The second in Gemma Burgess' hilarious and inspiring new adult series, Brooklyn Girls, will be published by St Martin's Press in the US this week, and by Quercus in the UK next week.  

Broke. Broken-hearted. Bored. (Not necessarily in that order.)


Angie James is lost.

A regular poster girl for Generation Screwed, being 22 isn't what she expected.

What happens when having fun isn't, you know, fun?

In the Brooklyn townhouse she shares with her best friends, Angie wants to figure out what to do with her life. But wild parties, bad dates, dead-end jobs, demanding fashionistas and even true love just keep getting in the way...

Who knew adulthood would be so damn grown-up?


Susan Oudot is continuing to do excellent work on CORONATION STREET. Earlier this month Corrie was named Best Soap/Continuing Drama at the 2014 Broadcast Awards, marking the third consecutive year it's won the title. It also picked up Best Serial Drama at the National Television Awards in Jan.

Congrats to all involved!

Following the success of Alice Nutter's wonderful stage play MY GENERATION, which played to packed audiences at the West Yorkshire Playhouse last autumn, Alice has been writing on Channel 4's THE MILL, produced by Darlow Smithson and based on real-life stories and people of the textile mill workers at Quarry Bank Mill.

Alice is also working with Simon Beaufoy and Tony Garnett on a true-life television drama about police spies.
