About Us

Julia Keys and Jacqui Coles are the co-founders of and co-authors of the MANScript. They first became friends at the age of 16, well Jacqui was 15, as Julia is slightly older than Jacqui, which Jacqui never lets her forget!

That life-long friendship actually began when they shared a Saturday job in the Bargain Box record shops based on the Wirral. Each has lovingly kept their collection of vinyl records which they bought back then and now, nearly forty years later, they are witnessing the re-emergence of vinyl popularity. Last year Jacqui received a turntable as a present, so her rare collector’s white vinyl edition of Procol Harum’s – A Whiter shade of Pale, is often frequently heard blasting out and disturbing the neighbours!
