Om migWe had a saying in the Peace Corps: “If you go to Latin America, you’ll come back fomenting revolution; If you go to Asia, you’ll come back spiritually enlightened; And if you go to Africa, you’ll come back laughing.” All of which begs the question: what happens if you go to Antarctica? Well, I can’t answer that question. But I can tell you what happened to that wacky girl who graduated (after only five and a half years) from the State University of New York College at Oneonta (school cheer: “Give me an O; Give me an N; Give me a beer!”). She went to Latin America, Asia and Africa, and she came back a weird amalgam of Che Guevara, Mother Teresa and Erma Bombeck! She also came back with malaria and roundworms. But at least she’s never alone!

For seven years, I lived in Ecuador, Uganda and Uzbekistan - sometimes with the Peace Corps, sometimes with CARE, and sometimes just following my big, brave, do-gooder husband around the world. I am neither big nor brave, but that doesn’t seem to stop me from going to some pretty far-out places and getting into some pretty dicey predicaments (or jail or someone else’s civil war). I live in Western Massachusetts now (with the guy I call “St. John” cause he hates when I refer to him as “the live organ donor,” and with the two kids we made with stuff we had lying around the house). Being back in the states hasn’t stopped me from writing about life in the rest of the world - and it hasn’t necessarily kept me out of trouble (or jail) either.

I may not be as big or as brave (or have quite as much facial hair) as my husband, but I am a do-gooder at heart. And with FIRST COMES LOVE, THEN COMES MALARIA, I am out to answer the age-old question: How much good can a do-gooder do with one good book? If you visit my "causes" page on my website (www.evebrownwaite.com), you’ll see a picture of me digging a latrine for world peace and you’ll learn about the causes that I am working to support with this book. Soon we’ll be inviting you to tell us how you are “digging latrines for world peace.” Note: This page will not tell you how to dig an actual latrine.
