Books, Blogs and Screenplays!

I love to write: memoirs, essays, magazine articles, short stories, children’s stories, solo performance pieces, stage plays, screenplays, and BLOGS — scroll down for my most up-to-date post.  My first memoir, TEA IN TRIPOLI, tells of my own year of living dangerously in Libya (see below). I’m already working on my second, DINNER IN DUBAI.

Tea in Tripoli

Broken by divorce, debt, and workplace sexual harassment, 26-year-old Bernadette Nason is hanging by a thread. With almost no travel experience, she grabs the first available overseas job and, two months later, she’s in Libya. Inspired by her adventures during Gaddafi’s regime, c. 1984-85, Tea in Tripoli follows Nason’s attempts to escape her past on an unusual, often perilous, journey of self-discovery. It’ll resonate with anyone who has ever run away from problems instead of taking care of business. Move over, Bridget Jones, there’s a new, real-life idiot in town.

“Drenched in the aftermath of colonialism, Tea in Tripoli is a coming of age tale like no other. Nason is a brave and witty travel companion who leaves you looking forward to the next trip.” — Donna M. Johnson, Author of Holy Ghost Girl: A Memoir

Official release August 21, 2017, but pre-publication copies available here for $17.95 + tax + shipping (sent First Class within 24 hours of order). For international orders, please contact Bernadette directly at
