Brisbane writer to launch new Hollywood-based novel

Brisbane based Nick Winters (pictured) is about to launch his novel Hollywood Scent.

Nick who, while based in Hollywood for a period of time, was inspired to write a story that covers all things Hollywood, with movie stars, murder, romance, and witchcraft.

Nick was born in Australia and grew up in Queensland. He discovered his love for stories and writing at an early age. Nick studied writing in Australia, New York, and Los Angeles, where he developed a strong affection for Hollywood. He has travelled widely in Europe and the United States. Hollywood Scent is Nick's debut novel.

Teneille Douglas will launch the supernatural thriller, in which screen siren Lillian Kelly turns to witchcraft in her twisted quest for eternal youth. But she becomes greedy and displeases the dark forces, who imprison her wicked soul in a perfume bottle.

Decades later, lonely dressmaker Helen Elliot makes a special wish to the Hollywood Sign. “I want some magic in my life… I want to be beautiful and to be loved.” Her wish is answered when Helen is gifted with the beguiling bottle filled with supernatural scent.

A dizzying ride ensues as she becomes part of Hollywood’s elite, an exclusive circle of the ultra-rich and famous.

Soon, Helen is living out all her wildest romantic fantasies in a world of unimaginable luxury. However, she realizes there may be a deadly price to pay for her wish as she faces a showdown with the ruthless Lillian, who will stop at nothing for a second chance at life.

The book will be launched on August 13th at Avid Reader Bookstore in West End. Tuesday 13 August, 6pm – 8pm in store at Avid Reader Bookshop
