As AUTHORS I’m asking you to start your own #TenDayAuthorSpotlight so we can be a community that supports each other.

The Cover

About the book:

The Grass Isn’t Greener on the Other Side: Heiresses have always been viewed with eyes of envy. They were the ones for whom the cornucopia had been upended, showering them with unimaginable wealth and opportunity. However, through intimate historical biographies, Women of Means shows us that oftentimes the weaving sisters saved their most heart-wrenching tapestries for the destinies of wealthy women.

Happily Never After: From the author of Behind Every Great Man, we now have Women of Means, vignettes of the women who were slated from birth―or marriage―to great privilege, only to endure lives which were the stuff Russian tragic heroines are made of. They are the nonfictional Richard Corys―those not slated for happily ever after.

Women of Means is bound to be a non-fiction best seller, full of the best biographies of all time. Some of the women whose silver spoons rusted include:

  • Almira Carnarvon, the real-life counterpart to Lady Cora of Downton Abbey
  • Liliane Bettencourt, whose chemist father created L’Oreal… and was a Nazi collaborator
  • Peggy Guggenheim, who had an insatiable appetite for modern art and men
  • Nica Rothschild, who traded her gilded life to become the Baroness of Bebop
  • Jocelyn Wildenstein, who became a cosmetology-enhanced cat-woman
  • Ruth Madoff, the dethroned queen of Manhattan
  • Patty Hearst, who trod the path from heiress… to terrorist

The Cover

The Blurb :

Francesca Bright lives with her father, a widower, developing her talent as a pianist but little awareness of the world beyond her home or the valley in which it lies.

Invited to perform as a pianist for the local elite, Fran must battle her nerves and shyness as she discovers a livelihood and a wider world, sumptuous and sophisticated, in which she comes to feel the attention of men who appreciate her as a woman: even when they shouldn’t.

Her father insists he knows best, but how well can he understand the misgivings and modesty of a young woman who missed most of the advice and guidance only a mother can give? Fran’s female friends are no
substitute, even before she finds she has won the heart of a married man, before her heart goes out to dying man, and before she realises her father has become a suspicious man.

Cover

Blurb:

Meet Jess. Married to Pete, mother to five year old Davina, rather partial to a glass of wine, not really much of a clue about what to do with herself now her daughter is at school.


Making her way through modern life is no breeze for Jess, what with meddlesome in-laws, snobbish fellow parents, disapproving teachers and a husband who seems to have misplaced his sense of fun. This isn’t really what she signed up for.


When she finally starts to lose the baby weight and regain her long-lost self-confidence, Jess is definitely up for embracing the lighter side of life, be it getting lost in a Prague snowstorm or heading to a strip club with strangers.


She just needs the world to go along with her spontaneity. Not much chance of that…

About the Author :

Born and raised in West Yorkshire, aye up, I left school at sixteen and went to beauty college to become a makeup artist (in truth, I just hoped to get a ticket to Hollywood so I could marry Brad Pitt).

Since that didn’t work, after dabbling in some modelling, I worked as a legal secretary, sat some exams and, eight years later, qualified as a solicitor.

I met the man of my dreams, (I knew he was Mr Right as he made my bowels move). We have been married for fifteen years, live near York and have two amazing children
