¡Hola! Welcome to my Goodreads page. Thank you so much for dropping by.

I'm a Medical student, currently living in east coast Malaysia with my family and my ever so growing collection of books. Born in the majestic city of Cairo, I grew up in many countries before relocating to Malaysia in 2017. I used to live in the sunny Cape Town, the sandy Egypt, and the hilly part of the UK.

I love to write just about almost anything. Thus far, my themes generally revolves around the occasional subjects of women’s fictions (motherhood, marriage, dramas and a considerable portion of romance), family values and ethical paradox; encompassing religion, crime and social beliefs.

My debut novel, After the Storm was shortlisted for the Popular’s Readers Choice

Glasgow | 2017 T wo months ago (more or less), I did what I never thought I could. I actually did it! I conformed to the idea of leaving my snuggly nest and slowly water the seeds of hope, of starting over in a new place. It wasn't precisely a new place. I was positively informed that where I was headed, wasn't exactly a foreign country. It was my homeland; the place where I could recall a goo... Read more of this blog post »

Diyar Harraz, After the Storm

“.....the only sound was of the crickets, and the glittering speckled of stars on the night sky as witness of her biggest mistake, the night when it changed her life forever.”
Diyar Harraz, One Minute to Midnight

Diyar Harraz, After the Storm

“The heart is the toughest part of the body.
Tenderness is in the hands.”
Carolyn Forché, The Country Between Us

“Every family has a story, and I love that those stories are etched in sand rather than granite. That way we can change them. We can bury the lies and embrace the truth. And we can move forward.”
Diane Chamberlain, The Lies We Told

“You don't love someone because they're perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they're not.”
Jodi Picoult, My Sister's Keeper

“When you have friends, don’t expect your friends to fill your emptiness. When you get married, don’t expect your spouse to fulfill your every need. When you’re an activist, don’t put your hope in the results. When you’re in trouble don’t depend on yourself. Don’t depend on people. Depend on Allah.”
Yasmin Mogahed

“When you love someone, you say their name different. Like it's safe inside your mouth.”
Jodi Picoult, Handle with Care
