Curtain Call, by C H Clepitt
C H Clepitt has a knack for creating real, relatable characters, who face adversity with humour
and humanity, and Curtain Call is no exception.
“Possibly the best thing I’ve read by C H Clepitt so far.” - Murray McLean
When an assistant to the director role turns into P.A. to her favourite film star, Jen can’t believe
her luck. Eleanor Francis is charming, kind and funny, but she has a secret, and when tragedy
strikes, things threaten to unravel at an uncontrollable pace. Despite being out of her depth Jen
has to adapt to her new role quickly, to protect Eleanor, with whom she is rapidly falling in love.
This is a sweet, understated story that will have you laughing and crying in equal measure. If
you’ve enjoyed C H Clepitt’s other books then this is not to be missed.

A Word from the Author
This started as a short story, prompted by an anthology call by friend and colleague A.M.
Leibowitz. I was at the maximum word limit, and felt the characters still had more to say, so,
when it turned out my submission was 4 times longer than all of the other submissions, I
withdrew it, expanded it and this novella was born. I am really proud of what I have achieved
here, and think it might be some of my best writing to date. I really hope you enjoy reading it as
much as I enjoyed writing it.
