David Carradine The Eye of My Tornado – Powerful Book by Actress Marina Anderson

Actress Marina Anderson held her first book signing at the Book Soup in West Hollywood, CA, July 23, 2010. About the Late TV Series Kung Fu Legend David Carradine as told by Actress Marina Anderson: David Carradine – a world icon, had a volatile, dark and brilliant personality. His acting career spanned four decades on stage, television and cinema. He became an international sensation as Kwai Chang Caine in the ‘70s hit television series Kung Fu.

Further cementing his icon status, he starred in the classic movies Death Race 2000, Bound for Glory and Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill, which vaulted Carradine back onto the Hollywood A-list. David Carradine died in a Bangkok hotel room, on June 3, 2009, an apparent victim of autoerotic asphyxiation. Amid sensational media speculation, Marina launched her own investigation into the death of her ex-husband. Suicide? Foul play? A sex act gone wrong? Was he alone? Was there a cover-up? Her conclusions are startling. MAYO PR exclusive TV interview at first book signing.

Book Soup says:

Publisher Comments: Accomplished American actor David Carradine was both an enigma and a chameleon. As the eldest son of legendary character actor John Carradine, he appeared in over a hundred feature films and was nominated four times for a Golden Globe Award. On June 4, 2009, Carradine was mysteriously found dead in his hotel room in Bangkok, Thailand. He left many unanswered and disturbing questions behind…
Dividing her time between Toronto, Canada and Los Angeles, Marina Anderson is an established actress with an extensive background in journalism as a professional freelance writer.

AmigoDay is the holiday he and his wife Patsy founded six years ago:  “Just greet anyone anywhere, your way, any month’s first Sunday.”

Myers was second in the 50-meter, tied for first in the 100, won the 200, 400 and  1,500 meter and long jump.

Julian Myers after running 90 miles from San Diego to LA invited 390 of his best friends to his 90th birthday party that ends on the same day as the LA Marathon.

He won the 1,500- meter American championships in 2006, 2007, 2008 and “probably 2009″ which he scored at the Huntsman World Senior Games in St. George, Utah.     Each year he participates in six events in St. George in one day (“for AmigoDay”),  and will again October 6th.

Julian is still active in Hollywood publicity, having graduated from USC in 1939 in Cinema,  and publicized Elvis Presley, John Wayne and other stars at 20th-Fox  beginning in 1949. Julian is a former board member of Entertainment Publicists Professional Society (EPPS) and one of the most trusted and known in celebrity circles and entertainment publicity.

“I look forward to meeting everyone on the red carpet and to a great event in Beverly Hills,” said President Michelle Lovetro, CEO at Soaring High Productions and Film Investments. “Just a few months after our last Event Angel Entertainment Foundation has made big strides towards the ‘Launch Party’.”

The celebrity event will spotlight Carmina Salcido, Sonoma, CA, who 20 years ago survived her father’s murderous rampage that left seven family member dead and was featured on ABC’s 20/20 program. She talks about her life since then in her new book ‘Not Lost Forever’, of which she will autograph at the event.

Angel Entertainment Foundation is an organization devoted to teaching abused and troubled youth from the age of 10 to 18 the art of film making, video and music production. “

“We use these expressive disciplines as a way to heal the soul and provide a positive environment for struggling youth to communicate their feelings,” explained Lovetro . “This is done in a supervised environment, and we do have counselors on staff.”

Lavetro works in conjunction with Soaring High Entertainment Co-Op, so they can provide professional instruction utilizing people that have had years of experience in the industry. They also provide labs in acting, script writing, direction, set design, musical scoring, basically anything to do with production.

Angeles Entertainment Foundation  Goals:

1. Give the youth a sense of identity. Often with abuse kids lose their self esteem, turn to outside negative influences to cope. Through the performing arts they gain it back and feel they have value. Expression through creativity has been proven to be a positive form of therapy.

2. Give the youth a safe place where they can interact and build social skills.

3. To use the performing arts to teach valuable life skills, give them the opportunity to enjoy the feeling of success, the courage and motivation to reach for their dreams.

“It is our goal to train other mental health counselors and therapists in her proven NDT ‘New Decision Therapy’ that she has had great success with in several countries. Breaking the cycle is all about healing traumatic events in peoples past,” said Lovetro.

“We are a compassionate, passionate foundation ready to help damaged children and it is our goal to build awareness and grow year by year as a motivator of other foundations and non profits, not to just meet the children’s enrichment needs but also their mental and emotional needs,” she said.

“Most importantly today’s economy, non profits are struggling to stay in operation and I feel a collaborative effort will keep us all strong so the work may continue,” said Lovetro. “It is my goal at this time to have an all day concert inviting other non profits to participate in creating awareness to programs available to children who want enrichment as well as healing.”
