From the horrors of war in Yugoslavia to life on a Newcastle council estate in the north of England, the tremendous pace of Flying with Kites will take your breath away. Katya Gjikolli is bent on her own and her son's survival in a world gone mad. Her husband may have been caught by the Serbs, he may be imprisoned, tortured or even dead. She eventually escapes on a refugee flight to the UK. She finds herself housed with another Kosovan refugee in a high-rise flat in a depressed area of Newcastle in the north of England. She begins her new life, finding new friends and a new love. One woman's struggle to survive leads to new friends who live on the edge of the law. There's Bigsy who will do anything to make money, strictly for cash. Chirpy and Wazza make up the colourful trio who aid Bigsy in delivering drugs to the clubs in Newcastle for Everton Sheedie, a dealer with roots in Brixton. Carol, Bigsy's wife, dishes out 'favours' to him dependent on how well he behaves and how much money he gives her to spend. Polly is an art student with a talent for flying kites, as well as an eye for a good photograph and for Katya. Other characters are peppered throughout the novel providing colour and depth, making this a terrific read. It has got sex and violence. It's also got tenderness so well written that it will bring a tear to the eye.

" A Guyanese Girl's Story "is a series of short stories from my childhood. One of my favorite is ""Kite Flying in the Village." "Kite flying is a family outing for many in Guyana, South America. Easter is a very special holiday in my village of Vreedenhoop in which the children of many ages make and decorate kites to fly in celebration of Easter. Another part of kite flying is when mischievous children cut down kites by attaching a razor to their own kites. In this story the main character Anya deals with a mean boy named Joey who lives next door. While flying kites, Anya learns a valuable lesson of friendship and family. Children will enjoy the sneaky plots of the mean neighborhood boy as well as the colorful illustrations.

Our poems are our kites. We write them and we fly them in the public sky so people can admire their beauty and their grace. They are a message to all who care to look up and read them. Some of them fly easily and carry on the wind. Some of them flop and fall to the ground. When a poem lifts and sustains flight, it is an exhilarating experience.

Project Management is, in many ways, like flying a kite. How do you design and construct it so that it’s lifted high and strong by the wind? What do you do when it gets snagged in a tree, lands on the roof of a house, or is tangled on electrical wire? How do you retrieve it while keeping it intact? Similar elements come into play when executing a project. Successful delivery may be affected by obstacles such as erroneous engineering, defective equipment, late arrival of materials, personnel turnover, among others. While prior planning does indeed help, it takes a skilled pilot to build, fly, rescue, and bring down the kite safely throughout the course of its journey, just like it takes a skilled Project Manager to successfully deliver his (her) project. Like flying a kite, effective project management requires technique, experience and skill to finish the project on good terms. With a combination of practical wisdom borne of decades of experience in international engineering and project management, Why Is It That My Kite Won’t Fly? offers a wealth of research and results-based suggestions for optimizing your approach to project management in a wide variety of sectors.
