Battlegrounds: The Fight to Defend the Free World by H.R. McMaster

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Strategic narcissism is the phrase McMaster uses to describe the US foreign policy in the world. Whether you agree with his assessment or not he does give an often tedious but very well researched background on the role of foreign policy over several presidential administrations not just the current one. It is well worth reading to get a better idea of the philosophies and views of some of the hotspots in the world and how the US could relate better.

About Me

Welcome to my first blog post. I am an author and retired librarian; Midwest born and raised. I always wanted to be a writer and throughout my life I have written stories but was never brave enough to try publish them.

After I retired I had an idea to create adult story bags for librarians to use for outreach at senior centers. Realizing that I didn’t have the money to do something like this I decided to write a book about older adults along with program outlines that librarians could use. Along with my son’s inspiration that he had to step outside of his comfort zone in college I realized that it was time for me to step outside my comfort zone.

After two years my book On the Go with Senior Services: library programs for anyplace and anytime will be published in March 2020.

My hope is to continue writing and perhaps be published again. I tend to write nonfiction but am open to fiction. I am seeking stories about how retirees managed the transition of retirement. I am also seeking stories about how people learned to cook.

I would love to hear from other writers. Thank you for looking at my blog.
