My new fiction book will also be published in Spring 2013, and I am looking forward to my readers' response. Solar Noon is a Dexter-style novel about two New Mexico women who take out evil. Coming in June, 2013.
Anay's Will to Learn: Woman's Education in the Shadow of the Maquiladora, is the story of Anay, a woman I met in Ciudad Juarez. She had come to the city to work in the big factories (maquiladoras), and I hired her to help me navigate the large city as I conducted research in the schools. Soon, I realized that her personal struggle through poverty, violence, and even cancer was a story of strength and determination that had to be told. Our reviewers say it is spell-binding.
