cover reveal -- REMNANTS

I've reached 37K words on REMNANTS, or very nearly done with the first draft. I've been writing at a good pace for the last two weeks, between 500-1000 words/day. At this rate, I should be done by Easter. I've selected the cover image for it and made a slight modification to the original, as I di... Read more of this blog post »

A new biography

I have rewritten the biography - partly to assume the more 'professional' and expected third person, and partly to iterate that 'Religion Without a God' is not intended as a defence of the Right but an exposition of the Left: these are not the same things, authoritarianism arises from various set...

حوار عن الأدب والكتابة والرقابة على كُتب الأطفال... وأشياء أخرى.
منذ فترة طويلة وأنا أرغب في إجراء سلسلة حوارات مع بعض الأدباء والمثقفين حول العالم سواء العالم العربي أو الغربي. يدفعني إلى ذلك فضول عظيم لمعرفة الإجابة عن أسئلة كثيرة تدور في ذهني عن كل كاتب. لم يكن فضولي يتعلّق بأسئلة تتعلّق بكُت... Read more of this blog post »

Where Love is Transcendent

As a writer, the passion of love fascinates me, consumes me, and drives me to craft ever more complex stories of the breathtaking places our hearts can take us. Stories of war, of enemies, of boundaries, of journeys into the unknown which transcend the barriers of space and time.

One of the gifts of living by the ocean is the view is ever-changing. I have a particular relationship with this constant inconstancy. I am grounded in a reality that fluctuates from no will of mine and it humbles me to bear witness to a majesty I know is endless.

Regarding the Heart

The human heart is a very funny looking, hollow in its essence, organ with valves, arteries and veins which gives it a creepy look. That it beats to the rhythm of our emotions gives it credibility that it might just be the symbol of love and romance amongst other symbols.

This is an odd combination of genres, as has been mentioned before, but unlike some reviewers, I think the writer makes it work.
Firstly, life isn't slotted by 'genres'; it's messy and sometimes unknowable, so the story line... Read more of this blog post »

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
