Meet Marianne Morea

Me: “Isn’t that Robyn Peterman?” I gesture to a woman in a purple wig rushing past us in the ballroom.

Event Coordinator, nodding: “Haven’t you two met?”

Me: “Not yet.”

“You’d like her. She’s fabulous and crazy and a bit of a potty mouth, but SO approachable.”
Me grinning. “I think I found my new best bud…”

Of course, that didn’t sound quite as stalkerish in my head as when I said it. Truth be told, Robyn and I didn’t get to know each other until last summer, when I found myself on an author panel with her, Shannon Mayer and Debra Dunbar. Can we talk insecurities? Anyhow, Robyn was grace personified, and when I joked I’d give a kidney to write in her universe, she called my bluff. Not about the kidney, but about writing in her MMU! I was grateful and cool as I accepted but fangirled on the inside like a teenager.
