Who am I? A writer; I write about forgotten emotions, I awaken the good in you, I tease the demon you are, I touch your spirit, and I kiss you goodnight.
A passionate free-spirited writer who writes about women, love, Palestine, life, social justice and basically this universe with all its dimensions, the clear and the yet to be discovered.
I write in both Arabic and English languages and my writing style includes different forms: stories, scenarios, poetry, plays, articles, interviews and business writing.
I do poetry nights, and bigger plans are in the making now. #waitforit
Author of "أوراق منثورة" (Scattered Papers): it contains portraits of words of different themes written as poems and short stories.

On a different note, there is a pending campaign "Inspire and Make a Difference" (IMD); to be part of it and for more details on the campaign which will be a part of a new book please visit my blog.
Two books are being written at the moment, one depends on the writer being inspired and the other depends on people being inspired.
- My writings are meant to set fire in your brains, and flames in your heart, so if I'm gone and you still feel the heat, then, I made it.
- At times, when things go wrong, we just give up and say the heart can't take it anymore, but once we meet new people, we realize that our heart can always open up to something new, someone new, or a new adventure. Our hearts shall never stop taking in, as it's in the heart then in the brain, whe
