Bestselling author Lana Penrose was born in Sydney, Australia. Her various incarnations have included record company promotions gal, music journalist, MTV producer and personal assistant to an iconic pop sensation known the world over. She also did a brief stint with Simon Cowell.
Along the way she moved to Greece and penned the acclaimed bestseller 'To Hellas & Back' as her mind melted. Her second release 'Kickstart My Heart' followed. Both madcap memoirs were originally released through Penguin/Viking. Both were extremely well received.
Lana has appeared on national breakfast television and she and her books have featured in Vogue, Cleo, Madison, Famous, Woman's Day, That's Life and numerous newspapers and radio shows. She appeared on stage as part of the Darren Hayes Big Night In tour throughout the UK, Ireland, Sydney and Thailand. She was also a guest speaker on four panels at the prestigious Byron Bay Writers' Festival.
With her stories being rife with musical references, a 'Kickstart My Heart' companion CD was released through Universal Music.
Today Lana can be found gazing through her window in between writing thought-provoking sentences and wishing that she had a cat. New releases are in the works.
