I was born in Lebanon, raised in several countries, and now reside in Berlin, Germany.

I started my writing career with Sensitive and Extraordinary Kids, a blog
 about the joys and challenges of parenting a highly sensitive child, and two self-published picture books for highly sensitive children which have been recommended by Dr. Elaine Aron and Dr. Ted Zeff. I was later fortunate enough to work with Marshall Cavendish, Penguin Random House SEA, and Chronicle Books.

In my years as an author, I have had the pleasure of working with Barbara Moxham who has completed my stories with her gorgeous art. I just love her to bits. Read more about our partnership here.

Believe it or not, this is the best headshot picture I have. I am just not very good at having my photo taken (but I do enjoy a good laugh).
