"I'll try to find Margaret . . . she's definitely the missing link" - Hunter S. Thompson, August 12, 1971

Background Information

"Margaret's life is, as always, more amazing than any book. If I didn't know Margaret, I wouldn't believe her incredible life story" - Frank Despriet, author of  Communication Psychology


About Margaret

The author of eight books in the Love in Transition: Voyage of Ulysses - Letters to Penelope nonfiction series, including Toward a Philosophy of Perception, Harrell copy edited Hunter Thompson's first book, Hell's Angels, at Random House. HST acknowledged her in Gonzo Letters 2. She is also an editor, cloud photographer, and mentor to people trying to maximize their potential.

The new memoir Keep This Quiet! My Relationship with Hunter S. Thompson, Milton Klonsky, and Jan Mensaert - now available on Amazon and B & N at 28% discount and on Kindle, Nook, and iPad - brings alive the cutting-edge moment of Hunter Thompson’s career, when it took off. Harrell, who was his copy editor on Hells Angel's, rescued his letters to her from the dustbin of history. Through them she recounts a missing chapter in his life that - incredibly - up till now is off the radar screen. Martin Flynn, the owner of calls it "A Feast for the Gonzo Soul . . . It has been a while since I have learned new stuff about Hunter Thompson. I feel refreshed. It was a pleasure to read. " Another special features is priceless reminiscences of some of Hunter's oldest friends: William Kennedy, David Pierce, Rosalie Sorrels, and editor Jim Silberman - covered in no other account. Featured in addition are "poete maudit" Jan Mensaert and Greenwich Village "poet genius" Milton Klonsky.

 These three men - all outsider writer - have been major influences in teaching me live Presence and the insistence on authenticity - taking "the ride" of life,no matter where and at what intensity it leads.

After holding onto Hunter's letters for decades, with his suicide, I decided to bring them out. William McKeen, author of the acclaimed biography Outlaw Journalist, recommends Keep This Quiet! and adds, " Hunter often said [Margaret] was the best editor he ever worked with and they were close friends." "It is a moving read and much recommended to any literary studies ormemoir collection," writes the Midwest Book Review.

Birth Place
Raleigh, NC USA

I was three times a Fellow at MacDowell Colony for writer, artists, etc. I am also an honorary member of a society to preserve and study a historic cave in Romania. For a year I was an honorary "Author in Residence" (remotely) at a university in Romania. I have been several years in the Marquis Who's Who in the World and (presently) am in Marquis Who's Who in Modern American Art.I've had my cloud photography on display in galleries internationally and was in a Leipzig, Germany-published book of 100 Fine Art Photographers in 2011.

Additional Information

I have a mini-dachshund, love the images in clouds (see my website, keep up a book website, And am most grateful for the response to Keep This Quiet! However, I would love more sales. And with the 28% discount it is an ideal gift for Christmas. Besides its historical position in documenting an unknown highly significant period in Hunter's life - in part in his own words - the book has also been reviewed under the title "The Art of Complicated Relationships." I am teaching a meet-up on that topic. I also teach "light body" courses, based in guided meditations and the ground-breaking work of Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer.
