"Timeless. Vanda deftly captures the nightlife of mid-century Manhattan in all its glory, from the swanky Time Square night Clubs to it seedy underbelly, yet the underlying stories are as relevant to LGBT audiences today as they were in the Eisenhower era." Denise Deems, author of Missing in Action & Killed in Action
"An exciting, sometimes heart wrencing adventure in post-war NYC clubland as a tight circle of LGBT friends affirm themselves, pursue love and build community against a challenging backdrop of the period's homophobia. A spot-on histsoric portray!" Phillip Crawford Jr., author of The Mafia and the Gays.

If you like stories about 1950s Manhattan and behind the scenes drama in theater and nightclubs you’ll love, Olympus Nights on the Square: Book 2 of the Juliana Series. You can enter the series at any point. It’s sexy, funny and deadly serious; it’s full of mobsters, the FBI, McCarthyism, gay bashing, lesbian pulp, a beginning awareness of transgender persons and “cures” for homosexuality.
