Poetry & Novel Showcase Innovative Reinterpretations of Science & Society

Zeena Nackerdien, a scientist turned novelist, synthesized relationships, headlines, mythology, history, science, religion, and sports, through her mental prism in two books: Mist over Peace (genre: poetry) and The Heroine Next Door (genre: fiction).

According to the Institute for Economics and Peace, only 11 countries are not actively involved in one conflict or another. If the world seems less peaceful than several decades ago, it is worth examining some of the causes and possible solutions through the filters of rationality and human emotions. When vitriol and violence are transformed to mutual understanding and clear-eyed examination of challenges in obtaining a healthier and happier society, humanity may progress towards a sustained peace. Many stories need to be
integrated to achieve this goal and the author of the two books, Mist over Peace and The Heroine Next Door, uses mostly narrative verses and a realistic post 9/11 saga about a middle-aged Muslim woman contributing to HIV/AIDS treatment solutions in South Africa to add her perspectives to ways ordinary people can help one another.

Adults of all nationalities are invited to examine and contemplate the impact of war, science, technology, and religion on individual and societal health described in both books.

Mist over Peace is available as an e-book (http://www.amazon.com/Mist-Over-Peace-Zeena-Nackerdien-ebook/dp/B00V68CC9C/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1429565475&sr=8-2&keywords=Zeena+Nackerdien) and The Heroine Next Door is available in all formats (http://www.amazon.com/Heroine-Next-Door-Zeena-Nackerdien/dp/1941736246/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1429566871&sr=8-1&keywords=Zeena+Nackerdien) through Amazon and other retailers.
