When I write, I love to create really nice good guys that you can fall in love with from the beginning. By the same token, I try to create some really nasty bad guys whom you would never want to become friends with. Corbet is one of those people. He's fun to read about, but being his friend is social suicide. Outwardly, he is kind, friendly and smart, but don't turn your back on him, because he hides a dagger that's ready to to end your career with one swipe should you lose his favor. Take a look at this sarcastic excerpt featuring the bad guy himself!
The Imagination Stone
Corbet looked up and saw a very disappointed Tom standing by the front desk. “Tom!” he said and walked over to within arm’s reach. “I haven’t seen you in a month of Sundays!” Just before reaching Tom, he stopped. The expression on his face changed to one of twisted horror. “What in the world happened to you?” Corbet looked Tom up and down and his look changed to a very disgusted one. “I understand from my friend Roger here,” he said motioning to the gray haired man, “that he intended to meet with you. I happened to be making cold calls at this exact time and found that there was a time slot open. I’m so sorry you couldn’t make the meeting.” Then under his breath, “Not that it would have mattered.”
