This Marina Anderson is not the same person as the erotic book genre author.

“It was one long rollercoaster thrill. Mr. Toad’s wild ride. Intense passion and emotion. He was the eye of my tornado.” Marina Anderson

Marina Anderson - established actress, journalist, publicist, jewelry designer, was wife & personal manager of the volatile, dark and brilliant actor, David Carradine, an international sensation as Kwai Chang Caine in the '70s hit TV series Kung Fu, cult hero in the film Death Race 2000, portrayed Woody Guthrie in Hal Ashby’s Bound for Glory and Bill in Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill. Carradine received four Golden Globe nominations and was a talented songwriter and musician.

Their six-years together was a whirl of star-studded parties, red carpets and exotic locations. Marina set about rehabilitating Carradine's career who was known for heavy drinking and was the one who intro'd him to Tarantino, which led to being cast in Kill Bill, and vaulted Carradine back on Hollywood's A-list.

Real-life version of "fifty shades of gray," their life was replete with love, passion, erotic pleasure, and sexual experimentation. The marriage was marred by a toxic secret (incest) that could not be ignored.

With help of re-known celebrity Dr. Drew Pinsky (Celebrity Rehab), issues are confronted with the interview occupying an entire chapter. Anderson was able to exorcise the demons that haunted her in their relationship and herself that almost destroyed her.

She speaks to readers universally by focusing on their personal journey, revealing the truth, addresses conquering fear and overcoming obstacles, self discovery, recovery, re-inventing and rebuilding one’s self. It’s her survival of self in the marriage while desperately trying to save it.

David Carradine died in a Bangkok hotel room, June 3, 2009. Suicide? Foul play? Her conclusions are startling.
