About Nedra

My B.A. is in English, and is from the University of North Texas. My first M.A. is also in English (and drama), and is from Sam Houston State University. My second M.A. is in Teaching English as a Second or Other Language, and is from the University of North Texas. Upon graduation with my second M.A., I signed on for a one-year contract to teach English as a Foreign Language at King Faisal University in Hofuf, Eastern Province, Saudi Arabia. This contract was followed by subsequent contracts to teach EFL at universities in Turkey, Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates, and two more universities in Saudi (in Riyadh and in Al-Khobar). I have also taught native-speakers and non-native-speakers of English at the University of North Texas, Texas Tech University, and Richland College (in Dallas).

I returned to the States to pursue a Ph.D. in history at Texas Tech in Lubbock. I have completed all doctoral coursework and passed my comprehensive exams; I am now trying to finish writing my dissertation on American, British, and Saudi Arabian diplomatic and commercial relations in regards to the granting of the Saudi oil concession in the 1930s to a U.S. oil company (Standard Oil) rather than to a British company. This dissertation treats in detail the role of the first British minister to the new Saudi nation in the '30s (as well as attorneys of Standard Oil and the infamous Harry St.John Philby).

I have taught and tutored students of many linguistic backgrounds both here in the States and abroad. I have also traveled in Western and Eastern Europe, the U.K., the States, the Middle East, and Malaysia. My interests and education encompass a wide variety of fields. I have published travel writing on Austria as well as non-fiction.
