Embedded Python - Sharing memory among scripts, threads

I have a multi-threaded C++ software app that embeds Python.

When multi-threading (native system threads) it is possible that
multiple instances of a Python script are active.

I have a requirement to 'share' some data values between these script
instances (e.g. counters, file handles etc).

I notice that 'global' variables are NOT visible or shared among these
script instances.

Does Python offer a solution to this ?

What are my options ?

Thanks for helping.
