From her website: Marian Keyes was born in Limerick and brought up in Cavan, Cork, Galway and Dublin. She spent her twenties in London, but is now living in Dún Laoghaire with her husband Tony. She studied law and accountancy, and began writing short stories in 1993 "out of the blue." She sent her short stories to a publisher, with a letter saying she’d started work on a novel. The publishers asked to see the novel, and once her panic had subsided, she began to write what subsequently became her first book, Watermelon.
It was published in Ireland in 1995. She has now published 10 novels, all bestsellers, a total of 23 milllion of her books having been sold to date. Anybody Out There won the British Book Awards award for popular fiction; This Charming Man won the Irish Book Award for popular fiction.
In 2009, Marian experienced the start of a major depressive episode, and had to stop any work. Eventually she found that baking cakes helped her survive; and in 2012, she published Saved by Cake, which combined recipes with autobiography.
She is no longer able to make public appearances, but continues to write, and in September 2012 plans to publish The Mystery of Mercy Close, a novel which combines comedy, romance, mystery and an exploration of depression.
As well as novels she has written short stories, and articles for various magazines and other publications.
