Author: Liliana Anderson
Date Published: 10/22/12
Ok, I'll admit it - My mother in law used to be a sex worker. It's something that she has confided in few people outside her immediate family until me. We are polar opposites in many ways but we get each other - as a result I have become the confidante in her life which is how this series has been born.
In 1989, Angelien was 32 when she made the decision to enter a brothel to help support herself and her two sons. She quickly became the most popular girl there with her Kathleen Turner looks and her excellent 'acting' skills.
Confidante: The Brothel is a collection of Angelien's most memorable stories of her month working in the brothel.
This is a biography about friendship, discovery and of course sex.
Angelien was aware that she was taking a big leap from being a woman who liked to have a lot of sex to being a sex worker. As she ventured towards Laura’s car, she
knew there was no going back. This was it. Her life was about to change, fingers crossed, for the better.
Nerves caused the two women to be fairly quiet during their drive to the brothel for
their interview. They had been told to enter through a side door where the office was. There, they were greeted by a tall lady with dyed red hair and heavy makeup, wearing a fitted black skirt and a floral silk blouse. She appeared to be in her forties and introduced herself as Rebecca. She stepped aside and motioned for Laura and Angelien to take a seat opposite her desk.
“You are both very lovely looking girls, although I was only expecting one of you,"
Rebecca said while eyeing them both up and down. Laura opened her mouth to explain, but Rebecca held up her hand and shook her head. “We are always looking for new girls, so this is a happy surprise. I am sure that you will both be very popular here.”
Australian author of Confidante: The Brothel - Lilliana is a wife, mother of 4 and friend to many.
She lives a relatively quiet life in suburban Melbourne and spends most of her spare time writing the Confidante series as well as a racey drama of love and loss with the working title ‘What Might Have Been’.
