Marcy Margate has it all: she’s young, rich, and built like Barbie. She isn’t the brightest bulb in the chandelier, but the girl’s got sass and spunk to spare. Plus, she’s sizzling hot. When her marriage to a real live genius starts to dim and grow cool, however, she’s puzzled. What went wrong?
Marcy loves her husband, even if Jess Margate is from the planet of the nerds. She decides to play it smart for a change. Using spyware and creative strategy, she plots to find out why her geek has been interruptus. Armed with miniature technology, Marcy plans to uncover the cause for the downtime in their love life.
A modern romantic comedy of hot errors and hotter apologies, Geekus Interruptus is a story for our time. Because these days, nerds rule. And geeks have guilty pleasures too, some quite different than our own.
What are the main themes of your book?
Opposites do attract, and it’s not always a bad thing. He brings out the best in her and vice versa. Often, everybody wins.
But it’s not so easy when you don’t speak geek and that’s his native tongue. This is the theme I wanted to explore in Geekus Interruptus.
Who or what inspired your story?
After reading Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs, I had sexy geeks on the brain. Plus, I live with a young geek. I am struggling to learn the language.
What do you like best and least about your primary characters?
Marcy is plucky. She’s loyal. She cares. Passionately. But she’s kind of dumb. She’s nosy. And she needs a lot of attention. Did I mention her hormones are wacked?
Jess is brilliant. He’s successful and rich. He works. Very hard. But he lives in his head, in his own special world. He doesn’t pay enough attention to his sexy wife. Did I mention he’s a total geek?
How does your main character evolve?
When she thinks her husband is having an extramarital affair, Marcy takes the situation into her own hands. She has to learn to use that brain of hers for more than shopping and seduction. She also has to re-evaluate her marriage. How much does she love this man? And when Jess is confronted with a situation he doesn’t understand, he must remember how much he loves his wife in order to resolve their considerable differences.
Men and women need to get along so we can move the species forward. The good news? It can be done, folks. Couples do it every day. Plus, it can be fun!
What’s the nicest thing anyone has said about your book?
I love reviewers. Read this from Smardy Pants Book Blog:
“This is by far my favorite Mickey J. Corrigan book. So far I’ve only read three of her books and she is HILARIOUS!! I know I will be highly entertained by her shenanigans…I’m not usually one to read stand-alone novellas, but if Mickey J. Corrigan writes it, I’m going to read it!!”
