Fallen Star

by Ian Barker

FAMOUS: Celebrated. Acclaimed. Legendary. Illustrious. Popular. Notorious. Recognised. Renowned. Successful. Eminent. Prominent. Excellent.

Having kudos.

Being a star.

The Fallen Boys were at their zenith when Zac’s luck ran out. How does the shock of being dumped from dazzling and conspicuous success into relative obscurity affect his fellow boy band members Karl, Ritchie and Leon?

Accustomed to adulation, wall-to-wall glamour, sex and all the illusions of fame, the Boys find themselves in strange territory. No longer courted, with zero prospect of resurrecting the group, they find themselves facing harsh realities. Karl is driven to appear on chat shows and accept pantomime roles: all the P.R. exercises he previously spurned. Desperate for work he even auditions for a blue movie. Reluctantly, he participates in a TV reality series soon after he meets Lizzie Keating, daughter of an IRA bomber. Hormones and adrenalin surge as the challenges to their relationship surface: Karl’s father, ex-Army and implacable in his hatred for the Irish; Karl’s wandering eye; Lizzie’s refusal to play second fiddle to anyone.

With gusto, humour and insight, Ian Barker entertains with this intertwined tale of discovering what is truly valuable in life.

About The Author :-

Born in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, Ian grew up in north-east England and gained a business degree from Teesside Polytechnic in the early ’80s.

In the ‘real world’ he is editor of a computer magazine and has spent over twenty five years working in information technology. He currently lives in Bolton, Greater Manchester and doesn’t own a dishwasher.

Over the years Ian has produced lots of comic verse, for things like office Christmas cards, most of which is collected on his website.

In the mid ’90s he made regular contributions to Martin Kelner for a late night show on BBC radio in northern England. Moving to the north-west in 1996, he continued to contribute items to Martin’s Manchester based Jazz FM breakfast show; again some of this material is on his website.

His first cash-in-the-bank publishing credit was a Laughter the Best Medicine gag for Reader’s Digest in 1998.

Since then he has gone on to write topical comedy sketches for BBC Radio’s The News Huddlines, and has had short stories published in Evergreen magazine, and in the WritersNet Anthology. He has stories published online in the e-zines Starving Arts and Crime Scene Scotland plus a co-written story on Admit Two. In his day job he is editor of PC Utilities magazine and a regular contributor to sister publications.
