My interests as a writer focus on the Middle East and Mediterranean regions, and the interactions between East and West. As a story teller, I am primarily interested in bringing forgotten narratives, particularly those of women, into the public eye. 

In my work as a writer - across fiction, history and journalism - I aim to combine literary sensitivity with rigorous research to offer my readers thoughtful and accurate glimpses of keys events that shape the lives of characters, and the world we live in.

I was born and raised in London but now divide my time between Paris and Beirut. I hold MA degrees in literature and history from Oxford University and UCL. When I am not writing, I consult and write on Middle Eastern topics for various UN agencies, and look after rescue dogs.
