I grew up in a small town in Alabama, always curious about the rest of the world. This curiosity drove me to accept a job in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, living there from 1978-1992. I traveled the world enjoying many unusual adventures. After settling in Atlanta, Ga., I started my writing career. You can read about my heroines in the ten books I have written. The Rape of Kuwait; Princess; Princess Sultana's Daughters, Princess Sultana's Circle, Ester's Child, Mayada: Daughter of Iraq; Growing up Bin Laden; For the Love of a Son. Now I'm working on AMERICAN CHICK in SAUDI ARABIA as well as SQUIRREL ON MY HEAD and PUPPY IN MY POCKET. Hope you get to read some of my books as I concentrate mainly on the people and the cultures where I have lived and learned so much. I'm the lucky one!
