Nora is as shocked as her friends and family when she quits a perfectly good job to become an extra in a
Hollywood movie being filmed in Dubrovnik. She hopes it will help her move on from a painful break-up and
give her breathing space to find out what she wants to do with her life.
To Nora’s delight she discovers that she loves every minute in her new “temporary” career. It doesn’t hurt
either that the handsome assistant director, Ivor, takes more than a passing interest in her. But then events
take a dramatic and unforeseen turn when Lucas Winter, world-famous actor and Nora’s teenage heartthrob,
unexpectedly arrives on set…
The Stars Among Us is inspired by the author’s real-life experience of being an extra on the set of HBO’s
Game of Thrones. Perfect for fans of Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk and Susan Elizabeth Phillips.
Back in September, we got an inspired behind the scenes look into a Hollywood movie and of course at love… so what did we think?
28th September and the tour kicked off today!
Extract at emmabBooks, “She would be spending a month and a half on set, with breaks, and then… well, she didn’t know the answer to that question. But, for the first time in her life, she decided to give the tiny voice in her head that told her everything was going to be alright a chance.”

Extract at Laughter and Thunderstorms, ” Nora was stunned for a moment. She felt extremely embarrassed, but the only thing left to do now was to be completely honest. “OK, this is going to sound cringey, but I’m pretty sure I still have your poster on the wall of my old room at my parents’ house,” she gushed in one breath.”
