Black Star: Dorothy Koomson

When the much loved and respected husband and wife team -Richard and Judy (and their audience ) voted Dorothy Koomson's, 'Marshmallows for Breakfast' as a Richard & Judy Summer Read of 2006 – Dorothy went stellar over night. An incredible author -Dorothy's (who is also a journalist and lives in both London and Sydney), books are more than 'Chick lit' -and her modern portrayal of relationships are refreshing. With a global fan base -and many accolades, -all five titles written by Koomson, -'The Cupid Effect' (2003), 'The Chocolate Run' (2004), 'My Best Friend's Girl' (2006), 'Marshmallows for Breakfast' (2006) and her latest title, 'Goodnight, Beautiful' (2008) -have spent over twenty-five weeks on the Sunday Times Best-seller List, and have been translated into twenty-eight languages across the world.

  1. I'm currently reading her new novel Ice Cream girls. Have to support a fellow sister!
    Another good author of Ghanaiain heritage is Lesley Lokko. Her book Bitter Chocolate is one of my favourite books! She describes Ghana beautifully in that book!
