Almost Famous meets Reality Bites and Spinal Tap, in this compelling and often injected with humor, fast-paced novel from Susan Holmes McKagan, Huffington Post front page writer/international supermodel and wife of Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver founding member and bassist Duff McKagan.

In the early nineties, Scarlett, a painter and high fashion model, finds herself working in some of the world’s most infamous fashion capitals. As her adventure continues, she meets Johnny of The Westies, an up-and-coming band on the cusp of superstardom.

What ensues is an unhinged ride of a novel following Scarlett as she navigates her life through fame, addiction, infidelity, and all the ups and downs of dating a legendary musician from one of the biggest rock bands in history.

A page turning, holding nothing back, front row seat of fun, well-written debut. Susan Holmes McKagan shines in The Velvet Rose.
