When One Little Mistake by Emma Curtis was published I was lucky enough to interview Emma here all about it. Today I’m thrilled to share the second of my holiday reads and to review When I Find You, Emma’s latest book. My grateful thanks both to the author and to Hannah Bright at Penguin Random […]

It’s amazing that many male film stars are so smooth and sophisticated on screen, particularly in love scenes, but in real life they show no finesse at all! Apparently, #Peter #Sellers was a classic example when he tried it on with actresses – and he was firmly rebuffed by #Liz #Fraser.
“You can put that away,” the Carry On star told him when he unzipped his trousers, intent on having #sex after inviting her to dine in his trailer.
He did as she instructed and told her: “I think you’d better go.”
But she retorted: “Not only have you behaved inappropriately but you’re now going back on your promise to give me a wonderful dinner. I’m not going to leave without having my dinner.”
So they ate three courses in silence.
Liz, who died aged 88 on September 6th, 2018, said: “Peter was such a rogue. He boasted about having an affair with Sophia Loren when they starred in The Millionairess in 1960. He was so excited he told his wife Anne Howe, and was surprised when she threw him out of the house.”
This will be one of the stories in the new edition of my celebrity book My Life with the Stars, which is already packed with revelations and anecdotes about Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra, Joan Collins, George Best, Muhammad Ali, Bruce Forsyth and many more.

Websites can be very important, but only if you get them exactly right – including the ideal domain name for you, writes author and former Sky TV executive Tony Flood.
I have been lucky enough to have what I consider to be three excellent #websites designed for my requirements, and you may like to look at them to get some #ideas about not only #design but also #content, #links, useful #information and #advice!
To see examples of what I hope you will agree are good, distinctive websites (and some great book bargains, signed by the authors), please check out: www.celebritiesconfessions.com and
My publishers Xlibris are so confident that my #spicy #crime #thriller Triple Tease will be a success that they have given me a dynamic modified website in http://www.crimeandpassion.com It contains links to several book bargains, as well as a special offer for TRIPLE TEASE.
#Triple #Tease, endorsed by international best selling author #Peter #James, TV star #Brian #Capron and the #Sun newspaper’s Stuart Pink, sees super delicious heroine Katrina takes revenge for the assault on her sister. She then challenges suspicious copper DCI Livermore to ignore the rule book and offers to help him nail a serial killer by acting as the bait in a honey trap. Katrina goes on a date with the main suspect and puts her life in danger. There’s another murder as the plot twists and turns to reach a totally unexpected climax.
RAVE REVIEWS include: ‘Talented former journalist Tony Flood makes an exciting entry into the world of crime writing by treating thriller fans to a Triple Tease’– says PETER JAMES, international best selling crime author.
‘This brilliant thriller is wickedly funny, steamily sexy and impossible to put down’ – says PATRICK KEARNS, director.

Actor Brian Capron, who is starring this week in the Talking Scarlet production Strictly Murder at Devonshire Park Theatre, Eastbourne, has said he would love to play the compassionate copper in local author Tony Flood’s thriller Triple Tease.
Flood’s book has been endorsed by best selling author Peter James, and talks are being held to turn it into a stage play like some of James’ own thrillers.
Capron, who lives in Hove and starred as killer Richard Hillman in Coronation Street, declares: “If Triple Tease makes it to the stage or screen DCI Livermore would be a great character to bring to life, with me playing him, of course.”
Eastbourne author Flood adds: “If that did happen I would be delighted to see Brian play DCI Harvey Livermore. He would be ideal for the part of a policeman faced with the ethical dilemma of ‘do the ends justify the means?’
“DCI Livermore is challenged by gorgeous heroine Katrina Merton to ignore the rule book and let her help him nail a serial killer by acting as the bait in a honey trap.”
Director Alan Baker says: “Triple Tease would make a first-class TV thriller, and I can see actors like Brian Capron and Stephen Tompkinson queueing up for the lead male role of the under pressure, tough yet vulnerable DCI Livermore.”
Signed copies of Triple Tease can be obtained for the specially reduced price of £6.99, including postage, by sending a cheque, payable to ‘Sportsworld Communications’, to Special Book Offer, 24 Brisbane Quay, Eastbourne, BN23 5PD.
* Brian Clemens thriller Strictly Murder is at Devonshire Park Thursday from April 6th to Saturday April 8th.
