A not-so-nice Jewish girl, expelled from Yale Drama during the Vietnam protests, abandons her acting dream to follow the man she loves to an off-the-grid commune.

Honest, rebellious, sensual, politically astute, she’s invited us into history to live and love through her. We dare not pass up the opportunity because being Carol is in itself an adventure.” — BARBARA BOTTNER, New York Times bestselling author

Tenth Anniversary Edition of NATIONAL SECURITY MOM



The original NATIONAL SECURITY MOM ( ISBN: 9781948018609, Oct. 2008) by 30-year active-CIA officer Gina Bennett compared parenting principles to keeping our nation secure: teaching children to tell the truth, ignore bullies, choose friends wisely, clean up, etc.

AMERICA NEEDS A TIME-OUT ( ISBN: 9781948018593, Oct. 2019) extends Bennett’s analogy to the five steps of a parenting “time-out” to reflect on, and correct, the direction of our democracy. Includes letters from young women at girlsecurity.com, with a foreword by Nobel Prize Winner Jody Williams.

Gina Bennett is a member of the CIA’s Senior Analytic Service, and long-standing member of the Senior Analytic Service currently on assignment as the Senior Counterterorrism Advisor in the Directorate of Strategic Operational Planning in the National Counterterrorism Center. She is a seasoned counterterrorism specialist who authored the 1993 report that warned of the growing danger of Osama Bin Laden and the extremist movement he was fomenting.

Gina was featured in the Showtime documentary, Spymasters, the HBO documentary, Manhunt, and in the PBS documentary, Makers: Women Who Make America in their episode on women in war for her role as a trailblazing woman in the counterterrorism field. She has been featured in the cover story of Newsweek’s issue on “Women of the CIA” in 2016 and in a previous Newsweek article for her role as a female pioneer in the targeting; and in a variety of media.

Gina teaches Ethics in Intelligence as an adjunct faculty member at Georgetown University in the Security Studies Program of the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service and at the George Washington University in the International Policy and Practice program at the Elliot School of International Affairs. She is also a founding board member of Girl Security, an educational program to familiarize elementary-to-high school girls in national and international security issues. She is a single mom of five children.

30th Anniversary

A little Jewish girl from Long Island, Leslie Joy Wunderman, made it against the odds, sold over 75 million records, worked with Michael Jackson, Elton John, and Whitney Houston, and more, and is now on her 30th-Anniversary Tour — this is a parable of female self-empowerment which captures Taylor Dayne’s life growing up in a blue-collar home, becoming a chart-topping musician circumnavigating the globe, rediscovering faith and traditions, and being a single-mother of twins by choice.

It's also a candid glimpse into the music industry, told with a frank, heartfelt female voice for fans interested in Michael Jackson, Prince, Whitney Houston, and others who cross-pollinate between the movie, television, and music industries.
