THE STORY OF ZAHRA

One of PRINCESS SULTANA’S DAUGHTERS

THE WOMEN OF SAND AND MYRRH

Full of GRANDMOTHER’S SECRETS

And ARAB FOLKTALES

Traveling THE ROAD TO TAHRIR SQUARE

Wearing a VEIL OF ROSES

She leaves the THE HOUSE OF OBEDIENCE

And DREAMS OF TRESPASS

Or an EXIT TO EDEN

THE ARABIAN NIGHTS

Are full of NADIA’S SONG

SAND CASTLES

Like ATLANTIS RISING

Remembering STOLEN LIVES

SEVEN DAUGHTERS AND SEVEN SONS

Making THE CHOICE

A TRUST BETRAYED

UNEXPLAINED

Chasing TOMORROW’S DREAM

SCHEHEREZADE GOES WEST

Whispering to ANGELS & DEMONS

Searching for the EYE OF THE PYRAMID

Through the fog of the EMPIRES OF SAND

But, wait, MIRAGE

THE PERFUMED GARDEN OF CHEIKH NEFZAOUI

She never left the HAREM
