Until one day she is struck by a serious illness, landing her in the hospital for months. After recovering, Stella finds out that her neurologist, Dr. Mannix Taylor, has compiled and self-published a memoir about her illness. Her discovery comes when she spots a photo of the finished copy in an American tabloid-and it's in the hands of the vice president's wife!

Marian Keyes (born 10 September 1963) is an Irish Book Awards-winner Irish novelist and non-fiction writer, best known for her work in women's literature. She has sold over more 22 million copies worldwide and been translated into 32 languages.[1] She became known worldwide for their best-sellers, Watermelon, Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married and This Charming Man, which is considered one of the first authors to have the subject Chick Lit in their books.

Biography

Born in Limerick and raised in Monkstown, Keyes earned a law degree from Dublin University, but immediately disregarded it, left Ireland and became a waitress in London, feeling as though she did not deserve a well-paid career. Keyes began composing short stories after she found work in an accounts office, but initially had no intention of completing a novel, arguing that it would take too long.

In this period of her life, she underwent a severe struggle with alcoholism, but overcame this in 1995 at a rehabilitation center in Dublin, Ireland.

However, following a letter back from the publisher whom she'd sent her manuscripts to, she began work on a book, and thus her first feature-length story, Watermelon, was born. Known for her self-deprecation, Keyes often says that she "became a writer by accident".

Style

Although many of her novels are known as comedies, they are often filled with dark themes including domestic violence, drug abuse, mental illness, divorce and alcoholism, most of which are loosely based on her own life experiences.

She is regarded by her fans as a pioneer of the so-called 'chick-lit' genre[citation needed]; her stories usually revolve around a strong female character who overcomes numerous obstacles to achieve lasting happiness.

Personal life

Keyes currently lives in Dún Laoghaire with her husband Tony, after moving back from London in 1997. She suffers from severe clinical depression, and attempted suicide in 1994; she has since talked frankly about her battle with the disease.[2]
