Almost Famous meets Reality Bites and Spinal Tap in this compelling and often injected with humor, page turning novel. In the early nineties, Scarlett, a painter and high fashion model, finds herself working in some of the world’s most infamous fashion capital. As her adventure continues, she meets Johnny of The Westies, an up-and-coming band on the cusp of superstardom. What ensues is an unhinged ride of a novel following Scarlett as she navigates her life through fame, addiction, infidelity, and all the ups and downs of dating a legendary musician from one of the biggest rock bands in history.  A page-turning, holding nothing back, front row seat of fun debut.
