Desiree Finkbeiner


Desiree Finkbeiner attained a bachelor's degree in Graphic Design from Missouri Southern State University (2006) with a heavy background in business, marketing, music and fine art-- She was heavily involved in campus affairs and served actively in several committees focusing on campus entertainment and events.

She performed with musical acts/bands in rock and electronic genres, released seven studio albums, performed in 11 states and has written hundreds of songs. Her band, Carbon Star, was a finalist for VH1's "Bands on the Run" reality TV show in 2000. Then she performed with Pointy Teeth until finally leaving the music industry for the quiet life.

She had a scholarship for acting in college though she was not a theater major. Although she no longer performs or focuses on musical/performing arts, she has chosen to shift her talents to other areas that are more conducive to raising a family.

Continuing education is a constant adventure for Desiree with topics of interest ranging from civil and corporate law, history, political conspiracy, homeopathic medicine and spiritual healing. She prefers to read non-fiction, especially on topics that educate and broaden her perspectives on controversial issues.

With thousands of completed art works in her archives, most of which appear in private collections worldwide, Desiree hopes to focus more on publishing, marketing and licensing her work so she can leave a legacy behind.

A Note From Desiree Finkbeiner


Note to reviewers:

I have attached the most recent edit PDF sent to my editor with a few corrections that will be made before the print edition comes out next month (so you can ignore my editing notes, there are a few here and there). I also have a mobi, if you prefer, but mobi file doesn't contain my corrections. Until I get a corrected mobi from my publisher, I only have the version that contains about a dozen typos.

Please note: Ethos does NOT contain any graphic sexual content, so if you like it HOT, this book may bore you to tears. It is meant to be a SWEET romance and promotes a certain degree of moral virtues (the passion here is mild enough for teen readers but sincere enough to touch older readers who enjoy clean romance). It focuses on true love, rather than lustful adventures.

Within only 5 weeks of release, this book has been a best seller on Amazon USA and UK, with over 20,000 copies downloaded since it's release on March 28, 2012, and has been as high as #4 in Romance. Has been in the top 10 bestsellers in three genres on Amazon Kindle Paid UK, and top 100 in Amazon Kindle Paid USA.

Enjoy :)
