London 1974 – and Peter Greenberg is riding high. Thanks to his magic touch, every play he puts on in Theatreland is a hit and the money is rolling in. The young man’s empire feels secure – but then everything changes. One evening, he calls in to see a rival’s musical and falls head over heels in love.

​The beautiful Paris-born dancer who catches his eye is Nadine – a major star in the making. Like Greenberg, the young dancer too is in love – but with someone else. The eternal triangle is complicated by the birth of a child, and by tragic secrets that go back before World War Two; slowly, those secrets reveal themselves in a drama that out-performs anything on the West End stage or Broadway.

Nadine is a poignant story of unrequited love, a love that will one day be returned – and in a most unexpected way…

 

 

Q&A

 When and where do you prefer to write?

Early in the morning in my study at home

Do you have a certain ritual?

Editing the last piece of work which often provides the necessary push into action

Is there a drink of some food that keeps you company while you write?

Nothing in particular

What is your favourite book?

Whatever I’m enjoying currently. I don’t enjoy revisiting books from the past

Do you consider writing a different genre in the future?

Not entirely; though I’ve already started on a private detective series.

Do you sometimes base your characters on people you know?

Yes and on aspects of myself

Do you take a notebook everywhere in order to write down ideas that pop up?

Usually, I make notes on my mobile phone

Which genre do you not like at all?

Science Fiction

If you had the chance to co-write a book. Whom would it be with?

I’ve had the experience of co-writing for theatre, which was a great learning curve but I cant imagine working that way in the future.

If you should travel to a foreign country to do research, which one would you chose and why?

I’m already planning a trip to Vienna for my next novel. It much depends on where scenes are set and whether a visit will enhance the piece

Thank you, John Steinberg and Rachel’s Random Resources.
