THE National Association of Professional and Executive Women (USA) has selected Islamic author and illustrator Linda “iLham” Barto as its 2010 Woman of the Year in the arts category.  Only one woman from each category is selected from thousands of women from across the United States.  Linda was chosen because of her many accomplishments, which included her being a featured author at the 2009 Art Expo America (NY) and having three books published in 2009.  Her first book of 2009 featured forty-six watercolor illustrations for nine, original, Muslim fables.  Where the Ghost Camel Grins:  Muslim Fables for Families of All Faiths was published by Tahrike Tarsile Qur’an.  Ramadan Rhapsody:  A Daily Celebration was published by Amana Publications and is a daily devotional in observance of the month of Ramadan.   Linda’s latest book is The Bible and the Qur’an at the Edge of Renaissance:  A Judeo-Christian-Muslim Compass to a World of Peace, published by Mill City Press.  The manuscript, which took six years of research and writing, beckons readers to focus on the consonant values of all religions of light to wonderfully and vigorously affect the world for a global, spiritual renaissance.

Linda is a veteran of the United States Air Force and North Carolina Air National Guard.  She lives in North Carolina with her husband Tom and is the mother of two children.  More about Linda and her work is available on her website
