An Ordinary Life
In the fictional British town of Minstell, American media mogul, Johnny Goldwyn, is intent on spearheading a new extension to his studio — a European branch, which will begin its inaugural startup in Britain. His first move is to seal a deal with King Elle, a rock star known throughout the United Kingdom for his flashy extravagance. Soon to follow are the contracts with Quincy Christian, Britain’s favorite “It” girl, as well as a life-changing acting deal with Inky Robin, an actor down on his luck. Eventually, the lustful temptations of celebrity will touch them all, trapping them in a web of deceit and murder. They are soon to be swept up in a tempest; one that will ensure that their lives remain as anything but ordinary.
The story is set in a fictionalized version of the 1960’s, touching on the temperamental nature of the entertainment industry, as well as the corrupting lure of fame. It focuses most intently on the music, as well as film and acting industry, touching as well on the fragile modeling scene. All come together in a glittery whirlwind, set atop undertones of the political unrest of the 60’s and the hysteria behind Communism. More complex than it seems, this novel is sure to shock you at every turn, veering left when you expect it to go right, and eventually dropping you off a ledge that you never even saw coming.
