'I am Ella. Buy me.' Written by Joan Ellis Based on Joan's own experiences in top London advertising agencies, this funny, fast-paced tale is set against a backdrop of Thatcher's Britain where money trumped morals and lust was a must. 'I am a ginger tom. I am a boy racer. I am a housewife. I am a pain in the arse.' Working in Soho's mad, bad Adland in the sexist 80s, Ella David is a rare beast - a woman in a man's world. When her lothario boss, Peter Richards, bored with his ball-clicker, demands something or someone new to play with, Ella finds herself battling more than just fat thighs. Faced with losing her job or sleeping with him, Ella turns to her friend, Adam Hart the one constant bright spot in her life. Can love help her go from a girl in the firing line to a woman calling the shots? Joan Ellis Award-winning advertising copywriter, comedy writer, performer, lecturer - Joan Ellis has been them all. With a full-time job in a top London advertising agency and a new baby, she did what any right-minded woman would've done and set up a comedy club. She even appeared on the same bill as Jo Brand. Once.A career highlight was casting a black and white moggie as Humphrey Bogart for her award-winning cat food commercial. Other great performers who brought her words to life include Penelope Keith and Harry Enfield. As a lecturer, Joan taught comedian Noel Fielding all he knows about advertising before encouraging him to showcase his creative talents on a wider stage. Working for The Press Association, she tutored Wordsworth's great-grandson in the art of copywriting: Buy a host of golden daffodils and get a blue one, free! She was a lecturer in PR and Advertising at Bournemouth University recently leaving to concentrate on her writing. Suffering from swine flu and sweating like a pig, she moved from London to her beloved Isle of Wight where she lives on cream teas with her long-suffering husband, daughter and two cats. 'I am Ella. Buy me.' Kindle Book www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00LZEQNNI www.joan-ellis.com
