The Thunder Girls
The Thunder Girls by Melanie Blake

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?

Bestselling author Melanie Blake's own real life Rags to Riches story reads like the plot of an outrageous drama... At fifteen years old Melanie Blake was told by her high school career advisors that her decision to do work experience at a local record shop was an 'embarrassment to the school 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 roster of award-winning artists who had sold more than 100 million records. During this time she also built up an acting agency from scratch which quickly became the most successful independent boutique agency in the UK where she manages clients from some of the biggest internationally syndicated shows in the world. Her roster have won Baftas, Emmys and pretty much every best actress award going and Melanie is one of the most successful female agents in the world. In the UK alone, over 25 million people a week currently tune in to watch the very stars Melanie represents in their globally syndicated shows. In 2018 after two decades at the top of her game, 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 best-selling novelist. Her first book The Thunder Girls became a Number 1 Best Seller in the summer of 2019 and the play she adapted from the novel broke box office records for a new work at the prestigious Lowry Theatre. She still represents a high profile stable of some of the best known faces on British television but is also now enjoying success in her own right as a producer, author and playwright.
