I am SO excited to announce that my debut novel, THE PACT WE MADE, has been picked up by Borough Press, an imprint of HarperCollinsUK and will be published in March 2019!

Seriously, so much happy dancing the last few days!

This has been a dream of mine for as long as I can remember, and I honestly cannot believe it's finally happening. 

The novel tells the story of Dahlia who is staring down the barrel of her thirtieth birthday, the age when a Kuwaiti woman from a good family is past her prime marrying years. Dahlia straddles two worlds: one in which she’s a modern woman living in a modern city, and another where she can’t have male friends, or leave the country without her father’s consent.

My editor has compared the book to Kate Chopin's The Awakening, and I didn't even tell her that it was an influence!

Reader, I think Borough Press and I will be very happy together...
