At the age of 64 I can safely say that I have experienced events that many people have not.  I knew who my partner in life was after knowing him for only 10 days.  We have been married for 44 years and 16 of those years were spent living broad between Lebanon, Syria, Iraq and Saudi Arabia.  I experienced these places not as an ex-patriot but as an insider.  I love ancient civilizations and history of the Middle East and it would be a privilege to write stories set in this part of the world. 

I’ve procrastinated long enough about something I’ve always wanted to do, but found every possible reason NOT to do it. I am committed to write my first novel and was encouraged by the program of writing through the NaNoWriMo challenge. I wrote my first draft of my first novel and now it is time to revise and edit. As I complete the revisions I’ll be adding it to my library.

I hope you enjoy the story as much as I enjoyed the experience of writing it.
