Of Sound Mind and Someone Else’s Body by William Quincy Belle

Wait a moment here. I think this author just discovered, or reminded us, of a way to cure all of society’s trouble, and he does it through laughters, which is the best way (read his biography, it’s one on the best I’ve ever read). It should be mandatory to spend a month as the kind of person each hates the most. Example: you’re a misogynist? Live one month as a woman. You’re a racist? One month as a person of (any) color. You hate – insert here any religion -? One month as a jew/ catholic/muslim or whatever.You hate homosexual? One month in their skin, literally. It would make a change that’s impossible to even grasp, wouldn’t it?

The book is Of Sound Mind and Someone Else’s Bodyby William Quincy Belle, a SciFi Romantic Comedy.

Alan Maitland is a successful businessman on his way up the corporate ladder. Life is good, but life is also full of the unexpected. A scientific experiment goes awry and Alan’s mind is transferred to the body of Hana Toussaint, a high-class escort. Suddenly, he must not only contend with a new identity, but with the eye-opening experience of living as a female: how to walk in high heels without falling; how to put on a bra without dislocating a shoulder; how to deal with makeup without poking out an eye; and how to get along in a society which in many ways is still male-dominated.

When Alan discovers that Hana has taken over his body, the two of them must work together to find the scientist who can reverse the experiment and give them back their respective lives. Along the way, they must cope with living as each other and learn what it’s like to be a member of the opposite sex. And as their adventure goes on, Alan the woman must figure out his growing feelings for Hana the man.

Alan faces the biggest challenge of his life which Hana sums up with one decisive question:

“Are you man enough to be a woman?”


About the Author

William Quincy Belle is just a guy. Nobody famous; nobody rich; just some guy who likes to periodically add his two cents worth with the hope, accounting for inflation, that $0.02 is not over evaluating his contribution. He claims that at the heart of the writing process is some sort of (psychotic) urge to put it down on paper and likes to recite the following, which so far he hasn’t been able to attribute to anyone: “A writer is an egomaniac with low self-esteem.” You will find Mr. Belle’s unbridled stream of consciousness floating around in cyberspace.

  1. Thank you for the shoutout. You recognized my goal to use fiction and humor to discuss important issues for all of us. As I’ve written elsewhere:

    I’m a native-born, Christian, heterosexual, white male.

    I’m not a woman. I have no idea what women go through in our society.

    I’m not black. I have no idea what a person of color must endure in our culture.

    I’m not gay. I have no idea what LGBTQ must deal with in our country.

    I’m not Muslim or a Jew. I have no idea what it’s like to practice a faith which is so obviously in the minority.

    I’m not an immigrant. I have no idea what somebody else may be trying to escape from in order to seek a better life.

    “Privilege is when you think something is not a problem because it’s not a problem to you personally.”

    To borrow from the 1960s hippies: Peace, Love, and Understanding.

    Thanks again for participating.

    All the best to you in your world. 🙂

    • I love that quote about privilege, it’s so true. We should all try to walk in someone else’s shoes, whoever we are and wherever/whatever we come from. Thank you for stopping by, and good luck with the tour!
