Online Diary A NOBLE MANCHESTER Chronicles American Debutante's Search for Love in Manchester, England

MANCHESTER, ENGLAND--(Marketwire - January 6, 2011) - An American Girl's Guide to A NOBLE MANCHESTER launches today, documenting Jennifer Grace Cook's real time six-month search for love in Manchester, England. Cook, a screenwriter from Los Angeles, takes her cue from the 19th century debs who found men across the pond. The online diary, described as Sex & the City meets Eat, Pray, Love, had its soft launch this fall with content detailing Cook's disastrous dating life all culminating in her decision to run off to England in search of a noble man. 

Still in its nascence has already generated traffic from 27 countries, 167 cities in the United States and Canada and 64 cities in the United Kingdom. Cook's sexy and irreverent style appeals to both women and men. 'Ballsy and addictive' is what men are saying and Cook's candor about her fear of emotional intimacy has 'struck a nerve' with male readers.

After 18 years in Hollywood, the chronically single 40ish former debutante confesses, "I think I'm the only person in all of modern culture who didn't find herself in California. For me surviving in Hollywood meant a soft underbelly was unacceptable. In order to find love I need to become vulnerable again. What better place for personal revolution than Manchester, England, the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, the Communist Manifesto and The Smiths?"

Cook is coy about how much intimate detail she'll share and she kisses and writes with discretion, giving her suitors cheeky aliases like, Johnny Lemondrop, Sexy Grumpy Rockstar and Yummy Sugar Sweat. Additionally, she realizes that dating and documenting just might alienate the man she's hoping to find noting, "I'm searching for love and a man of noble character so I'll have to be worthy of him. That said, I'll always be honest about my quest with the men I meet. It's a delicate kind of adventure and the people and city of Manchester are a crucial to its success. I can't do it without them. I'm also hoping this public approach will help me find him; help us find one another."

Cook has worked in TV and film development, production and marketing including at HBO, Sony Pictures Entertainment and Screen Actors Guild. She's written over 14 screenplays and most recently penned the adaptation of Jim Harrison's novella Julip for Executive Producer/Director Alison Eastwood.
