Just Published: ‘From Me To You’ – a novel set to the hysteria of Beatlemania!
Garry Berman and Kelly Marie Thompson are excited to announce the release of their first novel written via email about 1960’s pen pals during the British invasion.
“Garry and I wrote this novel set around Beatlemania in the 1960s,” says Kelly Marie Thompson. “The story follows two trans-Atlantic pen pals, one from Liverpool and one from New Jersey, as their lives, friendship and fanaticism develop to the backdrop of the Beatles' historic moments.”
The story opens in the summer of 1963 when pen pals Ricky Kramer in New Jersey, and Maggie Carter in Liverpool, have been sharing their enthusiasm for the Beatles. Maggie has delighted Ricky with her stories of seeing the group at the Cavern club, and has sent him the Beatles’ early records.
From Me To You follows their often comic transition to young adulthood on both sides of the Atlantic as their friendship begins to flourish into something deeper.
Kelly Marie Thompson, who writes comedy, sci-fi and scripts, lives in South Shields, England. Garry Berman, a pop culture writer and lifelong Anglophile, lives in Westampton, New Jersey. Kelly and Garry have been collaborating on comedy scripts by way of e-mail since 2011. In 2013, they co-wrote a six episode original sitcom Barkers Upon Tyne that has been published as a book. From Me To You is their first novel.
From Me To You is available at Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/
