Catherine Halsall is a retired librarian, having worked for sixteen years as a theological librarian. She holds professional qualifications in librarianship, theology, and pastoral work. During the last years of her working life she was in partnership with her husband in a successful business venture. A recent widow, Catherine has four children and eleven grandchildren, all of whom appear to be enthusiastic achievers. The publication of this book hopefully heralds a new career in writing.
"I have read I Glanced Out the Window and Saw the Edge of the World several times, from its first draft, and have watched it grow in strength to completion. As a lay person I have been enthralled, enlightened, and challenged by the extensively researched information and illuminating insights on the morality of war presented in this beautifully written text. I have been constantly amazed by this remarkable book and hope others will also find it a most worthwhile contribution to the understanding of the complexity of humanity."--Pauline Brockett, was married to an Australian Intelligence Officer who did two tours of South Vietnam
