A true story of a fan who broke all the rules to MEET THE BEATLES”

About Me


"If I had known what she was doing, I would have grounded her!" - ~ ADELE ELIAS, Dee's Mother

Author Dee Elias grew up in rural Ohio as part of the Baby Boomer generation. Like millions of teenagers in those days, she loved the Beatles. She left Cleveland after high school and her life since then has been an adventure, filled with travel and a variety of professional experiences. She’s lived in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and now resides in the little paradise of Santa Barbara, California. Her professional resume’ arcs like a rainbow: she is a certified physical therapist and she’s worked as a real estate agent, esthetician, flight attendant, aerobic exercise instructor, PBS host and she’s done extensive volunteer work here and in Latin America. Part of her adventurous spirit and her entrepreneurial belief that she can do anything she sets her mind to, stems from what happened at the end of this book. Today, she is an author and the owner and CEO of ‘Deetours of Santa Barbara, Inc.’. The company offers FUN wine-tasting tours in Santa Ynez Valley just outside of Santa Barbara in a 2006 red stretched-out jeep limo! “It has been the best job ever,” says Dee, who still loves adventure. She attends a cardio Boot Camp several times a week, is learning Spanish, enjoys tequila, and still loves the Beatles. Ahhhh!!

  • For Immediate Release
    July 30, 2015

    Santa Barbara, California – Santa Barbara author, Dee Elias, has agreed to be a keynote speaker with Julia Baird, John Lennon’s sister, and other well-known Beatle authors, during Beatle Week in Liverpool, England next month.

    Dee’s delightful memoire’, Confessions of a Beatlemaniac, will make its debut in England during the celebration. The book is a funny and touching account of how, as Ohio teenagers, she and her best friends plotted and schemed for two years to meet the Fab Four in person. Their dreams eventually came true, but it is the sweet and superbly written story of their misadventures along the way that makes Elias a star attraction among Beatle fans. “I loved the book…and I was at that concert at Cleveland Stadium in 1964!” U.S. Senator, Sherrod Brown (Ohio), recently wrote to Dee.

    Ms. Baird, who is now part-owner of the Cavern Club in Liverpool, and Jon Keats, Director, Events and Marketing, personally extended the invitation to present her book during Beatle Week and Elias immediately accepted. Beatle Week in Liverpool, which often draws thousands of fans, begins August 29th and a number of events commemorating the world’s most famous rock band are planned.

    {The book is available at: Dee is available for interviews before and after her trip to Liverpool. She is the founder and owner of DeeTours of Santa Barbara Wine Tours, headquartered in Santa Barbara, California.}
