A STORY FILLED WITH PASSION, NON-STOP ACTION AND MILITARY GALLANTRY. Max knew the drugs and alcohol would eventually kill him, and sooner rather than later. So he enlisted in the Marines. His timing is unfortunate, as the events of 9/11 find him at the beginning of his military service, and he is sent to Iraq. The journey he embarks on is unlike anything he could ever imagine. From Washington, Boston and New Orleans to the ancient sands of Iraq, Max and his entourage endure the toils of war with courage, patriotism, heartache and passion. Only one weapon gets them through the anguish they come face to face with: Music. This vel is a tribute to the author's son who served as a Marine, and to all Veterans. This book has been enjoyed by many, but more importantly it has been used as a healing aid for many who served as well as for their families. Warrior Music is Book 3 of the Music Trilogy. Peace of Music (Book 1) and Obsession of the Heart (Book 2) complete the trilogy. All books in the Music Trilogy can be read individually, or as a continuous saga.
My very first memory of life was the sound of my mother's glorious voice singing to me, most likely a Brahms lullaby, and I'm convinced that is why music always has a delicious way of creeping into my writing and becomes one of the most important elements. I spent twenty years in Europe because of my father, who was with the U.S. Diplomatic Corps, and my mother who was an opera singer. I worked mainly as a simultaneous interpreter and translator as I am a linguist and speak several languages, five of which are fluent. I also worked in the travel/airline and music industries and I have incorporated some of my adventures in TRAVEL TALES, my short travel stories series. Because of my exposure to people of different nations my writing includes many foreign settings and cultures. I am a proud mother of a gallant Marine who served in Iraq, and among the members of our household you will find Louie the cat (aka King Louie), so named because of his clawing love of Louis XV and XVI furniture, and surely thinks he must have been a fearless Marine in one of his former lives. I write about romance, suspense and thrillers in different genres: Contemporary, historical and military. I demand of myself to be accurate in my research and to produce the best work possible. I hope that my books are entertaining, perhaps enlightening and informative. I want my readers to enjoy the time we spend 'together', and that my characters are just as alive as they are to me, even when the last page is turned. In addition to fiction I have published a photo book, 'Around the World in 80 Quotes on Photos', and 'Travel Tales', short adventure stories from different places around the globe. Isabel Allende, Paulo Coelho, Denise Kahn. What do they have in common? They are all amazing writers and storytellers with a touch of mysticism... Denise Kahn's 'Split-Second Lifetime', like 'House of Spirits' and 'the Alchemist', is bound to become a classic. 'Split-Second Lifetime' is an International Bestseller in ten countries. iTunes has ranked 'Peace of Music' #1 in their TOP BOOKS. Thank you for your interest and for reading!
