‘Fresh, original and addictive’ PHILLIPA ASHLEY
‘Paints a perfect vision of the real New York so clearly that you might have closed your eyes and been transported there’ HELEN FIELDS
‘Helen Cox’s novel held me in its grasp from start to finish. I was intrigued, curious, flushed, and a few times even shaken. Her enchanting story wondrously transported me to street level New York City, I felt the cold, loneliness, danger, and desperation of those hard streets, then immediately forgot it as she whisked me into The Starlight Diner with its human warmth, loyal friendships and cozy family like atmosphere. She brought me to a place I could truly be myself in. Form chapter one on, I was affected by Bonnie Brooks. She was fearful, yet courageous, flawed, yet admirable, troubled, yet entirely loveable. I felt her highs and lows as if they were my own. This story was powerful enough to linger in my thoughts long after I’d stopped reading.’ SAM CARRINGTON
Helen Cox is a book-devouring, photo-taking, film-obsessed novelist. If forced to choose one, Helen’s Mastermind specialism would be Grease 2. To this day, she still adheres to the Pink Lady pledge and when somebody asks her if she is a god, she says ‘yes.’
After completing her MA in creative writing at the University of York St. John, Helen found work writing for a range of magazines, websites and blogs as well as writing news and features for TV and radio. She has written three non-fiction books and founded the independent film publication New Empress Magazine. She currently lives in York and writes novels.
