CIA Agent Claims He Assassinated Marilyn Monroe


Hi all!

Check out this latest bit of news.


It’s said that fiction reveals the truth that reality obscures. We have been told many times that our story proves it by so honestly recounting the killings of Monroe and Kennedy in the form of fiction, and so realistically portraying the killers, that the novel’s authenticity strikes true.

Check out books 1 and 2 for yourself.  Here are the links:

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A New York City subway train holds 1,200 people. This blog was viewed about 4,000 times in 2014. If it were a NYC subway train, it would take about 3 trips to carry that many people.

Click here to see the complete report.

It’s been a great year for Kim and myself.  We want to thank you all for being a part of it!!  We wish you a blessed 2015!!

On a side note, Kim and I are working like mad to get book three finished.  🙂

FBI files link Kennedy to Monroe death

Wow! It never ceases to amaze us what a person can dig up!!  This story starts back in 2007 with Phillipe Mora wanting to do a film about the 1960’s and the end of innocence for America.  What he uncovers has the FBI and other Government officials scrambling for cover.  Mora states that in the West Hollywood Library, while doing internet research of the 60’s, he lands in the Freedom of Information Act section of the FBI files.  He stumbles across the Marilyn Monroe FBI file on her and what he reads literally sets his world on fire.

While perusing the site, Mr. Mora see’s a list of stars names and Marilyn Monroe instantly catches his eye.  After all, she was certainly one of the tragic iconic figures of the 1960’s.  A file named “Robert Kennedy” was inside her file which stated that he had been in her house the morning of her death; that he had then flown to San Francisco and called Peter Lawford and asked, ”Is she dead yet?”

Mr. Mora states that this file was initialed by various high up FBI executives, close to Hoover, and had been opened a few times according to the dates on the file – and was now released.  The file was sordid, horrible and frightening.  Mr. Mora did think that this could either have been a fake planted by Kennedy haters or it was indeed startling history. Either way, the question still remained ‘why was it buried?’  He noticed that various parts were blacked out.  The information contained within still to incriminating for them to be seen in their entirety.

Mora emailed his editor, Paola Totaro in Sydney, a prominent journalist (who later became Vice President, Foreign Press Association in London) attaching the files for her to read.  After some moments, she emailed and said this is front-page stuff, legally cleared, etc. – go and write about it.

Sydney is 17 hours ahead of L.A.  The story appeared on the Sydney Morning Herald’s March 17, 2007 front page: FBI files link Kennedy to Monroe death. Saturday early morning in L.A.  Mora’s phone was ringing off the hook.  He was now being asked to appear on CNN, Fox, ABC, etc. in the US and every major paper from London, to Moscow, to Germany ran it as well.  According to an executive at ABC, pressure was on to stop the story in the U.S, but internationally and on the net, the story was well and truly out.

For us, this is another piece of a huge jigsaw puzzle of the conspiracy/mystery of the 1960’s.  Marilyn Monroe, John F Kennedy, Mary Pinchot, Robert Kennedy are just a few of the staring characters in the world of cover-ups.  The FBI, Secret Service, and CIA all have secrets.  Some are for the good of mankind and some are for the good of one man.  Either way, a curious public will continue to search, ask and seek out the truth.  Whether we will ever find the truth is another matter.

In Philippe Mora’s own words:

“It quickly became apparent to me that the murder of JFK really started that part of the sixties associated with total loss of faith in the establishment.

If JFK could be murdered in that fashion then the powers that be had failed. It was the end of innocence.

I sought and got permission from the Zapruder family to use the famous film. I found a reverse angle on the assassination and saw a moving object on top of a vehicle on the grassy knoll that could have been a person.

The rough-cut was screened for producer David Puttnam, executives at Casablanca Filmworks and Columbia Pictures including Bill Tennant, Columbia boss Dan Melnick and an incoming boss at Columbia who was replacing Melnick.

The film began with great color home movies of JFK, Jackie and family in a montage with Richard Burton singing “Camelot.” It was simple and effective.

Then the deluge of assassinations and chaos, Vietnam, psychedelics, cultural and political trauma.

Shortly after screening the producer David Puttnam and I were locked out of our office and cutting room respectively and the film completely stopped.

I am no stranger to controversy but looking back I sense that Marilyn’s story is still highly charged.

As the Monroe files story expanded across the media clearly public interest in her remains undiminished after over half a century. The questions still remain.

The saga continues. As recently as August 2 this year, the Associated Press and then international papers reported that some FBI files on Monroe had gone missing.”  ~~ Mr. Mora believes that these are the very files he had seen and emailed to his editor.

See a comic book treatment of Mora’s story below.

This is why I (T.L.) LOVE research!!  This is exactly the kind of information I have found while doing the research for our book “What She Knew.”  We will always believe that Marilyn Monroe knew too much and that it was ‘what she knew’ that got her killed.

Poetry Marilyn Style!

What comes to mind when you think of Marilyn? Words like glamor, star, sex goddess, beauty, actress, singer, tease possibly? These are some of the words we would use and come easily to our minds. Well, what about writer? Poet? We have to say, that poetry is not something we ever really thought of Marilyn ever being interested in.

It’s refreshing to see, that even in her writing, she was a free spirit. Her words didn’t need to rhyme, the prose didn’t have to be elegant or important, and she was happy with ‘just getting my thoughts onto paper.’ Marilyn really loved reading too. It wasn’t something she advertised, because “who would ever believe a blond bombshell could be smart?”

Here are some of her original poetry:

O, Time Be Kind

O, Time
Be Kind
Help this weary being
To forget what is sad to remember
Loose my loneliness,
Ease my mind,
While you eat my flesh.


I am of both your directions
Existing more with the cold frost
Strong as a cobweb in the wind
Hanging downward the most
Somehow remaining
those beaded rays have the colours
I’ve seen in paintings-ah life
they have cheated you
thinner than a cobweb’s thread
sheerer than any-
but it did attach itself
and held fast in strong winds
and singed by the leaping hot fires
life-of which at singular times
I am both of your directions-
somehow I remain hanging downward the most
as both of your directions pull me

Nite of the Nite

Night of the Nite-soothing-
Seems different-Night has
No eyes nor no one-Silence-
except to the Night itself

I Could Have Loved You Once

I could have loved you once
and even said it
But you went away,
When you came back it was too late
And love was a forgotten word.

From Time To Time

From time to time
I make it rhyme
but don’t hold that kind
of thing
Oh well, what the hell,
so it won’t sell.
What I want to tell-
is what’s on my mind:
‘taint Dishes,
‘taint Wishes,
it’s thoughts
flinging by
before I die-
and to think
in ink.

My Song

My sex is ice cream
come to me
there’s a tender dream
to share
I’m every man’s love affair
with America
sweet angel of sex
sugar of sex
and tender
I ask no price
I’m waiting between the sheets
a rare sexy morning
take me
I’m easy
I’m happy
child-goddess nymphet
child of the universe
my skin glowing
my undergarment
I’m an angel of sex, you bet
and as the poet says
when you drink a beer to me
(even yet)
Let a smile come to your lips.

Blessings, K.R. and T.L.

Just keep reading, just keep reading….

Lately, we’ve been reading like crazy!! Believe it or not, K.R. and I are not pros at this book promotion stuff. And trust me when I say “that’s an understatement!” We have been working hard at learning the under side of the book writing world.

As an author, you work hard at developing a story line, character definitions, plot lines, and other details associated with writing a great story. Those things come easily, most days. That’s the fun side, or the up side of writing. The not so fun side, or the under side of writing, is promotion. We all have to do it. It doesn’t matter if you are an indie author or with one of the big 6, you still have to promote – yourself. You still have to develop an online platform, a fan base, a readership.

For some of you who are new to this too, we’ve come up with a few people who we recommend for you to glean knowledge from. These authors have walked this path before. We’ve listed their blogs/websites below for you to read for yourself. We recommend that you follow their blogs, so you can keep learning. And, not just these we have mentioned, but search out some mentors of your own to learn from. Remember: You’re never to old to learn, or too smart.

~~ Tonya Kappes is one of our favorites. She has great tips and advice on how to be a well-rounded author!! http://tonyakappes.blogspot.com/

~~ Jamie Lee Scott is another of our fave’s!! She also has great tips and advice for authors of books and scripts. http://www.jamieleescott.com/

~~ Kim Emerson of MasterKoda is our all time favorite person. She is truly an authors best friend. Her website will walk you through everything you need to get your book off the ground. She also has an excellent Facebook group called masterkoda. Ask to join today. You will find yourself in the best ‘support group’ for all things written. http://www.masterkoda.com

Well, as you can see, we have several favorites. These ladies just have so much to offer and they offer it freely. They have made it their goal to help others. They succeed at it too. For us, it’s not just about the practical business side of life. Being good at business is a must; however, being good at life is even more of a must!! And these ladies have both.

Along with reading and learning about your craft; having mentors that help you in your journey; you also need to set up some ‘be’ings for yourself. Ground rules if you will. Below, we share some things we’ve learned in life. Nothing new for sure, and they have been stated by many before us. However, they are worth repeating. We know, by experience, that they work for all aspects of life; both the personal and the business. And, when practiced regularly, they make for a rich, fulfilling life.

~ Be generous – always give more than you take.

~ Be mindful of how you talk – when you speak, make sure you are adding to another’s life, not taking away from it.

~ Be inspiring – lift others up, encourage them to seek their dreams.

~ Be ‘in the moment’ – take the extra minute, and pour yourself into another’s life.

~ Be curious – never stop wondering why or why not. Solutions abound if we will but act!

By being intentional about how you interact with others, you will naturally feed your success along with theirs. We encourage you to keep reading, to reach out, and ‘be’ for others.

Blessings to you all, K.R. and T.L.

Excellent Book Review from the Times Record News

Just wanted to share with you an awesome review we received from the Times Record News in Wichita Falls, Texas on our last book tour through the Panhandle. We’ve pasted the article here for your quick view. The actual web link is below the article. A huge thanks to Sharon Chance for taking the time to review “What She Knew.”

Monroe novel explores alternative conspiracy

Authors to sign book as Hastings

By Sharon Galligar Chance Special to the Times Record News

Friday, May 25, 2012

What if Marilyn Monroe really hadn’t died? What if she knew information that made her a target? What if her death was faked to save her life?

These questions are the basis for fiction novel “What She Knew,” by K.R. Hughes and T.L. Burns. The authors will sign copies of the book at from 1-4 p.m. Saturday at Hastings.

While some believe Monroe didn’t commit suicide but was actually murdered on that fateful night in August 1962, the question remains, what was the reason for her demise?

Hughes and Burns explore the idea that she had to be killed because of threatening information she knew. Was it Hollywood or the studios? Her involvement with the Rat Pack? Mobsters? Her association with the Kennedy’s?

The story opens in 1962, when forces were at work in a plot to kill America’s sex goddess and keep her from divulging information she may have picked up during her relationship with President John F. Kennedy. While mobster Sam Giancana played nice with Frank Sinatra, Frank was being equally nice to Kennedy’s brother-in-law, Peter Lawford, to enter the political circles Monroe had access to.

In this alternative conspiracy story, Monroe does not die by suicide but is saved by Peter Lawford and Bobby Kennedy, who replace the real Monroe with a body double so the world thinks she is dead. Badly beaten and bruised, she struggles to come to grips with her near-death experience and the realization that everything she worked for is gone.

With the country mourning their favorite sex goddess, it is a race against time to see if Monroe can save a country and the president.

Hughes is a native Texan with a degree in English. She has written historical fiction novels under the pen name Kymber Lee. Her writing partner, T.L. Burns, is from California and researched the information for “What She Knew.” They reside in Atlanta.

Burns and Hughes are working on the sequel to “What She Knew,” called, “What She Knew Too — The Saga Continues.”

“What She Knew” has been optioned for film rights by Gator Creek Artists Entertainment, with plans to turn the story into a feature film.


Thanks for joining us today! Have a blessed one! K.R. and T.L.
