Hollywood Scandals

Ladies and Gentlemen.... Here is the cover for my book, The Mammoth Book of Hollywood Scandals, coming October 2013......

Excuse me for shouting, but I am proud and happy to say that my Carole Lombard book now has an amazing and fabulous final title.

After Swing High, Swing Low turned out to be a rugby song, I knew I'd have to put my thinking cap on and decide again.  Well tonight I was chatting with my author friend Lyndsy and she suggested...

Wait for it.....


What do you think?  I absolutely love it.  Twentieth Century was one of Carole's films, plus she was a very forward thinking and modern lady for her time and so the title fits Miss Lombard perfectly.  I am absolutely thrilled to pieces to finally have a title I am truly happy with.


Now back to work to get this biography finished!!!

Marilyn's Footsteps

My book, 'Marilyn's Footsteps' is still on sale. It is a book filled with addresses and background on the places Marilyn lived, worked, played, ate, and much more!

Carole and Co

The Carole and Co website has done a piece about the Carole Lombard biography, which can be seen by clicking the link below, along with some nice photos of Carole too:

Please note, the cover of my Marilyn book that can be seen in the feature, is not actually the one used in the published version.  This was a very early version of the proposed 2007 cover, so don't panic if you see it and think it is a whole different book - it isn't. :-)

Also, I've had lots of feedback about the proposal title of my book, 'Carole Lombard: Swing High, Swing Low.'  Some people love it, while others have said it is also the title of a rugby song (which I did not know previously.)  Of course I chose the words Swing High Swing Low because of Carole's film of the same name, but perhaps if it has too close an association with rugby, I may have to change.

Do you have any ideas for a great title?  If so, leave a comment here.  I'd love to hear from you!!

Changeling... And Christine Collins

Here is the trailer of an amazing film, and the lady at the heart of the story - Christine Collins - is featured in my Hollywood Scandals book. 

I often have a romantic idea of what 1920s Los Angeles was like, but the story of Christine Collins shows that evil has always existed, no matter what era.... If you haven't seen this film, I truly consider it a 'must see.'
