    About a year ago on the old forum, I mentioned on the Dynasty forum that I was in the process of publishing my book: Greenacres, its the name of the large Victorian house in London

    Here's the synopsis:

    Two young cousins inherit a large Victorian house left to them by their grandparents: Josephine is thirty and is caring for her teenaged cousin; Chloe who is 14 years old

    Among the lodgers is a single widowed dad: Andrew and his two teenaged children, Francesca & Michael, aged 16 and 14 respectively, Andrew and Josephine fall in love as do Chloe and Michael

    Gay couple: Lance and Benjy, Lance is in his late twenties, very career focused, works in a city bank, Benjy is an art student in his early twenties both have very different outlooks on life, Lance is more conservative, religious yet proud to be gay, Benjy is a typical average millenial, lives for now, not for tomorrow, liberal, supports left wing causes and doesn't feel the need to define himself in termsof his sexuality which often conflict with Lance's attitudes.

    An "Audrey Hepburn" type early thirties woman names Aurora Hopkins, lives in one of the studio flats, she's never had a relationship with a man, because she wants to wait until marriage
    She's very introverted, she has a crush on Andrew, hoping he'll find her attractive but he himself is in love with Josephine, Aurora is also an actress on the stage and when she's not acting she does temping jobs, she's estranged from her family

    Bernice, a middle aged, free spirited, writer, been married and divorced twice, she's of mixed origin, has two foster children who she's very close too and they visit regularly, and a niece who constantly brings trouble to her door but loves her nonetheless.

    A story of a group of lost souls finding their way through life together, thanks to sharing the same inhabited space, exploring hopes, dreams and hidden desires, in a modern day London, which treasures business over individuality.

    I may start writing some excerpts' on here :) hope you'll like it.

    UPDATE:
    Just realised that was my first draft I posted yesterday

    My new version, Bernice is now April-Bernice, in her late thirties, her foster children are now her two step-children, one from each of her marriages; Cassie Wells, from her first marriage and Adam Harris from her second, Cassie and Adam carry on an illicit relationship as they are sort of step-siblings, April-Bernice's niece, now also has a child and she lives round the corner from her.

    I'll start posting script versions of this from.next week.
