If I Could Be Anyone, I'd Be ...

Sandra Bullock.

Because she's beautiful, funny, and a wonderful actress... and I'd be insisting on making more movies with Bradley Cooper. 

(And Rachel Brimble is Beyonce, who would have been my other choice, because she's a beautiful singer and dancer).

The reason for doing this?  Talli Roland's new book Watching Williow Watts is released today!

About Watching Willow Watts
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?

I read The Hating Game and really enjoyed Talli's fresh voice. I look forward to reading this one too (just have a large pile to read, Talli, but promise to get to it soon).
