Goddess to Goddess tells the radiant tales of women who were bold enough to follow their inner calling to dig deep within and come out shining brightly. Zetta Rose, a recipient of the prestigious Presidential Points of Light Award, goes deep into the hearts of twenty-four women, searching with them for wisdom and truth to share with their sister Goddesses. The women you will meet in the book are everyday Goddesses like you who paused, listened and heard the vibration, the vibration of sister Goddesses everywhere-past present and future-whispering in their ear, "You can do this; we are with you, be brave, tune into the magic, give honor to the Divine Feminine." Some of the Goddesses who share their stories are internationally known in their field, including new age musical star Wah!, Nina Rao, who performed on the Grammy Awards, acclaimed Pueblo pottery maker Nancy Youngblood, and "Yogawoman" film maker Saraswati Clere. All twenty-four of the Goddesses are remarkable in their own way. As we journey with them, we see that the same magical thread which connects them connects all women, and we are reminded of an important truth which is too easy to forget in our present times: all women are Goddesses. The women in this book comprise a tapestry of experiences-times of joy, times of sadness, times of courage, and of doubt. Times when everything came easy and times that were overwhelmingly difficult. The women come from an array of spiritual traditions, and from many varied paths. Among them are teachers, healers, musicians, farmers, artists, writers, mothers, and daughters. They are young, and they are elders. The simple truth which joins them is that in their journeys they have all touched that place inside which connects us all: We are Divine, Light filled beings. We are Goddesses! Soft and strong, luminous, amazing, Grace filled beings.

New York Times Bestseller: The definitive biography based on over six hundred interviews with people who knew Marilyn Monroe both professionally and intimately. Marilyn Monroe, born in obscurity and deprivation, became an actress and legend of the twentieth century, romantically linked to famous men from Joe DiMaggio to Arthur Miller to John F. Kennedy. But her tragic death at a young age, under suspicious circumstances, left behind a mystery that remains unsolved to this day. Anthony Summers interviewed more than six hundred people, laying bare the truths—sometimes funny, often sad—about this brilliant, troubled woman. The first to gain access to the files of Monroe’s last psychiatrist, Summers uses the documents to explain her tangled psyche and her dangerous addiction to medications. He establishes, after years of mere rumor, that President Kennedy and his brother Robert were both intimately involved with Monroe in life—and in covering up the circumstances of her death. Written by a Pulitzer Prize nominee who has authored works on JFK, J. Edgar Hoover, and the 9/11 attacks, this investigation of an iconic star’s brief life and early death is “remarkable. . . . The ghost of Marilyn Monroe cries out in these pages” (The New York Times).
100-page full color hardcover book featuring over 45 full-page artworks and filled with inspirational quotes and affirmations.

In Goddess more than 30 Martha Graham dancers recall the complex experience of studying, working and performing with this small giant of a woman. They represent all the decades of the Graham era, from the twenties into the nineties, and their commentary illuminates the creation and performance of such now classic Graham works as Heretic, Primitive Mysteries, Letter to the World, Deaths and Entrances, Herodiade, Appalachian Spring, Dark Meadow, Cave of the Heart, Night Journey, Diversion of Angels and Clytemnestra. As the artists relive their time with Graham, their words and voices sound with stunning authenticity, while the incidents and the emotions they remember range from moments of exaltation and exhilaration to those of humiliation and fury. Throughout this remarkable oral history, legendary dancers show us Martha Graham as she has never been seen before - at work and in love, giving and demanding, inspiring and imperious, and as a presence that will always be with them.
Goddess X begins in the heart and mind of Keith Martin, a twenty-six year old social worker who is slightly neurotic and overly nostalgic for the 1970s. He reluctantly trudges through his existence, resenting the present time and mourning the loss of his utopian childhood spent with Dawn; the kind and beautiful next-door neighbor who raised and nurtured him while his parents nurtured their careers. His banal reality shatters forever when he and his co-workers attend the grand opening of a ghoulish new bar called No Escape. Keith is shocked when he witnesses the owner of the bar, Dawn's conniving and controlling husband David, passionately kissing another woman. Realizing that he must warn Dawn, Keith decides to contact her despite the pain it will cause him to face his lost love, a woman twenty years his senior, a woman who was like a mother to him. Overcoming his fear, Keith makes a trip to his old neighborhood and pays a visit to Dawn, who welcomes him with tears and hugs. They quickly discover that their bond is as strong as ever, but that they must also face an awkward and intense physical attraction. Infused with new hope, they vow to never lose each other again. Keith's newfound bliss is short-lived as he discovers the dark secrets of the past. His entire being is shaken when he learns that Dawn, the "Goddess" of his childhood, had been verbally and physically abused by David throughout their entire marriage. He also learns that Dawn's house, his childhood sanctuary, is being plagued by paranormal phenomena, which began in 1974 when David and his mistress, Rosa, tried to invoke an evil spirit into the body of a marionette during a party. Enraged by this information, Keith begins an investigation that leads from the past to a future where David and Rosa, a self-proclaimed sorceress, are planning a bizarre and demonic demise for Dawn that's twenty-four years in the making.

Goddess is the book that Madonna and her entourage did not want published. Long before the star could instruct her family and friends not to talk to the author, Barbara Victor spent more than eighteen months in Michigan, the United Kingdom, France, Italy, California, New York, and Florida, interviewing Madonna's father and stepmother, her grandmother and other family members, as well as friends, neighbors, business associates, and former lovers and colleagues, some of whom knew the Ciccone family from the time Madonna was a young child, many of whom have never before spoken either on or off the record. In this extraordinary biography, Barbara Victor taps into previously unexplored sources to unmask the privet person behind the public image. As a result of her extensive research, Victor casts new light on every aspect of Madonna's career and private life -- from her childhood in Michigan to her early years in New York, from meteoric ascent to stardom to her most recent incarnation as an English wife and mother. After almost two decades, since she first appeared in the international music scene, Madonna continues to fascinate and challenge both her fans and her detractors. With her remarkable ability to reinvent herself -- from diva to provocateur, from artist to mogul -- she continues to command more attention and arouse more controversy than any other public figure of our time. Alternately criticized and revered, Madonna consistently and dramatically sets style, social, sexual, and musical trends and yet she remains an enigma to her public, keeping her most intimate identity hidden from all but her closest friends. Goddess offers explosive new revelations about Madonna's life, her career, and the fact or fantasy of her lesbian and heterosexual relationships. Barbara Victor has written the definitive biography about a woman who gives new meaning to the term superstar.
