‘A dark humorous short story collection bursting with surprises.’
Enter a world where Stars, champions, celebrities, and winners dazzle you to death.
An aging celebrity is desperate to hit the headlines again.
Astride the bonnet of a magenta-coloured Rolls-Royce, with its Flying Lady mascot tastefully sticking out from her crotch… “That’s our Annabel, true to form! Smiling to camera with the most expensive ten-inches she could find stuck between her legs!”
Once the darling of the tabloids and celeb weeklies, Annabel misses the headlines… but she’ll soon fix that with a spectacular jaw-dropping snapshot of self-delusion! And that’s just for openers.
After a burned out teenage swim champion tells it like it is, all manner of nutty Rock Stars, Back up singers, teen idols and Classic Soul Stars strut their stuff for you.
Scamming Vegas is always a high stakes game, but this off-the-wall High Roller gives it his own bizarre shot. And then, after the time-warp mayhem of “First Date with The Killer”, a new actor in town gets his first taste of Hollywood with his old Aussie Star mate’s latest fandango.
This offbeat short story collection tempts you with an entertaining and at times gobsmacking glimpse inside the strange lives of the bizarre crew who people fame and infamy. But be warned, addiction to celebrity can take a nasty turn and notoriety has the habit of becoming deadly.

Kit James was born in Kent in England and now lives with his wife in regional Australia.
His career in advertising was the perfect breeding ground for the kind of books he writes today, in which he enjoys taking a humorous tilt at corporate greed and the vanity of celebrity.
Kit’s favourite series is a three-book, Classic good-time Rock ‘n Roll comic crime caper – The Dinosaur Rocks series. Titles: Scama-Lama Ding Dong; Kissa-Billy Reboot, and the almost finished, trouser-busting finale, Glittasaurus Rex.
In between sips of wine and good food, Kit also writes little gems of dark humour nastiness about show biz, stars and fans, in his Deadly Short Reads series. The titles are: Paparatz; Fan Fatale; and Bite The Bullet.
