Real "50 Shades of Grey” Irish woman goes public with best selling book


“Why should a woman feel almost oppressed by what she wants to do?”

When asked if she plans on writing a second book, Collins said there is always a possibility, but no plans yet. She realizes that it would be easier to sell a second book after her first book has gained so much popularity. Carry recommended that Collins keep a diary, which she is now doing.

‘Can You Keep a Secret?’ is published by Irish publisher Y Books and is now for sale via and the iBookstore, priced at €3.99. To learn more about the book, check out, or you can follow Katie Collins on Twitter @thereal50shades and Robert Carry @carrier11.
