Editorial Reviews

From the Author

"My Friend Marilyn" poses an intriguing what-if question: What would happen if you were pulled into a twisted Cinderella love story with Marilyn Monroe as your fairy godmother? The answer: Plenty.
I describe the novel as "Bridesmaids" meets "Some Like It Hot," with a Melissa McCarthy-ish character who's having the time of her life, but with someone ending up dead. 
This is a classic fish-out-of-water story that's part Hollywood fantasy, part romance, part ghost story and wholly unforgettable. Marilyn Monroe was seen by many, but known by few, and that mystique continues. Considering today's discussions about body-image and body-shaming, I wanted to explore what might have happened if an outwardly confident plus-size girl is befriended by the most beautiful woman on the planet--who, by the way, had major confidence and body-image issues.
"My Friend Marilyn" intertwines history and myth to tell a tale of acceptance, friendship and love. It's the first novel in the new Great American Destination Series which offers historical-fiction books set at locations readers can visit today.

From the Back Cover

What would happen if you were pulled into a twisted Cinderella love story with Marilyn Monroe as your fairy godmother? Plenty. 
Imagine this: Penny Parker, a curvy dime-store cashier, longs for a best girlfriend. When she wins a contest, she gets one: Marilyn Monroe. She'll be the on-set assistant to the iconic star for eight precious days during the filming of "Some Like It Hot" in 1958. Penny's black-and-white life turns Technicolor as she becomes part of Marilyn's world of smoldering secrets, sinister strangers and jaw-dropping bombshells. 
The emotional whirlwind uncovers Penny's confusing attraction to childhood buddy, Frankie Holland. And in what could be a happily ever after moment, Hollywood's smartest dumb blonde steps in to play fairy godmother to her newfound--and unlikely--Cinderella. 
Penny sneaks Marilyn out of the famed Hotel del Coronado near San Diego and into the real world. With the help of old friends and new--and a ghost or two--Penny discovers there's a ruthless killer on the loose who has Marilyn in the crosshairs. Together, Penny and Marilyn discover how hearts can sometimes see what eyes cannot. 
Pure movie magic that's as entertaining as a three-martini lunch with the gals, My Friend Marilyn intertwines history and myth to tell a tale of acceptance, friendship and love.
