She vigorously played the dumb-blonde stereotype in her movie roles, but there is nothing at all dumb about Marilyn Monroe. Born to a single mother who suffered from severe mental illness, the odds were stacked against the girl originally named Norma Jeane from the very beginning. She became a ward of the state and bounced around from foster home to foster home. The fact that she rose from such impoverished beginnings to become one of the top-billed acts in Hollywood speaks for itself.

Inside you will read about...

✓ From Foster Child to Movie Star
✓ The Scene with the White Dress
✓ Marilyn the Jew
✓ Diagnosis of Paranoid Schizophrenia
✓ Marilyn’s First Overdose
✓ The Presidential Affair
✓ Locked in the Psych Ward
And much more!

Discover the life and legend that is Marilyn Monroe.

Memed-Romane (Reihe in 4 Bänden)
Aus Band 1: In den abgelegenen Dörfern am Rande des anatolischen Taurusgebirges herrscht der Grundbesitzer Abdi Aga. Der Boden ist so elend, dass fast nur Disteln auf ihm wachsen. Und von jeder Ernte fordert der Aga zwei Drittel. Memed, der Bauernsohn, hat seinen Hass auf sich gezogen. Er wird zur Flucht in die Berge gezwungen.

Aus dem schmächtigen, ängstlichen Knaben wird ein Räuber, Rebell und Rächer des Volkes. Im Kampf gegen den Aga verliert Memed schließlich alles: seine Mutter, seine Braut, den fruchtbaren Acker, den die Bauern ihm nach der Amnestie bereithalten. Aber als die Rache an Abdi Aga vollzogen ist, führen die Bauern jedes Jahr die Ernten in die eigenen Scheunen. Und bei dem Freudenfest vor dem Pflügen erscheint auf dem Berg, hinter dem Memed verschwunden ist, eine Feuerkugel.

Iraqi Americans (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: The War Generation, the first of the Iraqi Americans book series, is a collection of 36 articles that Weam Namou wrote over the years which paint a picture of Iraqi Americans’ political and social situation and their struggles. Namou writes, “The views that leaders, politicians and activists I interviewed had about Iraq and the United States fascinated me, especially since their views largely differed from, or were not found in, mainstream media. Given these people’s direct connection to both countries, I felt it was important that their stories and perspectives be heard.”

A full color book, The War Generation has a large focus on Christianity and the biblical city of Nineveh because, after the 2003 US-led invasion, Christians were heavily targeted by fundamentalists. Many leaders foresaw the genocide that began in June 2014 against this group of people and tried for over a decade to establish an autonomous region in Nineveh for Christians and other minorities in Iraq. Their efforts were in vain.

The Bregdan Chronicles Historical Fiction Romance Series (13 Book Series)
From Book 1:

Review:  Best Historical Fiction series I have ever read!  Keep them coming! ~ Dotti

I expected to like this book.  I did not expect to be hooked! This series is, quite simply, the best historical fiction I have ever read. I’m in love with the characters, I can’t sleep because I’m too busy reading, I have learned more than I ever thought possible, and I’ve been inspired to become a better person. My advice to you? READ THEM!   ~ Jeri

Storm Clouds Rolling In is the first book in the ongoing Bregdan Chronicles historical novel series. It's readers like you who have turned it into a world-wide best-seller. Thank you! 

Book Description: Carrie Cromwell comes of age as the dark clouds of the Civil War swallow the country. Born with a fiery spirit and a strong mind, this strong woman finds herself struggling between the common wisdom of the South and the devastating truth she has discovered. 

The activities of the Underground Railroad and her close friendships with the Cromwell Plantation slaves create agonizing choices. But when her decisions put her at odds with her heritage, and challenge her dreams, will she be able to give up all that is precious to her? What price will she be willing to pay?

This first book of The Bregdan Chronicles historical fiction series will pull you in and never let you go. You'll experience the Civil War era (and all the years to come) through the eyes of both White and Black, free & slave, Southern & Northern - and you'll fall in love with every character. How many books will there be? Ginny has no idea - she intends to write these character's stories for as long as she can!  

Review:  I never thought I would find a series to enthrall me like The Bregdan Chronicles has. I was wrong! I am struggling to find appropriate words to describe the awe I am in, and I find myself failing miserably. I absolutely could not put these books down. I would finish one, and immediately hop online to go get the next one....sometimes in the wee hours of the morning, when my tail should have been asleep. The writing style of this author brings you right into the story as if you are a part of it. She has amazing talent to capture the imagination, and bring you right into a virtual reality. I have fallen in love with every one of these characters - especially the strong women! - and have become completely entranced with each life represented.

The historical account of this time period was so right on, so very vivid, you almost feel like you've walked right into it. These books became so alive, I actually had dreams at night of battle. (I'm not even kidding.) But it goes further. There were conversations in these books that had me reading over them several times. Life lessons. Sage advice. The kind of wisdom that comes from every day life. Moments that were so profound, they pierced my heart with an accuracy that I can't even begin to explain. Many times, the lives and hearts of each character were changed and rocked with revelation that came about in a moment, yet, so deeply touching the deepest recesses of the heart, that you can't go beyond it, without it having changed you as well, as you read it.

Thank you Ginny Dye...not only for an amazing journey....but for those light bulb moments,throughout each book, that reached beyond the pages, and made their home inside the soul. What can I say overall? Well, let me put it like this: these books are like...

A Legend of the Net Age (3 Book Series)
From Book 1: An ambitious, sprawling and poetic coming-of-age novel told in three volumes, CIRCUITS OF THE WIND is the story of Ray Valentine, who grows up in the online underground of the '80s and '90s, looking for a connection that's always just a little out of reach, and learning all the lessons that the rest of us are only facing now.

VOLUME ONE of CIRCUITS OF THE WIND follows a young Raymond from his '70s childhood—and first gropings with the telephone—to the home computers and bulletin boards of the '80s, where he leads a double life as a wanderer of the wires. But when even his virtual best friend unplugs, Raymond might have to leave it, too—because isn't real life supposed to be offline?

Lebenswege (Reihe in 6 Bänden)
Aus Band 1: Ostberlin, 1986. Die achtzehnjährige Anna zieht in den Prenzlauer Berg, lebt vom Verkauf selbstgenähter Jacken und träumt davon, eine angesagte Modedesignerin zu sein. Sie lernt Ritchie kennen, einen jungen Westberliner, der sie mit Stoffen versorgt. Eine intensive Liebesbeziehung zwischen den beiden beginnt. Doch bald kommt es zu Schwierigkeiten: Anna bekommt keine Genehmigungen für ihr Modegeschäft - um nicht wegen „asozialer Lebensweise“ verhaftet zu werden, geht sie mit einem Journalisten ein Scheinarbeitsverhältnis ein und gerät in einen Strudel von Abhängigkeiten.

„Anna. Sehnsucht.“ ist der erste Roman der Reihe „Lebenswege“; einem literarischen Projekt, das die DDR-Thematik aus einer anderen Perspektive angeht. Es beschreibt Biografien, die anscheinend unbeeinflusst von Stasi und Staatsmacht verlaufen sind, schildert anhand des heutigen Forschungsstandes die Umbrüche in den 80er Jahren und schlägt einen Bogen vom Damals ins Heute.

"Das Buch vermittelt in Romanform einen subjektiven Eindruck vom Leben in der DDR. Anschaulich werden aus der Perspektive der Protagonistin ihr Leben, ihre Wohn- und Lebensverhältnisse und ihr Weg in die Illegalität beschrieben. … Der Roman sei denen empfohlen, die auf leichte Art etwas über ungewöhnliche Lebensläufe in einem diktatorischen Staat erfahren möchten."

Cornelia Bronder, Zeitschrift des Forschungsverbundes SED-Staat an der Freien Universität Berlin (Nr. 37/15)

"Ich habe mich bestens informiert und unterhalten gefühlt und vergebe sehr gerne 5 von 5 Sternen!" (Leserin auf LovelyBooks)

"Ich bin geradezu in dieses Buch hineingetaucht. Ich war erschüttert, welche Kleinigkeiten damals schon ausreichten, um einen Menschen als Feind anzusehen. ... Rainer Schneider hat ein beeindruckendes Buch geschrieben. Ich werde die Reihe weiter verfolgen" (Leserin auf LovelyBooks)

"Das Lokalkolorit der damaligen Zeit wird sehr authentisch wiedergegeben, so dass man sich in diese Zeit zurückversetzt fühlt." (Leserin auf LovelyBooks)

"Ich freue mich auf weitere Bücher aus der Serie Lebenswege." (Leserin auf LovelyBooks)

"Dieses Buch gehört zu den besten, die ich bis jetzt in diesem Jahr gelesen habe!" (Leserin auf LovelyBooks)
