Marian Keyes WannaBe's

By Dee DeTarsio

Marian Keyes is a Virgo, I’m a Virgo. She’s a successful internationally recognized goddess of an author, and I . . . well, I’ve read everything she’s ever written. Her most excellent Ms. Keyes is from Ireland – I love the color green. I expect we would be best friends. From her first book, "Watermelon," (my seventh favorite fruit) to "Sushi for Beginners" (I’m only up to California rolls myself) to "Anybody Out There" — I have loved, read, and reread every word. We are practically sisters!

Goddess Marian Keyes (pictured left)...and her doppelganger, my sister, Beezer, who I sometimes call an eejit!


I met Irish writer, Derick Hudson, on Twitter, and in spite of his book cover that looks like it should be about kidnapped babies, I loved his chick lit novel, "Dysfunctional Romance!", which is $1.99 for Kindle. (Go on, I’ll wait.) I tweeted him, “If @MarianKeyes had a willie she’d be Derick Hudson.” Derick and I killed the afternoon goofing off on Twitter, when lo, trumpets blare, cue the cherabims:










Dee DeTarsio is no stranger to Chick Lit Central. You can check out her guest post from last year. Her most recent novel is "Haole Wood."
