Very interesting. Would have loved to have met her.

I knew Maria (Mariella) Novotny for a year, and dated her a couple of times in the summer of `61. She was a very nice girl, just trying to make the best of a bad deal in life, just wanting a nice guy and even nicer kids. She was r*ped by the Russians when in school in Austria, and HATED them. She was scared she might never be able to have kids after all the diseases they had given her. A live-wire, very intelligent, liked Velocette motorbikes (after her part-time pre-war racer father) but drove a British Racing Green Jaguar 2.8 Mk11 car. She had a hard time not laughing when she whipped her clients, amazed that they actually took it seriously! She told me who `The Man In The Mask` was, he was talked about quiet a bit before he became famous. `Big P` is what you`re getting! Maria did eventually have a daughter in `66, Ocky, but the authorities took her into care when she was about twelve, when it came out Maria was writing a book about her days with Ward, using her slight drug problems as an excuse. Mariella Novotny was found dead on her bed, having `choked on a desert jelly`. Her book has never been found.
