Editorial Reviews

Review

--The thing I love about Munier's stories is the attention to detail (specifically, the accurate and realistic dialogue, authentic to the time, mentions of places and events...storytelling like this couldn't be more real.) Maybe Diane Munier is a time traveler.
--The writer knows just how to put heart and drama in her story so you can't wait to turn the next page.
-- Love the style. Love the dialogue. I love the characters and their story. I feel taken back in time. LOVE!
-- Get ready for a fast paced story with characters you will fall in love with. You can picture Jules and Isbe in the post war setting that is described in colorful detail. Their passionate romance and adventures will captivate the reader. Everyone definitely check this out.
 
 
 

From the Author

My father is my inspiration. His era. The way love was presented in the culture and the way real people took those notions into reality. Men were distant and masculine, worried about wearing the pants, and women were the boundary makers and basically apologetic. But love was supposed to be the answer and men were knocked out by the right woman. Woman were forever fulfilled by his attention. Clothing was amazing and boldly declared what you were and who you were. Cuffed pant, wingtips, crisp white shirts, full skirts, shirt-waists, straight skirts, long hair swinging in a ponytail, high heels.
Veterans came home, and having defeated two evil regimes, the sky was the limit. Babies were booming and the frozen economic wheels were starting to turn.
I remember the feel of it, the music, the movies, magazines. I remember how crazy my mother was about my father and I remember mostly, my father's raging PTSD that he would have hotly denied and not known what to call. A real man sucked it up. Courage came in achievement, the ability to take care of your family. What you had to do to keep the bubble level was up to you. Just don't get caught.
That's what inspired me. Walking that line the way these men did, upon re-entry. Falling in love. the G. I. Bill. Signing up for the American dream. That's what I hoped to capture in this story, Running With Monkeys. You'll have to tell me if I achieved it.
