How I became a ghostwriter (Literally speaking!)

Next August 5th, it will mark 55 years since that fatidic day when a shooting star was shot and short lived, or rather, her life was shortened. In fact her light came down so unexpectedly, and yet she was so bright that not even shutting her for good down here was enough to shut her down completely. That candle was blown away from lighting the Earth, or so they thought. Like a lightning bolt she came and she disappeared from the face of the Earth. But how come that light would vanish forever like that? Well, in fact, she didn't. She was such a delight that she remains shinning on. And you know by now the light from whom I am talking... Exactly, that bombshell called Marilyn Monroe. So, once I channeled that powerful energy, nothing could stop her from telling me the truth behind so many lives which revolved around her. So here's an interview I had with her just after I had published the book The Mysterious Murder of Marilyn Monroe and available for free on kindle unlimited. :

First of all, I have to tell you that's with immense pleasure that I get to do this interview with you. But first things first, let's get to the basics.

MM: Oh, I'm so faltered (giggles). Just kidding, I'm really flattered. I'm sure it will be a delight!

My first question: What's your name?

Hmmm.... (coughing) Marilyn Monroe

Me: No, I mean your real name... the one that they gave you, that is on your birth certificate.

MM: Norma Jean

Me: Don't you have a family name?

MM: Well, that I can choose from, sure, I've got plenty, since I was adopted by so many families, before I got married and then became a movie star.

Me: I mean, from your birth certificate.

MM: Mortenson but then I took my mother's family name, Monroe. You know, my mother was mentally unstable and she struggled to live as a single mother after her divorce. Actually, I wasn't sure who my father was either, but I am pretty sure Clark Gable would be perfect for that role!

Me: Precisely. Doesn't that help you have an identity crisis in the middle of the way?

MM: Sure, Ma' am, but I am a Gemini, I would get an evil twin in a way or another. (giggles) But even my evil side made me go visit mom at the hospital as much as I could.

Me: And with all that, being adopted and all the struggles you had to face during a period of time when you most need support. I mean, you shouldn't be having to deal with problems like this at such a tender age. So how was your childhood like?

MM: Go figure. It was not that tough. But that is a tender question for me and I really don't want to talk about it. Let's just say it was tender.

Me: Sure. My bad.

MM: No, it's just that you are touching some sensitive parts that I don't want to go back to. If I don't have to, why bother now?

Me: You are totally right, Miss Monroe and I apologize for that.

MM: No worries, It is your job after all. Are you a Library lover and a liberal writer with Ascending sign in Libra who loves justice and wants to know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth?

Me: Yes, I do.

MM: So do I. But some truths are better left alone.

Me. Perfectly fine with that statement. Let´s move on. Did you have any friends, and I mean, real friends to count on in your life as a mega star?

MM: You know, diamonds are a girl's best friend.

Me: So I will just assume that you had some good friends who were worth just like the diamonds you mentioned.

MM: Hmmm, yeah, you can say that.

Me: I am not going to recur along your career because everyone knows about that already. But I have one more question that I am sure is something everyone being your fan or not would love to know. What happened that dreadful night and what (or who) killed you? I smell a rat... Actually, a rat pack!

MM: No, I don't know what you meant by rats, but, no, it was not the mafia. Or was it? If they were also involved, I really don't know. All that I remember it was being on the phone, talking to a friend of mine and then hearing some footsteps-And then all went black... But I am pretty sure you pulled some strings in your book. Congratulations!

Me: Oh thank you, that really means the world to me that you like my book.

MM: I love it. It shows so much more than I would ever imagine when I chose you to be my ghostwriter.

Me: I was not a ghostwriter, only sensitive enough to capture what you wanted to reveal. After all, YOU are the ghost here.

MM: That's right.

Me: Thank you so much for taking the time to talking through some pretty heavy stuff. I know you must be rather busy in the after life. BTW, how is that??

MM: A delight, my friend... a delight in the light! (giggles)

Me: Now, I'm the one shinning like a diamond. I'm touched. You called me friend!
