‘We were just wondering,’ the blonde nurse said, ‘if you were in a rock group or something…’
There was a bit of a stir from the cubicles and two of the young nurses appeared and shimmied across.
‘We reckon you were the group appearing with Doc Holliday and the Cards, in Dunstable,’ the small nurse said, excitedly.
‘Yeah, dead sexy you were and we tried to see you afterwards but the bouncers wouldn’t let us near…’ the darker haired one giggled.
‘That was us,’ Josh beamed. ‘And I’m gutted that you couldn’t meet us after the gig. We could have given you – um – our autographs.’
‘We can still do autographs,’ Zac grinned, ‘in exchange for phone numbers.’
If you enjoyed Stella’s diary extract from March 17th. 1969 from Only One Woman, why not buy your copy – paperback or for Kindle – and trip back to the UK music scene of 1968/69 – with Stella, Renza, Scott and his band, Narnia’s Children, and discover what the band was doing in A&E during the wee small hours.
To learn more about our novel and the inspiration behind it, pop over and listen in to my Podcast interview on The Authors Show, where I am chatting about the late 1960s: the music, fashion, love, the food, drink, perfumes, clubs, venues, and the bands and singers Narnia’s Children met along their journey to stardom.
I’ll be explaining how best-selling, award-winning Christina Jones and I came to write together, and just how our past is linked through music, love, and so much more.
I shall be reading a chapter from Renza’s diary, and her trip to London to dine at the Dorchester in Park Lane with her cousin, including her first visit to Carnaby Street – June 16th. 1968.
Guys love this book. Musicians can relate to the depiction of life on the road in the late 1960s – the venues, the gigs, the lack of food and a decent place to stay – whilst girls love the fashions, make-up, and their idols, such as Dusty Springfield, Cher, Jools Driscoll, Twiggy, Jean Shrimpton, Cathy McGowan, and Samantha Juste to mention a few.
This is an authentic tale of life on the road in a transit van with lipstick messages scrawled all over it, the girls following the bands they love, and the love-triangle involving a lead guitarist and a young unworldly girl, and a street-wise sassy young woman – and he loves them both.
Not only a love story, this novel gives the reader an insight into the lives of youngsters in the last years of the grooviest decade of the 20th century, and how social upheaval, the Cold War, and free-love changed everything and everyone forever.
READERS LOVE THIS CAPTIVATING TALE FROM JANE RISDON AND CHRISTINA JONES!
