The Rise and Fall (and Rise Again) of Clara Wild

By Natasha West

Clara and Lily are about to discover that truth and love can be found even in the most cynical Hollywood lies…

Lily Gray, a talented British ghostwriter specialising in writing autobiographies for celebrities, is tasked with documenting the life of reclusive Hollywood actress, Clara Wild. Clara gained stardom two decades ago with a hit TV show but mysteriously stepped away from the limelight, leaving fans and the industry baffled.

But reclusive Clara is not interested in playing ball with her ghostwriter. She’s been pushed into the book in an effort to resurrect her career, but she doesn’t know if she really should reveal her secrets. Because they aren’t just hers. A lot of people stand to be exposed if Clara talks.

However, after a misconstrued video leads people to believe that Lily and Clara might be a couple, squeezing the truth out of Clara gets pushed down the list of Lily’s problems. The rumour of Clara and Lily’s thrilling queer ‘romance’ captures the public’s imagination and media attention surges, opening the door to a comeback for Clara. Despite their deep reluctance, Lily and Clara decide to play along, realising that the fake romance might be the key to reviving Clara’s dormant career, as well as making Lily’s book extremely profitable.

But the course of faking true love never did run smooth. Agents, paparazzi, family, ex-girlfriends and a counterfeit chihuahua provide plenty of complications to Clara and Lily’s sham relationship. And as they find themselves entangled in an ever more intricate web of lies, the line between make-believe and reality gets blurred…

“The Rise and Fall (and Rise Again) of Clara Wild” is a heartwarming romantic comedy that explores the resilience of love, the unpredictability of fame and the genuine connections that can blossom amidst the chaos of Hollywood. Will Clara’s career truly experience a resurgence, and will Lily and Clara’s relationship survive the scrutiny of both the public eye and their own hearts? Only time will tell in this delightful tale of love, laughter, and the unexpected turns life can take.
