The story of how a music loving, budding journalist from a Chicago suburb ended up in London, first as a journalist writing about her heroes (Stones, Clapton, Rod Stewart ’74-’77 ), before spending 3 years writing an authorised biography of Keith Richards, working for almost 20 years at a major record label (Warners) first writing press releases (on a typewriter driven by Tip Ex), then as a press officer for heavy metal bands (bus up to Donnington Festival featured coffee, croissants and the much more popular sulfate). Then taking on an unknown girl from Detroit (Madonna) and telling Smash Hits ‘you don’t have to run the piece if the single doesn’t chart’, eventually running that press office and working with a myriad of stars, including Guns ‘n Roses, Elvis Costello, REM, Motley Crue, Robert Plant, Prince, the list is endless.

A time capsule for the last four decades (+) of life seen through the eyes and ears of music, and one woman’s powerful story of finding her way in a man’s world.
