LoveReading View on Wishful Thinking

An entertaining and surprising adventure, this shows that wishing can be dangerous as Kevin soon finds out after accidentally letting his wish list fall in the river. When Abandinus becomes his own personal god, Kevin’s life takes off in some unexpected directions. While much of what the god brings has its good side there are some aspects he’d very much rather be without!

Wishful Thinking Synopsis

It's just a regular trip for Kevin, and he comes back with just the regular sorts of things. Some local fudge, a scented candle for his mum ...and his own personal god. It's Abandinus, a little-known Celtic deity, who has suddenly found a new purpose in his eternal life-sorting out Kevin's. With a god on your side, everything's going to get a lot easier, isn't it? After all, a god can get stuff done. The trouble is, it's not always the kind of stuff Kevin has in mind ...

She could have done it otherwise. After many drama school rejections, National Service as a Pontin’s Bluecoat (where she became the spangle-clad assistant to a juggling unicyclist – frighteningly, there is photographic proof), a stint in cabaret and then singing in cheesy cover bands, Ali finally got a proper job in local newspapers before absconding to the BBC in the late 1990s. A bit of local radio presenting and producing followed ...
