Life Outside the Box


An excerpt from Chapter Three- Life Outside The Box by Marilyn Wilson.
“…A few acting jobs began to roll in. One movie role he particularly enjoyed was playing the part of a vampire. ‘I love parts that are so far away from who I am.’ He had to reach deep inside to create the character. The scene played out on the Santa Monica Beach at night. First, the vampire danced with the actress. Then he bit her on the neck causing blood to flow. The intensity he brought to the performance ended up frightening the actress as well as the crew. They thought he would actually do it.” ~

“Ness is a truly force of nature. He is the perfect example of the Law of Attraction. He has always believed he could achieve whatever goals he set – and he fully believes you can too. Add in the fact his parfum is named Laila in honour of his mother, his clients are like family to him and the extensive charity work he makes time for, and the die was cast. He HAD to be in my first book” ~ an excerpt from Life Outside The Box by Marilyn Wilson.

“Everyone has a story to tell – it’s just a matter of asking the right questions.” – Marilyn R. Wilson
