Book ONE of SIX 

NINETEEN64  – The early years…

The incredible journey of a young French girl embarking upon an extraordinary life.

Claudine Cicorre had no idea what her future would hold, but being discovered at sixteen by Janet Goldsmith, who owned the largest model agency in London was not part of her plan. Renamed Coco, and launched into the fiercely competitive world of modeling, it didn’t take long before she was ranked alongside Twiggy and the Shrimp as the ‘in demand’ face of the 60’s.

Little did Coco know that modeling would lead to a lonely life of seclusion in the Spanish mountains…that is until she meets Simon.

Kindred spirits, they fall in love…or at least it feels like real love. Unexpectedly, Coco decides to return to Paris. But she leaves her Harley to him, which gives him hope she will return soon.

Simon is unknowingly in business with uncompromising Mafia boss, Senor Carglinas. Settlement of Simon’s outstanding debt is demanded. Unable to pay, Simon is forced into a deal with the devil and his fate is sealed with one brief conversation.

With a “Sturm und Drang” feel, you will be on the edge of your seat and turning pages impatiently to see what type of adventure, or misadventure, Coco will encounter next.

Books 2-6 follow in sequence, however, they are perfectly readable as stand alone books. It adds to the reader’s participation, to track the challenging passing of time, and the pursuit of the truth.

 

 BOOK 2.The Search

BOOK 6.God only knows

This is the final incredible book in the series of 6 titled Coco’s Story.  The book is set in 2025 and is a fast moving thriller involving Islamic State and the World’s intelligentsia.  Top leaders come together with an ambitious strategy to end hostilities, in a most unconventional way.

The trail of destruction, deceit and impossible decisions will make this book controversial and a must read.

  • Without giving away the enormity of decisions Coco Cicorre and Governments face, I have deliberately kept this synopsis to a minimum.

What is the final resolution? Could you imagine the responsibility to make such a decision? And are you confident who, and which, Organization is acting on behalf of the World?

I promise you a sensational ending….Tomas

BOOK 7.  That’s Another Story…  Stand alone novel, not part of the 6 book Coco’S Story Series.

A footballers story but without any football..

 Sir Artola Douglas William Blye, known, all over the World as ‘Art.’ The most famous British footballer that ever lived and the youngest recipient of a Knighthood.

Art Blye played for just three Clubs in his football career, Arsenal, his boyhood club, Barcelona in Spain, where he became the first £1 million a week player, at the tender age of 18. He returned to what he considered his roots, Cape Town, South Africa when his four-year contract in Spain expired. He retired from football in 2022 after the World Cup triumph, just 25 years of age

 

Both his parents were Nationalised South Africans, killed in a terrorist bomb blast, when he was just three years old. Art was discovered two days later in the cellar of the house, severely injured but clinging to his favourite bear. His parents owned and managed a high profile Chicken business, which dominated the huge demand for their quality chicken products throughout the Country and beyond. They ran a successful Charity for homeless people, building low-cost housing with the profits from ‘Chicken and Lips.’ It was too political for some, in particular, the EFF, who saw the Charity as a threat to their Political ambition. Ambition, which wanted those living in poverty to become their troops in the planned revolution.

 

Art had a beautiful wife, three gorgeous children, and wealth beyond comprehension. He was good looking, a genuine smile capable of igniting any room, a calm, articulate speaking man, a sponsors dream and flattered by the UK Prime Minister’s demands, for him to become a roaming Ambassador. Welcomed by A list Celebrity in every corner of the Globe, his ‘Brand’ exploded across Continents.

 

After retiring from football, his income stream could not be halted; he was a billionaire who had everything. Idolized by youth, adored by young single or not so single girls, he had the trappings of stardom that outsiders craved, a mistaken assumption this was the holy grail of life’s reward. Money, fame, several large houses in USA, France, and Spain, as well as the rebuilt house his parents owned in Constantia, Cape Town.

 

He crossed every divide of humanity.

He had Freedom. Freedom not to have to worry about anything, ever again.

 

However.  ‘That’s Another Story…’
