Jude works at a Library in Slough. While stacking some books on a shelf she notices an attractive man at a computer terminal. They make eye contact. She blushes and looks away. When she looks again he has gone. During closing time she walks pass the computer terminal and notices that the man has left his USB attached to the computer. Instead of handing it in she takes it home, and when she connects she is shocked at what she sees. She investigates further with her neighbour Riz that leads to a bizarre set of circumstances.
The spark for Stealing came in late 2014 in rainy Paris traveling in a taxi to a cinema. I noticed someone had left a USB on the back seat. I picked it up and wondered what was on it. Curiosity is a killer I felt the need to be nosey, but being the good citizen I handed it to the taxi driver, unlike our lead character Jude who decided to take a different approach and it opened another experience. It played on me, what if I had taken it. What was on it, who’s was it? This experience instigated me to write Stealing.
