'Juxtaposing that mad hack and glam alter ego with the ordinary girl from nowhere - the girl I really was - became the challenge. The things we got up to in the name of a splash headline became all the more extraordinary because I was just me. The point is that absolutely anyone could have fallen into the life I had.' TUMBLING DICE by Lesley-Ann Jones

The book I said I'd never write is written and is out there. A thousand thanks to Hannah Howe for this most generous interview in the latest edition of MOM'S FAVORITE READS: the influential international eMagazine for readers, writers, teachers, librarians and book lovers. (*see the link, below).

The story so far: thanks to your generosity, TUMBLING DICE has already made the Amazon Top One Hundred Bestsellers chart in both the Theatre & Performance Artist Biographies and Women's Biographies categories, less than a fortnight since publication. Meanwhile, BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY - my definitive biography of Freddie Mercury - is currently #3 in the Popular Music category, #5 in Gay & Lesbian Biographies, and #9 in Rock Music.

Thank you to all who were there along the road. You know who you are, and your support means so much to me. You made a huge impact on how this story turned out. Thanks to all who have downloaded TUMBLING DICE, for buying the print edition, and for posting your honest reviews. Every single one counts. If you haven't yet made contact, I would love to hear from you. What did you learn from this book? How did it affect you? What would you say to someone who was thinking of reading it?
