is the man who wrote "Pull Tab to Open".

- I am his favourite author.

- You saying it's none of my business?

Let me tell you, Jack is not the marrying kind.

I am worried. You're the girl who

never gets a book back late to the library.

You are three months past your deadline.

What gives? Un scotch, double.

My heartjust isn't in it. Romance

just doesn't seem real to me any more.

Real? You don't write "real". You write

about people that sail off into the sunset.

- And the next day when the sun comes up?

- There is no next day in romance.

Stop confusing real life

with a romantic novel.

- Joanie, just finish it.

- I can't.

After 17 books,

I don't know how it ends any more.

Then permit me to tell you.

It doesn't end.

It only begins anew

when you journey down the Nile with me.

- Have you got the right woman?

- No.

My name is Omar Khalifa and I have travelled

- You sent me the flowers.

- They pale by your beauty.

Oh, Mary!

- I read about you.

- Yes, I know. Time magazine.

Well, I'm afraid the Western press

cannot understand the spirit of my vision.

You are a writer. You can understand.

So, Joan Wilder,

you must come and write my story.

I only write romance novels.

Yes. And you haven't finished the one

you're working on right now.

You are a gifted storyteller.

You create heroes in a world of cynics.

Journey down the Nile with me

and I'll give you a chance to record history.

- Come. We must leave today.

- Joanie!

In just four nights I will become Emperor,

and you will have the exclusive story.

- They have emperors on the Nile?

- They do now.

Oh, shit.

So now what are we celebrating?

- The Nile!

- Oh, the Nile.

We've been invited to Africa.

Jack Colton, Omar Khalifa.

How do you do?

He's asked me - me - to write his story.
