I have also co-written a stand alone novel Lost In Crazytown with my husband Ján Bryndza. It’s very different to the Coco Pinchard series, and its based on some of my experiences working as a writer in Los Angeles.
It’s a dark satire about a young guy who comes to Hollywood and through a chance meeting, gets a job working as a personal assistant to a movie star. Her career is on the rocks and he finds himself caught up in the crazy world she inhabits living in the Hollywood Hills… As I say, it’s very dark, read it if you dare!
When Filip leaves London for a life in Los Angeles, he dreams of being a celebrity stylist. But as the saying goes… be careful what you wish for.
Filip has barely settled into his apartment in the Hollywood Hills when he meets Derek and Hillary – a bizarre middle-aged gay couple in matching jumpers. They introduce him to their neighbour Veronica Madison – a movie star on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
She hires him to style her for a celebrity charity gala and soon Filip is pulled into the dark and hilarious world she inhabits, surrounded by the famous (and infamous) residents of the Hollywood Hills.
Within a few months, Veronica invites him to be her guest at the Oscars and events take on a much darker tone.
Filip faces a choice; should he dive into the murky waters of life in the Hollywood fast lane? Or should he choose happiness and return to the love of his life he left back home in London?
Lost In Crazytown is a dark satire from the writer of the smash-hit Coco Pinchard series…. If you choose to live life in the Hollywood fast lane, there’s a chance you could get run over!
