your time?
