Greetings from Destin, Florida
Lights wound around the trunks of Palm trees revealed remnants of Christmas. The sea of the Gulf sent a pleasant warm wind that told me to take off my Iowa winter coat. The next day, as I walked the Bay side of the Gulf, the seagulls, herons and loons welcomed me back. But the Pelican was much too busy diving for fish for breakfast.
Now sitting comfortably on the balcony overlooking the Bay, life is less with me and the Bay’s quiet beauty never ceases to calm my soul.
My book manuscript begs to be worked on from the table, the laptop beckons, the printer beeps, the baggie full of paper clips, tape, scissors and staples is waiting for life, but the Bay’s beckoning and the Gulf’s call are stronger.
Two new reviews of my books have been written. First, on Female Genital Mutilation:
"... a well-researched reference book, is important reading for individuals who are providing birth care to women from the countries in which FGM is practiced. ... One of the most interesting chapters includes an interview with Maasai in Tanzania regarding FGM ..."
Midwifery Today, p. 62 and 69, Winter 2006.
Secondly, on Female Suicide Bombers:
"A scholarly collective profile , January 5, 2007
Reviewer: Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)
" ... a scholarly collective profile of women recruited to deliberately and knowingly sacrifice their lives in violent acts. ... Female Suicide Bombers recognizes that suicide bombers in general do not operate as individuals, ... Most importantly, Female Suicide Bombers meticulously deconstructs numerous Western myths and societal biases that impede understanding of the true nature of these acts of war ... A heavily researched, professional, and up-to-date treatment of a singularly serious topic."
