If you like stories about 1950s Manhattan and behind the scenes drama in theater and nightclubs you’ll love, Olympus Nights on the Square: Book 2 of the Juliana Series. You can enter the series at any point. It’s sexy, funny and deadly serious; it’s full of mobsters, the FBI, McCarthyism, gay bashing, lesbian pulp, a beginning awareness of transgender persons and “cures” for homosexuality. A lot like now.
You can read Book 2 first and still follow the story

“The combination of warmth, fun, and smouldering passion with the dark, prejudice-ridden historical context makes Vanda Writer's OLYMPUS NIGHTS ON THE SQUARE a tale not to be missed.” (Ben Miller-Jarvest, IndieReader)
