You are now entering the world of my thoughts.

This blog is my diary of works in progress. The only way a writer can improve upon her skill is to practice, practice and practice some more. Here, in this place of quiet peace, I pen to paper my thoughts and creativity. Welcome to my world.

Many Voices, One Faith II Islamic Fiction Stories

A Letter to Jeddah pg 195
This is a story about a little girl who tries to make sense of the whirl of events that takes place when she finds out her beloved grandmother is dying from cancer. When the inevitable happens and her grandmother dies, she finds her own way of remembering the most wonderful person she ever loved.

Conflict pg 199
Everyone has at one time in their lives been conflicted between right and wrong, especially when that 'wrong' is socially acceptable and expected but not so much religiously correct. Whether to wear a scarf or go out with the most popular guy in school is just one of many conflicts some Muslim teens and adults have when the pressure of society is overwhelming to conform and assimilate.
