I want to welcome Annabel Hertz to Books R Us. Annabel is the author of Seeing Green and is touring the blogosphere with JKS Communications. Thanks for stopping by.
About the Book:
With clever social commentary and her own experience in the political realm, author Annabel Hertz will get readers “Seeing Green” in no time.
Her new book “Seeing Green” (April 15, 2014) steps into the world of cutthroat politics and environmental policy as seen through the eyes of a young multicultural woman whose personal life seems to parallel her professional life as an activist on the front lines of Washington D.C. in the ’90s. Never afraid to articulate her personal convictions, Hertz’s modern day heroine is strong and profound, yet humorous and relatable.
“Seeing Green” is Hertz’s first endeavor in historical fiction, reviewed on The Huffington Post as “timely, energetic and witty.”
Much like the protagonist she introduces in “Seeing Green,” Hertz has delved into the world of politics with organizations involved in international relations and sustainable development. More recently, she served as a policy consultant, adjunct professor at the Geneva School of Diplomacy and International Relations and Global Governance Fellow at the World Economic Forum.
About the Author:
“Seeing Green” is Hertz’s debut novel. She holds master’s degrees from Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government and San Francisco State University, as well as a bachelor’s degree from the University of California where she studied politics. Hertz is currently pursuing a doctorate in international relations at American University in Washington D.C.

I really enjoyed Annabel's first book. It was very informative, and enlightened me on the inner workings of NGOS in Washington DC. I found the novel humorous,and entertaining. It was well written and was easy to read. I finished the book rather quickly and I connected with the main character Arcani. She had a personality that was strong willed and she maintained her principles even after some hardships. I recommend the to anyone who wants to learn a little bit about politics and how it can affect everything.
