stopsignwolfYears ago I was failing miserably working as a wholesale rep for a carpet mill in S. California covering a territory called the “Kite”. Back then the “Kite” (Pomona and east into the high desert) was, shall we say, the “less sophisticated” part of the S. California market. That has all changed; now it is fully developed and very upscale.


Marilyn Barnewall helped MICR Prime get going way back when it was just a dream. Her world view, banking knowledge and hours of personal counseling have kept us focused. Thank you, my friend.

neckblackswanflightblackswanFair warning – you won’t be able to put these books down. And, you will be amazed at how many of the fictionalized events in When the Swan’s Neck Breaks, published in 2008, still pop up as headline stories on the nightly news. The sequel, Flight of the Black Swan, continues the spellbinding saga of Meredith and Alex who, together with former covert Intelligence operative William Leonard and retired CIA agent Jake McGregor, set about implementing an extremely dangerous counter-plot to thwart enemies, both foreign and domestic, hell-bent on bringing America to her financial knees. 

Marilyn MacGruder Barnewall is a student of the human condition, wielding the written craft to enrapture the mind, much like an artist wields a brush. Until recently, she wrote non-fiction exclusively for the banking industry. She has consulted for and given speeches to bankers around the world. Who better to write a book about America's central banking system, fiat currency, fractional-reserve banking -- and, espionage?
