I am a journalist, a poet and a linguist originally from Egypt. I moved to London in the seventies, then retreated to Canterbury in the early nineties.


Background Information

     Since I moved to Canterbury in the beginning of the nineties, I have been contemplatingThe Sack, as well as Dreamland Test, which is an extensive research about Reality, my obsessive theme. My work has been published in literary and women's magazines and international newspapers. I have participated in The Family Program on the BBC Arabic Service in the late eighties. It was my literary argument in the mid-eighties about women's rights and one of the eminent figures in Arabic literature who died in the seventies, A. M. ElAaqqaad, which brought my name to the liht.

     It is my linguistic skills and Egyptian background which helped me approach and decipher the secrets of the Ancient Egyptians ‘right’ for the first time. That is a fact which The Sack reveals and my other book, 'Dreamland Test', details.  I AM AN 'INSIDER' WHO SEES WITH THE ANCIENT EGYPTIANS' EYES, THE SECRET OF WHICH, as I emphasizes, IS ‘LOVE'.

     As my Sack reveals, it is the inspiring voices of the Egyptian star, Shaadya, and the late Egyptian singer, Abdel haleem Haafiz, which are 'the milk that first fed me'. They both dwell in my heart and soul since I opened my eyes on life. That is why I dedicated the second volume of my Sack to them. However, it never occurred to me that my sincere dedication to the late Haleem would connect him, not only to my late mother, but also to the Pharaohs! That is the unprecedented revelation which the second volume of my Sack declares.

 


     My blogs on the publisher's website detailed below, shed light on my theory of life which proves Darwin’s approach wrong. Not only that, but also my Facebook page and groups detailed below are my mission to spread the word of mercy, understanding and love:

The Perch, A Birds’ Voice Group.

Only Fools … Group.

The Love Page Group.

     More details are available on the relevant Facebook pages.
