In the next few months I’ll be giving you a glimpse of the inner workings of my journey to and through the publication of my first book, DYING IN DUBAI, a memoir of marriage, mourning, and the Middle East. This is, to say the least, an exciting time for me, and one of deep satisfaction. I still can’t quite believe that I’m here, anticipating the launch of a book. It feels like both a birth and a re-birth. More on that later…For now I’ll simply say that there is nothing better than achieving a major goal, especially when the road has been long, rutted, and at times, blocked. In retrospect—sometimes the only clear view—what looked like detours actually provided the impetus to make the dream manifest. Stay tuned for details of those detours/opportunities. I can’t wait to share them with you and to hear your own. Meanwhile, keep reading, writing, and following your passions!
My very best,
