Trish Tonello lives and works in Perth, Australia. She's a practising visual artist and lives with her partner, computer graphics artist Graham Taylor, with whom she's currently working on an interactive graphic novel of 'Cabaret Voltaire' due for release in 2013. They are not married, have no children or pets and would like to live in a palazzo overlooking the Grand Canal in Venice.
Rebellious aristocrat Alex Tresillian wants to be an artist. Problem is, her father and the elite society she lives in forbid it. When Alex discovers the anarchic world of the Cabaret Voltaire, she is drawn to the club's exciting atmosphere and, almost against her will, its most desirable entertainer - the enigmatic Rock-god JD.
