Another success---trained in the law...chick-lit writer extraordinaire!

Marion Keyes!

From Writers Digest, July 2004.

"Keyes' life hasn't always been bestsellers and quirky launch parties. In fact, she didn't even start writing until the age of 30, at a terrible time in her life when she was battling alcoholism and contemplating suicide in London."

"Both of my parents thought that the way for a happy future was to get some kind of professional qualifications. I studied law and studied accountancy, and I just never thought I could write. But I really loved books and reading. And narrative and storytelling were a part of me."
