‘Married to the Mossad’ Author Shalva Hessel Joins Daria Anne on Your Book Your Brand Your Business

Can A Wife And Mother Thrive In The Secret World Of Spies? A Woman Who Joined Her Husband On Missions For The Mossad Shares Her Stories

Tune in to Your Book Your Brand Your Business on Monday, March 25 at 5 PM Eastern on W4CY Radio when ‘Married to the Mossad’ author Shalva Hessel joins Daria Anne for a fascinating interview:

The fight against terrorism often happens outside the media radar in a world of secret missions and James Bond-style intrigue. And while these exploits in espionage conjure a macho image, it’s often women who taking a leading role – and face dangers in the bargain.

“Women are especially suited and needed for fighting terrorism and crime,” says Shalva Hessel, author of “Married to the Mossad” (www.shalvahessel.com), a fictionalized version of her own real-life story. Hessel knows something about the subject because she joined her husband on his secret missions for the Mossad, the Israeli national intelligence agency. Why would she subject herself to such dangers? She has a ready answer.

“It’s only when you rise above your own narrow self interest that you find the courage to achieve great things,” Hessel observes. “But women’s contributions to the fight against terrorism don’t always get the attention they deserve. You can’t win the fight against our enemies without strong, brave women at the front,” Hessel states. “Even in the most macho environment like the Mossad, CIA or FBI, the women’s role has never been more important.”
