1979 by Rhona Cameron

Book Description

1979 takes place in a small fishing town called Musselburgh, situated on the east coast of Scotland. An evocative, moving and at times hilarious true-life story about growing up gay in a small town, finding out you're adopted, and losing your father at the age of fourteen. Always an outsider, the Rhona of 1979 was desperate to fit in at any cost, and here lies the bittersweet humour. At the heart of the book is the Clubhouse, a place that symbolises all that is normal, happy, and secure. And behind the club, outside, Rhona and her friends are smoking, fighting, kissing and drinking. In this darkly funny and deeply biographical first book, Rhona Cameron takes us back to a year when everything seemed to change. A new British government came to power, the Eighties were approaching and at times life felt so precarious that it really looked like she and her family might never make it through the next year, let alone the next decade.

Naked Drinking Club by Rhona Cameron Naked Drinking Club, Paperback (August 2008)

Setting off on a hastily arranged visit to Australia, Kerry packs only three items of clothing, a pair of flip-flops, two hundred pounds and her young persons' work visa. Soon broke, hungry and homeless, she joins ART, a likeable but mismatched band of travellers who sell dodgy oil paintings door-to-door in the suburbs.

A decade of sell-out Edinburgh Fringe shows and tours in the UK, and A/NZ followed. TV includes Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and The Frank Skinner Show; hosting 4 series of BBC2's pioneering Gaytime TV and in 2000 her first BBC sitcom series, Rhona. In March 2002 she joined the West End cast of The Vagina Monologues, before heading off to the Australian jungle for the massive ITV hit, I'm A Celebrity-Get Me Out Of Here.
