Marilyn Monroe – A Hollywood Legend and Her "Secret Diaries"

There may be no actress on Earth better known than the iconic Marilyn Monroe.

From the foster home child, Norma Jeane Mortensen-Baker, through her rise as Marilyn Monroe, one of the most sought after stars to ever hit the screen, her life was filled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.

There have been numerous biographies and articles written about virtually every aspect of her fabeled life. Many speculate about her death and the missing hours between the discovery of her body and when medical assistance was finally called.

Despite any and all writings, there is, unfortunately, nothing definitive and that mystery will probably so remain: accident, suicide, murder?

Approximately one-and-one-half years ago, Vanity Fair magazine presented a cover story concerning the contents of what is being called Marilyn’s Secret Diaries.

Hidden away in two locked file cabinets were scores and scores of momentos, recipts, notes and other bits of the private, larger-than-life, sex symbol.

The short video below provides a glimpse into the contents of the cabinets. The magzine provides the overall picture and may be found on amazon.


The years pass. Marilyn endures. Her mystery is sure to provide writers with ample fodder for a long time to come.

Marilyn left behind a body of work for which she could be proud and which people around the world continue to enjoy.

In 2001 computer/cyber crime was in its infancy.

Winston Reilly had an opportunity to make millions in an apparently risk-free operation.

All he had to do was simply steal the next generation security software, Security Achievement System (SASy for short), created by small-player TeleComm, at the company’s office.

Sometimes things are not quite so easy.

Darkness Descends – A Crime Thriller

Darkness Descends, the crime thriller by Scott Frank (aka Scott D Welch) is available on Kindle or as a quality paperback edition.

New York Times bestselling author, Clive Cussler, said this: “I truly enjoyed it. A real spellbinder with a multitude of twists and turns through a labyrinth of intrigue. A read not easily forgotten…a timeless tale of suspense.”

Two weeks prior to graduation Chris Walker, high school senior and state champion in the 100- and 200-meter dashes, jogs by a 7-Eleven store and hears a sound in the alley. Curious, he slows and, while witnessing what he believes to be a murder, accidentally kicks a can. He is spotted and immediately turns and runs, narrowly escaping.

He does not know what to do or where to go until events force him to confront his innermost principles, and corresponding fears, and what follows becomes a cat and mouse game leading the police into a mountain community in a desperate attempt to free the town’s mayor, who had been kidnapped as part of a master plan devised by the two men Chris had seen earlier.

The Kindle version is available here: Darkness Descends Kindle Edition.

For those who prefer the actual book: Darkness Descends Quality Paperback.

Darkness Descends Available On Kindle

This blogger’s crime thriller, Darkness Descends, written under the pseudonym Scott Frank, is now available, as of today, on Kindle.

The absolute highpoint of this endeavor was when New York Times bestselling author, Clive Cussler, said this about the book:“I truly enjoyed it. A real spellbinder with a multitude of twists and turns through a labyrinth of intrigue. A read not easily forgotten…a timeless tale of suspense.”

It doesn’t get much better than that.

A little about Darkness Descends:

Two weeks before graduation beautiful high school senior Courtney Atkinson is brutally beaten, raped and left for dead by two escaped convicts.

Track star Chris Walker was spotted by one of the assailants as he witnessed the assault and then fled.

What did he see? What does he know? Why is the mayor-Courtney’s uncle-subsequently kidnapped? And what does Chris do about all of this?

As any publisher’s marketing department would tell you, those questions can only be answered if you read the book. 
The Kindle version is available here: Darkness Descends Kindle.
 For those who prefer the hardcopy, a quality paperback version is available here: Darkness Descends hardcopy.
