Being in the right place at the wrong time exposes Jade to a tragic attack. The to complete the picture a small boy hands her an envelope from the suicide bomber, a former University of Baghdad student. This story will rock your world.

What does it feel like to see both sides in a conflict? This short story will give you and up close and personal view. Sometimes life is just not fair, its so easy to choose a side and push all fault and blame on the other.

One day, the Iraqi desert will be a garden…again.

Mohammed al-Tikriti, suicide bomber, former University of Bahgdad student

"I want you to give this after the explosion to that pretty lady dressed as a man," he told the boy as he handed him an envelope.

That is how international journalist Jade Snow was led on a life altering journey.

Jade is in Iraq to shoot a documentary about the insurgents. All that changes when she witnesses a suicide bombing in Baghdad.

Jade Snow is an international journalist who is young, witty and beautiful. She also has a hot-blooded Latin cameraman (need I say more). The Green Zone is by far the nicest place in Bagdhdad. But outside the heavily guarded area is a desolate, dangerous, ugly place and it is hard to breathe because of the desert dust. That's where Jade is going to shoot a documentary about the Iraqi insurgency. "So, do you think you need another tip?" Okay, another tip -

In Green Desert we meet investigative journalist, Jade Snow, who is in Iraq during the American occupation. We are immediately dragged into the intense and unstable environment with the devastating explosion that Mohammed, a suicide bomber, has just caused.

When a small boy hands Jade a letter explaining the reasons behind the revenge attack, Jade's world plummets into a heartrending journey to find the truth.

This very clever story gives us the opportunity to gain insights into both sides of the

Very nice story of karma, and how our lives are much more interconnected than we really realize. One's actions have very real consequences in this world whether we may be consciously aware of it or not. So the lesson is to realize the future of humanity depends on our willingness to put aside our differences and unite... or else suffer the horrors of war. Excellent storytelling and character development. Short novella, hoping this author follows up with the next adventure because it's a really ...more

Instead, she listened to her well-meaning parents and started her life in a more traditional way (for her, that is). Born in Russia, she is a world traveler, linguist, financial consultant, Feng Shui Master, shaman, futurist, and ...more
