Dixiane Hallaj

The author, Dixiane Hallaj,spent eleven years in the Middle East, six of them in Occupied Palestine, as part of her husband’s extended family, listening as they shared much of the refugee experience with her.  Recently she visited refugee camps on the West Bank where she listened to the stories of many of the women.  These stories formed the basis of her award-winning doctoral dissertation Caught by Culture and Conflict.

 She currently lives with her husband of 49 years in rural Virginia.  They enjoy the company of the deer and wild turkeys.  Although the cat named "Dog" is no longer with them, his dish remains nailed to the deck railing to keep it out of reach of the oppossum who lives under the deck.  Luckily, the skunk is only an occasional passerby.
