Peace, Change, and Development for Afghan Women

Four decades of conflict and the Taliban’s regressive, conservative attitudes have had a dramatic impact on Afghan women’s rights. This has affected their access to education, healthcare, and adequate income. Displaced, widowed, and marginalised, Afghan women were locked out of the workforce under the Taliban rule. With no means to support themselves or their families, many faced abject poverty. With the fall of the Taliban in 2001, Afghanistan inherited an economy with few jobs to support its

Afghanistan: Bringing Sameer home from the streets

On a busy Kabul street traffic moves steadily with morning commuters. None slow or glance at the dirty sugar cane sack lying on its side in the middle of the median strip. Two street dogs lay guard at the foot of the sack. Next to them, cold ashes of a makeshift fire flutter in the breeze. At the approach of two strangers, the dogs bare their teeth and pulling flat their ears, let out a rumbling growl deep within their chest. Inside the sack is eight year old Sameer. Orphaned at five, Sameer’s

A Tapestry of Truth and Imagination

I’m often asked to describe my genre. My answer? I don’t really know. As a reader, I love a variety of books from all genres.

The Russian Tapestry is a tale of love and turmoil based o

Book Review: Coal Creek

4.5 stars In step with the digital revolution, the publishing industry has burgeoned with new writers, new genres and new stories. Never before has there been such an output of new writing, whether it be on line or in hard copy. So how does an author make their work stand out from the crowded marketplace? It seems to me that some authors jump on board emerging trends, dare I say gimmicks, to set their work apart from the others. A popular trend I have noticed recently is an increased frequenc

Book Review: Wonders of a Godless World

This gets five stars simply as an astonishing feat of the imagination! Imagine writing a book where the two main characters are nameless: the girl is an inmate of an insane asylum; the man is in a coma throughout; they are able to 'communicate' purely through thoughts and feelings; 'he' may even be immortal. McGahan manages all this with no apparent difficulty whatsoever; again he prose is lucid and clear. One feels no problem is following the most fantastic of events. He also manages to This g
