Best Selling Australian Author

51oMJYThMkL._SL300_Welcome to the official website for Annika Cleeve and her book “Mattress Actress”. In South East Asia Mattress Actress is called Eve: Memoirs of an International Sex Worker.

Mattress Actress is the story of Annika Cleeve’s eighteen years as a sex worker. Her troubled childhood in Queensland led to working in a brothel on the Sunshine Coast at the age of fifteen, and from there Annika worked her way up to the high-end parlours, agencies and private work in various parts of Australia and internationally. In this book Annika reveals the truth of a sex worker’s life; the clients, the girls, the parlour bosses, the rip-off merchants, the drug deaths, the white slavery, the discrimination, the corrupt police and politicians, the exotic travel and the money. Mattress Actress is a revealing and gutsy look at someone practising the world’s oldest profession in the late twentieth century. From wide-eyed innocent to experienced and successful professional, Annika’s story is both shocking and highly entertaining.

Review by B. Anon

Memoirs of an International Sex Worker
Annika Cleeve
I am not much of a reader but when you go on a relaxing holiday i decided to take some books. So after finishing 3 books in 10 days i was needing some new material. I went into a book store in Ubud, Bali in search of the American Sniper ( which i found ) and I stumbled across your book ‘Eve’

Well i was gripped immediately and I’m nearly finished. I read a book similar not that call long about Kate Holden a St Kilda prostitute in Melbourne but i have found your book so much more enjoyable. I find thay your not vuglar in your description of things sexuality related. There are small snippets of humour.

I’m definitely going to read more of your work.

Your a fighter in life and not scared of hard work.


This may not have been the most complimentary review I have ever had but his comments came just at the perfect moment to make my day and lift my spirits. Annika
