The race is on for every girl to achieve the perfect body, the perfect career, the perfect boyfriend and ultimately all being well a husband and baby. The trouble is we are all racing against our biological clock. No one wants to hit their 40th Birthday and realise - Whoops! How exactly did that happen?

When wild-child London journalist Anna encounters drop-dead gorgeous Mark in the Tribeca Grill restroom sparks explode. He thinks he’s found a strong, wild, independent perfect woman, while Anna thinks she’s found a God Boy/Man. But while Anna’s still wondering whether Mark is for fun or for keeps or whether he too good to be true, she’s hit a pregnancy scare.

What happens next is Anna’s hit with the full force of her overpowering interfering eccentric celebrity-chat show host mother (think Joan Rivers meets Ad Fab) obsessed with women achieving it all and a tangle of missteps, misunderstandings, dilemmas and desires. Suddenly Anna finds herself in the centre of a perfect Eggs-on-Ice storm/story.

How would you live your life if you could stop your biological clock? If you know that anytime you could turn back time by freezing your eggs. Or can you? Anna takes us on a bumpy, hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, but always rewarding journey of discovery into what it means to be a twenty something girl without children in the Big Apple.

One in five American women between the ages of forty and forty-four is childless. With half of those women saying they wish they could have children, Anna offers a message of fertility hope that even twentysomethings who want to prolong their dating years do not need to fret.

That Girl-Boy Thing is Tyne O’Connell romantic comedy at full throttle - full of humour and emotional honesty, compassion and ultimately redemption.

‘Just when you thought you had seen it all on Sex In The City, Tyne O’Connell wades in with this tale of wild child English columnist on the loose in New York who hitches up with a cautious American lawyer. Mark has thus far managed to resist the siren call of love, but Anna, with her spray on dress and a shoe-box Everest in the bedroom, has got him completely hooked. And then there is a pregnancy scare. Who is going to run first - Mark or Anna?’ - Marie Claire
