Barbara Malone on Fear and Politics
Barbara Malone is no stranger to politics at all levels of government–local, national, and international. She spent seven years in Washington, D.C. working in government and in the international corporate community. She was a founding partner of The Washington International Business Report (now in its fourth decade of publication), and she interacted extensively with the Washington political and diplomatic communities.
At the time, she was married to a Nixon White House speechwriter and saw Watergate from the inside. At the close of the Nixon Administration, she and her husband sought political exile in Texas and worked at the local level to build the Republican Party. When Bill Clements was elected as the first Republican Governor in 200 years, she left for Austin to assist the Governor in the development and implementation of Texas-Mexico border policy.
Upon her return to Houston, Barbara served for five years as head of the International Department of the Houston Chamber of Commerce, organizing trade missions to represent Houston in international markets and receiving delegations of business and political interests from around the world.
Barbara enjoys her current role as a writer, editor and strategist, helping authors with their pre-publication manuscripts and working with entrepreneurs on their business communications. She maintains a strong and active network of friends and family around the globe and is a keen observer of the political scene here and abroad.
