Janet Wallach is a journalist and the author of eight books.

Personal:
She was married to the late John Wallach, founder and president of Seeds of Peace, and has two sons, David Allyn, and Michael Wallach.

Background:
Her most well-known book, Desert Queen; The Extraordinary Life of Gertrude Bell (Nan A. Talese/Doubleday, 1996), has been translated into twelve languages and was praised by The Boston Globe for being "as timely as today's headlines." "Wallach comfortably commands the political and diplomatic history of the Middle East," said the Chicago Tribune
 
Janet Wallach has spent much of her life living and working in the Middle East, and has also co-authored Arafat: In the Eyes of the Beholder (Carol Publishing, 1991, updated 1997); The New Palestinians (Prima, 1992), and Still Small Voices (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1988).  Her most recent book, Seraglio (Nan A. Talese/Doubleday, 2003) is an historical novel that was called "both serious and enchanting" by Publisher's Weekly.  Janet Wallach has been a frequent contributor to The Washington Post Magazine as well as a contributor to Smithsonian Magazine and other periodicals. She has written cover story profiles of Iraqi Ambassador Nizar Hamdoon; Her Majesty Queen Noor of Jordan; Reza Pahlavi, putative heir to the throne of Iran; Palestinian envoy Hassan Abdul Rahman; Saudi entrepreneur Adnan Khashoggi; First Lady of Egypt Jihan Sadat; and the British official Gertrude Bell.
