Peace Amidst Conflict
“I found this fictional story to have the depth to make anyone relate to the facts on one of the great tragedies in U.S. history. Very convincing and devastating to America’s image as the beacon of democracy.”
Major General Antonio Taguba,
the Army general
whose report on hisinvestigation into the
Abu Ghraib prison abuse created worldwide outcry.
Peace Amidst Conflict is an engaging novel, as it parallels the tragedy of 9/11 with a romantic and relatable story of love and perseverance in the face of adversity . . . [This] book is an impassioned cry for change in both personal relationships and world affairs told through the story of two interesting main characters.”

“Thank you for . . . sharing the excerpts from your forthcoming book. It was nice to see you in Nevada. My family and I have been touched by the outpouring of support we have received since my husband announced his candidacy for President of the United States.
The cards, messages and calls Barack and I have received from across the country reaffirm our belief that America is ready to put the era of bitter partisanship and the politics of division behind us, and that 2008 can be a watershed election for a new politics of principled, passionate, and civil debate about the future course of our country. I appreciate your willingness to join us in reaching across party lines to move our country forward.

Thank you so much for your note and kind words of support. . . .I wish you well on your latest adventure with this book... you've already contributed so much and you obviously still have much to give. The book sounds very interesting - so good luck with it all. Our country is in a perilous time and we all need to educate ourselves and make sure it stays a government of the people.

Thank you for your letter, the excerpts from your new book and asking for my endorsement. I appreciate the request and read with interest your references to the Iraq Study Group. The facts are fine; however I prefer not to endorse fiction.
I send my best wishes for success with your book and, again, thank you for thinking of me.
