Real Women who Spy Part. 2

Way before Steven Seagal ever killed anyone on screen with a judo chop, Nancy Wake had been there, done that - in real life.


Real Women who Spy Part. 1

I'm no historian but I believe the first female spy in history was Delilah who was approached by the Philistines to discover the secret of Samson's strength. Delilah was a temptress and was extremely attractive and Samson fell completely in love with her. She used her powers of seduction and manipulation to eventually get Samson to reveal the source of his power which led to his downfall.


Evelyn Salt Vs. Leah Givens

Evelyn Salt who is portrayed by Angelina Jolie in the movie Salt is one badass female spy. Whenever I tell people about The Galadima Conspiracy and the character Leah Givens, the first thing they tend to ask is if she is anything like Evelyn Salt. Well...


Becoming Leah Givens

I must confess, when I started writing The Galadima Conspiracy, I had no intensions of making Leah Givens the lead character (probably why she appears pretty late into the book). Leah was supposed to be the damsel in distress, a fairly trained CIA operative that our hero rescues eventually, but after a rough draft, I fell in love with Leah and she easily became my lead.
