Doreen Orion is the author of newly released Queen of the Road, "The True Tale of 47 States, 22,000 Miles, 200 Shoes, 2 Cats, 1 Poodle, a Husband, and a Bus with a Will of its Own." She's also a humor essayist and has written many stellar essays, a few can be found on Huffington Post here and here. Run. Read. Now. Fab.
Recently, Doreen was featured on Nevada NPR. You must listen to her dish Queen of the Road. She also blogs, "Medicinal Musings from a Mobile Shrink, AKA Queen of the Road".
I'm sure you've seen her around All the Way from Oy to Vey, she's left deliciously sarcastic comments-- she's just like us.
In this moment, Doreen is schlepping around the country reading and signing her book. I am looking forward to attending one of her readings because (A) she's a riot. (B) She wears a boa. (C) At her Las Vegas reading at Borders Books, an Elvis renewed one lucky couple's vows. what's not to love?!
I just bought Queen of the Road and should have it in a few days (I can't wait to read it). The minute I run into Mrs. Orion, I am going to beg her to sign it. I've dished with her plenty over email and she's as adorable, sweet, brilliant and hysterical as you'd imagine her to be. A genuine and cozy broad, like latkes and sour cream with homemade applesauce. Her work is as fabulous as she is.
You must run and buy yourself a copy of the Queen's book assssssssssssappy. Follow her book tour on her blog. Catch a reading. Check out her essays on HuffPo and listen to her podcasts, filled with excerpts from her book. She's SO FUNNY. I adore the girl.
Mazel Tov, bubbie!
