Steel Goddesses: A fun trilogy of novels set in ’80s NYC & LA, starring metal bands and groupies

Back in 2004, as I recovered from a serious car accident, I began writing a novel about groupies in New York City’s heavy metal scene in 1985. I published the first book, Steel Goddesses, in 2009.

In 2016, I rewrote and republished Steel Goddesses, after it was selected to be turned into a movie. Rewriting Book 1 inspired me to finally write Book 2 (Steel Goddesses: Revenge), which was published in June of 2018. Book 2 remained in the Big Apple and took place in 1986.

I’m now in the process of writing Book 3 (Steel Goddesses Take LA), which takes place in, you guessed it, La-La Land, in 1987. I’m aiming for a publishing date of June, 2019 (fingers crossed).

If you enjoy ’80s metal, saucy ladies, murder, and love, I think you’ll enjoy the trilogy. Here are links to books 1 and 2:
