Telling stories on the page...

I began writing before I knew how to write (my childhood stories attest.) When I was about eight years old, my father put me on a podium at the university in front of the student body to recite my first poem (الزهره: The Flower.) That fed both my love for writing and performing.

I began with poems and short pros in Arabic and then English. With the years, I moved on to plays and articles and most recently longer stories forming into books. Most of what I recently write is in English. I have also begun writing in Dutch – even though I am far from mastering the language… I just can’t help it- I have to admit I like this new language…
