In the Name of Allah
Most Gracious-Most Merciful
Judy Nelson Eldawy
Judy, a Muslim Southern Belle, currently spends the school year in Egypt and summers in the US. She worked many years as an RN in the fields of psych/mental health, infectious disease and home health. Now, she does the occasional freelance editing job and tutors in English, science et al. for her daughter and a hoard of assorted nieces, nephews and neighbors. Hobbies include reading everything, writing, surfing the Net, cooking, people watching and languages. She speaks some Spanish, an understandable if not always grammatical Arabic and is working hard on improving her written Arabic and acquiring French. Her first novel is pending, though poetry is her preferred voice.
