"By God, Brooke Jones is a Hell of a writer!" -- Ben Fong-Torres/former EDITOR of ROLLING STONE Magazine

If you think a CONVERSATION WITH GOD could not possibly be FUNNY, you're in for a very BIG surprise!

Brooke Jones, Breast Cancer Warrior, Political Satirist, and former San Francisco and Los Angeles Radio Personality died, but her death was short-lived. Eight minutes passed on Earth while she was busy being dead, but she wasn't on Earth, she was at Heaven's Front Door, interviewing God!

"What is the meaning of life?" "What religion is God?" "Is God male or female?" Brooke asked every question she could think of, and God provided the answers. The first thing she learned was that God has a sense of humor! (of course God has a sense of humor -- have you ever seen a Platypus?)

Was she returned to the Land Of The Living because of the startling final question she asked? Did all that she experienced really happen, or was it just the hallucination of her dying brain? She didn't know, until she was given proof - absolute proof - proof she could not possibly deny!

"WHY ARE THERE MONKEYS? (and other questions for God)" is the absolutely TRUE, deeply INSPIRATIONAL, laugh-out-loud FUNNY story of one woman's Near-Death Question and Answer Session with God. (and there is undeniable proof that it really did happen!)





"By God, Brooke Jones is a hell of a writer!" Ben Fong-Torres -- former Editor of ROLLING STONE Magazine

"Smart, funny and profoundly spiritual -- a deeply-moving experience that skeptics and believers alike can embrace. I loved it!" Howard Rosenberg - Pulitzer Prize winning former Los Angeles Times columnist and author.

"Delightful, insightful, spiritual and startlingly funny! It left me, an atheist, more of a believer than I was before!" Ray Richmond -- former columnist with The Hollywood Reporter, Daily Variety, Orange County Register, LA Herald Examiner.
