press release

“…an excellent and much recommended pick for unique fiction collections.”  Michael Dunford,  Midwest Book Review

“…I also love the idea of telling the story from the woman’s perspective, especially when the woman is only mentioned in passing in the official story, or not mentioned at all although it is understood that such a woman must have been in the background of the story (I’m thinking of Noah’s wife and Cain’s wife in particular here). I’m excited to have discovered this, and can’t wait to get a copy and read it.”   Shana – Tales of Minor Interest

Satellites out of Orbit  is an entertaining read. To get the most out of it, the reader requires an open mind. It needs to be taken for what it is: a subjective view on the subjectivity of literature and history. Wind exposes how the simple stories that are often considered ‘romantic’, or are the basis for belief systems, can be used for the subjugation of women. The pieces also point out that there is still a paradox in our society as women have greater freedom outside of the home, but are still expected to attain certain ‘ideals’.”  Isabel Ischenko, smashwords
