About the Author

Melanie Blake was a music manager and talent agent before becoming a novelist. At twenty-one she was working at the BBC's iconic Top of the Pops show, and by twenty-seven she had created her own agency. Her music clients have sold 100 million records between them, and her acting clients include Emmy and BAFTA award-winners from Coronation Street, EastEnders, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and Dynasty. Melanie Blake is known within the entertainment industry as the Queen Of Soaps, having represented more leading actresses from long running TV dramas than any other agent in the UK. Her first novel, The Thunder Girls, was a Sunday Times top ten bestseller, and was recently turned into a successful play.
