Marie Meyer, Man Buns, and Donald Trump: A Love Story

You guys remember my fabulous friend Marie Meyer? Her book Across the Distance came out in May to stellar reviews. Like this one. And this one. And this one. It even made several bestseller lists on Amazon.

(Basically, I’m famous by proxy now.)

And today, Marie’s second book Can’t Go Back is available.

About Can’t Go Back

When Jillian moved next door, she refused to get out of the car. I climbed into the backseat beside her and promised to never leave her.

Now, I’m driving her a thousand miles away, so she can leave me.

She has to go. What else would she do? Follow me and my band from one cheap bar to another, get hit on by sleazy promoters? Because Jillian would definitely get hit on. She’s the most gorgeous, talented girl I’ve ever known, and she doesn’t even see it.

This scholarship gives Jillian the chance to study at the best design schools in the country. It’s what she’s always wanted. I won’t stand in the way of her dreams, no matter how much it hurts to watch her go. I just wish she wasn’t leaving without knowing the truth.

Monday night, I sat down with Marie at St. Louis’ swankiest Dunkin’ Donuts for a hard-hitting interview. For three hours, we discussed her hopes, dreams, and ideas for world peace. And now, in the interest of sharing Marie’s brilliance, I’ve boiled down our chat to the three most important topics covered.

Me:                 Channing Tatum or Ryan Reynolds?


(Yes, she answers all questions in gifs, I swear.)

Me:                Man buns or mohawks?

Me:               Donald Trump or being attacked by a swarm of bees?
Marie:           Donald Trump how?
Me:              You know–
Marie:           It doesn’t matter. The bees.


Good choices, Marie. Good choices.
