I was born in Lancaster, England. Growing up in a single parent household with five other siblings was difficult but at the same time character building.As a young child I found a passion for drawing and writing, which has stayed with me into adulthood.
I graduated from the University of Central Lancashire, England with a BA(Hons) in fashion design. At aged twenty seven, my husband and I packed up our belongings for our lifelong dream to move to California.
Our America dream was completed with the birth of our daughter. A new job opportunity opened up New York, and we decided to relocate to Long Island, NY, where we currently reside.
"Once I picked this up I couldn't put it down, I loved it. It was sweet, provocatively and steamy. It gave me some sad moments and tears but mostly huge smiles. It was truly a celebration of the best emotions overcoming the sad, painful and ugly ones." - Benish Khan, NetGallery Review.
"Heartbreaking No one in my generation will be able to go to Syria for a while. This novel is a window into that world. For anyone who has known child survivors of a war zone (I do), or for people who have only heard the stories on the news, this is a poignant series."- Kristin J.Johnson, Vine Voice Review.
"This book was excellent. It was thought provoking, timely, emotionally gripping, and well written. The current Syrian Civil War serves as the backdrop to a coming of age story that leads to discoveries about oneself, love interests, and parents. Be sure you have enough time available to try and finish this in one setting. You aren't going to want to put it down." - Erin Tipping (Librarian), NetGallery Review.
"I had goosebumps and I cannot remember anymore how many times I had to stop reading to wipe away my tears. A great and very powerful book that will help us see and feel how it is to be in the middle of a war, not only as a victim but also as a fighter. Heartbreaking, thought-provoking and an eye-opener. I'm excited for the second book and will definitely recommend this to my fellow readers." - Kath Quiambao, NetGallery Review.
