Character Study Arabella Anderson

Arabella Anderson was born in Estelí, Nicaragua. 

Estelí was the scene of heavy fighting in the civil war against the Somoza government from 1978 to 1979. The city was heavily air-bombed by the regime’s National Guard, which reduced many of the city’s buildings to rubble. The human casualties were around 15,000; many of them were youths massacred on suspicion of being part of the insurrection.  Excerpt from Wikipedia

She was a lot like some of today’s young female immigrants caught between two worlds.

In Arabella’s case, she was caught between a man (Randall Crawford) she was obligated to for bringing her to the United States and giving her a new prosperous life and the man (Jared Anderson) she loved.

And even after she married Jared, Randall refused to let her go.  He initiated an affair by threatening to tell Jared that she was an illegal immigrant.  So, when she found herself pregnant, not knowing which of the two men had fathered her child, she was at a lost on how to resolve the situation.

Powers Boothe aka Noah Daniels

twenty-four-booth91

This morning I received some very bad news, Powers Boothe has died.

As many of you know, Powers Boothe figured centrally in my new ebook, ’24 – The Hunt For Red November,’ as Noah Daniels a role he made famous on the TV series 24.

I am so grateful that he allowed me in write him into the book.  I had dreams of seeing him come back to this role.  And I dearly regret that he did not get to read the final pages of the book.

Good bye Mr. Boothe and thank you so very much.  You were an inspiration for me.

Sincerely,

Eliza D. Ankum asa elizabooks

A Woman’s Voice: Book Of Poems

51xqmsyirtl

A Woman’s Voice is a small book of poems that echo my inner feelings about my southern upbringing, living in the north, love, and growing older.

Excerpt from ‘A Woman’s Voice: Book Of Poems

My Mother’s Vegetable Garden

32

My mother’s vegetable garden grew in gray dry dirt
Pole beans twisted themselves around gnarled brown sticks
Stuck in that same gray dirt
Rows and rows of bushy headed collard greens
That were our relief from biscuits and beans
Pole beans, collard greens
Tomatoes ripe and juicy
Okra spiny and straight
I watched her from the window of the house
Skirt tied in knots at her knees
Bent over she worked pruning and weeding

Later, harvest time, I followed behind her
With basket in hand
As she pulled our very existence
From that gray dry dirt

Why goats in a tree? Listen.

Because most of the time women feel like they’re up a tree screaming for help. I Know I did.  And if you’re not one of these women, a bunch of goats up a tree is just funny.

A Tiny Kitten with a Big Mouth

Office Slager shooting Walter Scott

Back in 2005, when I still believed in justice, fairness, and the American Way, I made a speech in front of the Village of Maywood’s City Council during one of their Tuesday night meetings. In the meeting, I remarked that if they didn’t put a stop to the stalkers public humiliation of me that it would come back on them by way of their children. They looked at me as though I were some insane idiot who had wandered in off the street.

But what I meant by that was, if you let one group of people, The Stalkers, get away with doing and saying whatever they want in your streets, others, including your children, will learn to do the same. And they did.

The same holds true with the Zimmerman case. The not Guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman case gave a clear signal…
