It takes Ms Rohanne Bulbecker, publishing dynamo from New York, to discover the truth when she comes to London to persuade Janice Gentle to Get Sexy . . .

Plump, virginal Janice Gentle reluctantly writes her delicate romances with one goal in view: to make enough money to find the man she loved and lost twenty years ago. Before she begins each book she must find her characters from among the travellers on a morning tube. But what really happens to them when they leave the train? And why does Janice's agent encourage her to live like a recluse?

Author bio:

Mavis Cheek was born and grew up in Wimbledon. She failed her eleven plus (twice!) and was put in the B stream of a secondary modern school, where she tried, completely unsuccessfully, to learn to become a good and dutiful secretary. Instead, she left school at sixteen with no qualifications and immediately began working for Editions Alecto, the contemporary art publishers, where she worked with British and American artists such as David Hockney, Allen Jones, Bridget Riley, Patrick Caulfield and George Segal and was part of the team running Alecto's gallery in Albemarle Street, at the heart of the London art market. After twelve happy years at Editions Alecto, she left to go to Hillcroft College for Women from where she graduated in Arts with distinction. She then had her daughter, Bella, and began her writing career in earnest, being blessed in this by her complete lack of qualifications to do anything else. Journalism and travel writing were her first successes. .
