A nurse, humanitarian aid worker, and writer, Roberta Gately has served in 3rd world war zones ranging from Africa to Afghanistan. She has written on the subject of refugees for the Journal of Emergency Nursing and the BBC World News Online. Her first novel "Lipstick in Afghanistan" will be released in November by Simon and Schuster.
Any writer with a great story - Harper Lee, D.H. Lawrence, and Marge Piercy, and lately it’s Ann Patchett, Elizabeth George and Phillipa Gregory.
Reading - I just finished “The Help” by Katherine Stockett and “Those Who Save Us” by Jenna Blum – both were spellbinding stories.
