The Thunder Girls

Front Cover
Head of Zeus Ltd, Feb 4, 2021 - Fiction - 416 pages

Music brought them together.

Chrissie, Roxanne, Carly and Anita are best friends. They are also an eighties pop sensation outselling and out-classing their competition. Until it all comes to an abrupt end and three of their careers are over, and so is their friendship.

Betrayal tore them apart.

In their three decades apart, life was far from the dream they were living as members of The Thunder Girls. Breakdowns, bankruptcy, addiction and divorce have been a constant part of their lives. They've been to hell and back, and some are still there...

Now their old record label wants the band back together for a huge money-making concert. But the wounds are deep and some need this gig more than others.

Thirty years later, can lightning strike twice?

About the author (2021)

At fifteen years old Melanie Blake was told by her high school career advisers that her decision to do work experience at a local record shop was an 'embarrassment and a clear example that she wouldn't go far in life or her career'. They were wrong. By twenty-one she was working at the BBC's iconic Top of the Pops show and by twenty-seven she had built a reputation as one of the UK's leading music and entertainment managers, with her own agency and a roster of award-winning artists who had sold more than 100 million records. After a decade at the top, Melanie decided to manage a smaller client list and concentrate on her other passion, writing – first as a columnist for a national newspaper, then as a playwright and now as a novelist. They say write about what you know, and having lived and breathed every aspect of the music and entertainment industry, in The Thunder Girls she certainly has.
