Tell us a little about yourself. I'm thrilled to be a published author.
In addition to my writng work, I am on the board of directors of the DAMAH Film Festival. Please check out our website at www.DAMAH.com. It's a new wave in experimental short films that explore spiritual themes in films. Very cool! there's nothing like it. We'll be at Park City again next year and in LA in Feb. 2005.
What was your motivation behind this project? I was alarmed when I started hearing talk show radio personalities rant againt Muslims in America. I wanted to help dispell some of the fear and suspicion Americans were feeling toward their Muslim neighbors, co-wokers and fellow students on campus. I hope this book does this in a way that makes North American Muslims appear more approachable.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? A love for Muslims. They are some of the most hospitable, warm-blooded people I know in the world.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? My greatest influences have been my multicultural family, my foster parents, mentors through the ministry of Campus Crusade, travel to over 20 nations, my husband and children, reading the classics and multicultural fiction, U2, basketball, homeschooling and living in the Middle East and Europe.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: It's all in Muslims Next Door and my two multicultural novels, AmericanEyes and Aysha. My favorite recent book of short stories is Interpretor of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri.
