The story you are about to read is both fact and fiction. The facts were gathered from many sources during my research for this book. You can find their origins in the Bibliography. I have studied the circumstances of Marilyn Monroe's death for a long time and came up with my final conclusion: that we will never know exactly how Marilyn died and if her lost diary was ever found. Only Marilyn, herself, really knows what happened on the morning of August 5, 1962, at 12305 Fifth Helena Drive in Brentwood, California. Contained in this book are many scenarios of what may or may not have happened at the Cal Neva Lodge in Lake Tahoe during those golden years. Marilyn visited there on the weekend of July 27-29, 1962. It was her last visit with much speculation on what happened there that weekend. Later, that same week the Sex Icon was found dead in her bedroom in her home in Bentwood. When reading, one must come to their own conclusions on the different theories and scenarios mentioned within the story. Please separate fact from fiction. Who knows, when finished, you may end up having some other conclusion on your own.

"The Fabulous Gabriel' writes novel about Monroe; book signing is July 18"
By Kristen Dowd
OCEAN CITY- Gabriel always had an interest in Marilyn Monroe."The way she conducted herself,"
"I thought she was way ahead of her time."That interest led Gabriel to write and self publish "Marilyn Monroe: The Lost Diary," a novel detailing the legend of Monroe's personal diary and the possible happenings surrounding the actress's time visiting Cal Neva Lodge in Lake Tahoe. Gabriel, a semi-retired entertainer, who likes to be referred to as "The Fabulous Gabriel," said he met Monroe when he was 11 years old. That, he said, was "how it all started." "I wanted to write about something different. Nobody writes about (Monroe's) diary that was never found," he said.Throughout the years, Gabriel worked as an entertainer around California and Nevada, eventually moving to the Lake Tahoe area for a couple of years. He said "you hear things" in the entertainment business, and he grew curious about Monroe's time at the lodge, where those in the entertainment industry would use underground tunnels to travel from their bungalows to the main showroom and, allegedly, to each other's rooms. At the time, Frank Sinatra owned the lodge. "Marilyn Monroe: The Lost Diary" spans Monroe's time at Cal Neva through her untimely death at the age of 36. The novel is a combination of fact and fiction, written similar to the style of "The Da Vinci Code,"The story follows fictional character John Clark, who is inspired to search for Monroe's lost diary based on a fictional FBI agent's secret files about her death. There are flashbacks incorporated into the tale. "I focus in on the last couple of weeks before her death, and I give reasons why there was a conspiracy," Gabriel "The reader has to come up with their own conclusion." Gabriel said it was difficult to interweave the fact and fiction. He "Lightened up" some aspects, saying his research revealed dark details that he felt where to heavy to include in the book. Since many of the book's central characters are deceased they "can't speak for themselves," Gabriel said he has had great feedback about his novel thus far."Everyone loves it," he said.A book Signing for "Marilyn Monroe: The Lost Diary" will be held on Thursday, July 18, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Sun Rose Words Music, 756 Asbury Ave., Ocean City.

The Discussion includes a question and answer period, information about the book, and additional research Gabriel conducted since the book was published. Gabriel published the book in 2012 and turned a lifelong interest in Marilyn Monroe into a novel interweaving fact and fiction. “Marilyn Monroe The Lost Diary” explores Marilyn Monroe’s final days and the circumstances surrounding her death. He said the book is based on factual information about Monroe’s life and anonymous interviews. The story is carried through the fictional character of John Clarke. Robert Blake, an FBI agent, kept secret files about the death of Marilyn Monroe and a private diary she kept. Before Blake died, he gave Clarke the key to a storage unit containing Monroe’s diary. Gabriel said his interest in Marilyn Monroe began in 1959, when his mother, a Marilyn Monroe buff, took Gabriel to see Monroe at a public appearance. According to Gabriel, Monroe gave him an autographed picture and kissed him on the cheek. “I didn’t wash the side of my face for a week,” Gabriel said. Through the years, Gabriel continued his interest in Marilyn Monroe and did research on his own time. About three years ago on vacation, Gabriel said a family member suggested he write a book about Marilyn Monroe. Gabriel took him up on his suggestion. He spent one year writing the book.
