Eliza McCullen has survived a coup in Honduras, an attempted Al Qaida attack in Uganda, an army/paramilitary shootout in Malawi, earthquakes, dengue fever and malaria. For nearly a quarter of a century, she lived and travelled throughout many parts of Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America and Asia. Her career path was as varied as her geographical wanderings, ranging from social scientist to business manager to editor of the U.S. Embassy newsletter.
Two interests have sustained her throughout her many travels: textile arts and writing fiction. She began by co-authoring middle grade mysteries with her niece and has now embarked on adult fiction. Her one requirement when a writing book is that it has a happily-ever-after ending.
Eliza is enjoying life as an empty-nester in Sedona Arizona where she and her husband of thirty-two years have retired amid the majestic red rocks. She has two adult children who share their father’s passion for globetrotting. As of this writing, they are launching international careers in finance and public health.

A Land Ruled by Silence
by Eliza McCullen
We arrived in the country of Malawi just in time to witness its transition from a thirty-year-old oppressive dictatorship to multiparty democracy. My husband had accepted a position with the US Agency for International Development and I became the trailing spouse. Here, in the quietest of countries in the world, I too would transition to a new and very foreign life style.
