of the top supermodels of the ’90s. She recently launched her premiere novel,
The Velvet Rose, which quickly became a best seller.

terrific fast-paced summer read. It is a blend of Almost Famous meets Reality
Bites and Spinal Tap. Once you start this book you won’t want to put it down.
It is an Amazon Editor Pick of best books.
The novel takes you on a roller coast ride through the early
nineties. The lead character Scarlet, a painter, and high fashion model finds
herself working in some of the world’s most famous fashion capitals. As her adventure continues, she meets Johnny of The
Westies, an up-and-coming band on the cusp of superstardom. What ensues is an
unhinged ride of a novel following the audacious lead female protagonist as she
navigates her life through fame, addiction, infidelity, and all the ups and

history. A riveting and heartfelt journey of figuring out one’s own path and
