Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Ann Brandt is the alter-ego of a Seattle journalist who worked in the New York City music scene in the 1980's, when heavy metal hit its peak. And yes... she did spend some time backstage.

More About the Author

ANN BRANDT is my alter-ego. I'm a former broadcast journalist now working on a daytime talk show in the Pacific Northwest and working on two other novels surrounding 80's metal groupies in NYC and LA. I'm also formulating a steamy romance series that centers around hockey. (If you don't think hockey is hot, I dare you to watch these guys on the ice. I mean, REALLY watch the way they move! Then, try to envision them out of those bulky uniforms.)

Steel Goddesses is a labor of love twenty years in the making. Characters are loosely based on people I knew or met while working in the recording industry in NYC in the 80's. The Steel Goddesses novels are my homage to the heyday of 80's metal and the women who took groupie-dom to new and dizzying heights. If you weren't lucky enough to live during that time, just watch Metal Mania on VH1 Classic and check out the women in those videos. I'm not saying those girls were groupies, mind you, but the plumage certainly is similar.

I love my life in the NW with my former hockey player husband, our teenage son (who does NOT like hockey), our crazysmart dog and wacky kitten. But I really love taking you on a stroll down memory lane, to the days of big hair, big makeup, spandex, leather and power chords. I hope you love it, too.

What Rupert Holmes did for big bands with Swing, Ann Brandt does for the heavy metal set. A mystery with great characters in a vivid setting pulls me back to a misspent youth I wasn't brave enough to have. This is a page turner, ideal for adding some spice to a relaxing day on vacation. A whole bunch of fun to read!

What are the motivations behind the behaviors of groupies? Ann Brandt aptly bares the souls of her characters layer by layer, keeping her readers enthralled with her behind-the-scenes look at Steel Goddesses and what makes them tick. Be careful what you wish for...
The antics of the band members, though some might say are stereotypical, ring laugh-out-loud all-too-true to any woman who has ever spent enough time around Rock 'n' Roll musicians to have first-hand knowledge of their off-stage performances.
As Brandt reveals the Machiavellian machinations of the man behind the scenes in much the same way she does her Goddesses, by the time I had enough pieces of the puzzle to figure it out, it made my skin crawl... At one point, "There but for the grace of G-d go I," was actually said aloud to an empty room.
Even for readers who have never been around the scene, Ann Brandt's page turner, Steel Goddesses, provides a wild ride! Get in, sit down, shut up, and hang on!
Meanwhile, this reader is standing in line for the next book, ready to go for another ride and holler, "WHOOOP!!!"

From Ms. Brandt's description of each character to the juicy story line, this book sucks you in from the beginning and doesn't let you go until the very end. For anyone who experienced the 80's metal scene you will definitely enjoy this book and possibly get a chuckle from your OWN reminiscing during this glamorous rock era. For everyone else, this is a colorful and highly entertaining glimpse into one of rock 'n rolls most sexiest times. You won't be disappointed! I guarantee, once you pick it up, you won't be able to put it down.

I loved this book! The characters are three-dimensional, the plot is engaging, and the background details pulled me right back to my "misspent" youth in the 1980s. A fast, fun read with surprising twists that will leave you thinking. If you're old enough to remember the 80s, you'll love it. If you're not, this book will show you what the heavy metal scene was like "back in the day". Highly recommended!!
