Girls Who Play Guitars
Love-phobic Aussie rock chick Ellie Devine must resist the charms of sexy pop star Daniel Armstrong to save her band's songs from their vengeful ex-lead singer.
It's 1994. All-girl Aussie band Slider, fronted by lead singer, guitarist and avid AC/DC fan Ellie Devine, is defying the odds to become one of the biggest rock bands in England.
Along with her best mates-no-nonsense drummer Kim and nonsensical bass player Meg-Ellie knows Slider has the potential to make it big.
When Jessie, the unreliable singer they turfed out of the band years ago, threatens to steal the rights to Slider's songs, everything Ellie, Meg and Kim have worked so hard for could be ripped away.
Enter Daniel Armstrong, Britpop star and blond-haired, blue-eyed pinup boy. With all his flirty charm and casual swagger Ellie's world is turned upside down.
Can she save her music and her band without being side-tracked by Daniel's charismatic force?
Can she ever get over her first and only love, Kombi Van Man, and let Daniel in?
Can she balance her music, her band and her best mates with her lust for Daniel?
This is a road tripper of a story about friendship and sweet British musos topped off with the occasional Aussie slang word - perfect for anyone with a deeply desperate passion for music.

About the Author
I have an unhealthy obsession with ????music???? and the 1990s, ????fame???? and ????celebrity????.
I write heartfelt stories about being in bands, going to gigs, listening to mixtapes and playing guitar extra loud to stadiums of screaming, sweaty fans. My stories are all about the Nineties and have an Australian twist - because that's what I know and love! I've won an Amby and am a Wattpad Star and Wattpad Creator which is pretty spesh! ????
