I always thought I wanted Historical Fiction.

Thought.

Damn. What I wouldn't give for a punchy political satire right now.

Who said a Historical Fiction couldn't also be a political satire? TONS of fodder in history for a blend like that, I think. Big smile

Actually, the basis of the word "plumber" is latin - relating to someone who works with lead. Going back to Roman times...
Why not set your piece in ancient Rome, make the main character a plumber trying to solve a problem or devise some "new" plumbing method, and have the whole thing go awry when... someone... invades. If you wanted to infuse PolSat into it, the invaders might be in need of "the facilities," only to have plumber guy tell them they are for Roman citizen only.

Another chance to stretch as a writer as I have never written a mystery.
