BOOK SYNOPSISTrue love or the career of a lifetime? Could you choose?
Evelyn Wise and Jack King share strong acting ambitions and unstoppable persistence when it comes to pursuing their careers. But on one fated night, they meet on Shaftesbury Avenue in the heart of London’s theatre district. Innocently, they entertain their curiosity for each other behind the stage door of the Gielgud Theatre, allowing their hearts to open to each other during a summer romance in Soho.
As their acting careers begin to take flight, their relationship becomes a casualty of their fame. A world of sex and drug deals begins to encompass them, forcing each of them to employ unlawful actions to survive their broken existences and secure their dreams.
Words are left unsaid as they travel, and Evelyn and Jack are faced with the raw reality of having to choose between their love of success and their love for each other.
Victoria's writing passion was nurtured as a child when she would write poems and short stories during car journeys with her father. As her academic studies continued, Victoria's flair for writing developed alongside her acting career where she studied at The University of Chichester and The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama.
Victoria has written for The Stage Newspaper and Spotlight, both highly regarded sources of research for the acting communities in the United Kingdom. Her first novel, London Love, will debut in early 2015.
In addition to acting commitments, Victoria continues to develop literature for the world of television and screen, as well as women's romance fiction and acting theories and guides.
