ABOUT ME

Even as a young child I was always conjuring up stories and filling them with colorful characters, sharing them with anyone and everyone who would listen. Since then, I’ve progressed quite a bit to formulating longer and more complex stories and sharing them with much larger audiences. As a professional storyteller, I’m adept at using my imaginative thinking and creative flair to bring my stories to life in engaging and entertaining ways.

 

THE TIGHTENING DARK

Summer 2020

Out on preorder now - check out my latest novel. After spending countless hours working up to its release, I’m proud to announce that it’s finally ready. The riveting memoir of a Lebanese-Muslim-American and thirty-year US Marine veteran, who was seized in Yemen and spent six months in captivity--and an inspiring reminder that the best parts of the American dream are the dreamers. If you liked my previous titles I guarantee you’ll love this one as well.


This story hits a personal note for me as well - as Senior Attache to Yemen at the time of the incident, I was as much a character in the story as an actor in the events. This memoir, co-written with Sam Farran, reflects my own experience in the country, watching the darkness turn to danger as order and safety devolve into chaos, and what it costs each of us to find our way back home.
