If I could be anyone i'd be...


I expect you are wondering what this post is about...well, it is in support of my writer friend, Talli Roland's launch day for her new release, "Watching Willow Watts". Talli is Canadian but lives in the UK and she came up with this fabulous idea to get all her friends involved.

The reason Beyonce is my 'girl crush'? Sexy, talented, kind and happy...

Willow's impersonation of Marilyn Monroe is a bit part of the story so Talli asked us all who we'd like to be, here's the blurb:

For Willow Watts, life has settled into a predictably dull routine: days behind the counter at her father's antique shop and nights watching TV, as the pension-aged residents of Britain's Ugliest Village bed down for yet another early night. But everything changes when a YouTube video of Willow's epically embarrassing Marilyn Monroe impersonation gets millions of hits after a viewer spots Marilyn's ghostly image in a frame.

Instantly, Willow's town is overrun with fans flocking to see the 'new Marilyn'. Egged on by the villagers -- whose shops and businesses are cashing in -- Willow embraces her new identity, dying her hair platinum and ramming herself full of cakes to achieve Marilyn's legendary curves.

But when a former flame returns seeking the old Willow, Willow must decide: can she risk her stardom and her village's newfound fortune on love, or is being Marilyn her ticket to happiness?

So what about you??

  1. Oh Beyonce! If I only had her booty! If I only had her moves! Maybe someday... or not.

    What a great choice, Rachel! Thank you so much for taking part. :)

  2. What a good choice. Gosh, I'm going to have to think hard about this now.

  3. Wow, great choice, Rachel! Think it would have to be Katharine Hepburn! I admire her courage, her so politically-incorrect lifestyle and her 'I don't care what you think' attitude. A true star.

    Good luck with your release, Talli!
