I’m now in the home stretch of my Films of Marilyn Monroe book. With about 10,000 words left to write, I’d like to know that I’ve approached everyone possible for their thoughts and opinions on Marilyn Monroe’s career. Let it be said that while there are still several people alive who associated with Marilyn Monroe, not many of them are willing to talk. Or, for some reason, they agree to an interview and then back out. As a writer, it’s frustrating beyond belief. The tight-lipped group of individuals left who can possibly shed some light on her life are refusing to talk. While there’s been a lot of books written about Marilyn Monroe over the years, believe me, we haven’t even touched the sides when it comes to knowing it all.
In any case, if you knew Marilyn Monroe, or know of someone who knew her, please contact me at – firstname.lastname@example.org

Today, July 18th, 2012, would have been the 104th birthday of Lupe Vélez. It’s been sixty-eight years since her self-inflicted death at age thirty-six. A Hollywood tragedy. So unexpected. So heartbreaking. A light that was snuffed out way too early…
That said…almost seventy years on from her passing and the world is STILL talking about her!
I’m thrilled to announce that my latest book, Lupe Vélez: The Life and Career of Hollywood’s “Mexican Spitfire” was released last week, the same month as her birthday. Great timing!
Well, sadly, the passing of actress, Celeste Holm (age 95) has once again confirmed the ol’ “they die in 3’s” adage. We’ve lost Andy Griffith, Ernest Borgnine and Celeste Holme within a couple of weeks of each other, however, their collective contribution to film and television will be forever remembered by us all.
I’m thrilled to announce that my latest book, Lupe Vélez: The Life and Career of Hollywood’s “Mexican Spitfire” is now available for immediate shipment if ordered directly from my publisher. The official publication date was July 11, 2012!
I’m yet to receive my copies, but if anyone else receives their order before me, I’d really love to hear your thoughts and opinions.
Massive thanks again to my family and friends (you know who you are) for your loyal and enthusiastic support along the way 🙂
One word – Why?!
On the heels of Andy Griffith’s recent death, we lose yet another Hollywood great- Ernest Borgnine. He was 95!
