A few words about myself: being a native of a small country whose waist is seventeen kilometers wide in a certain area; and in seven to eight hours drive one can cross its length, I was amazed on my first tour abroad by the vastness and distances I've met with. I could have seen it on maps much earlier, that's true, but realizing it was a stunning experience. I visited Africa east and west and was enchanted by the landscapes, the wildlife, the rain forests, its diverse population; I've visited Europe and was awed and inspired by humanity's achievements, the richness of culture and tradition; the museums, the cathedrals, the architecture old versus modern. I've learned the meaning of what a masterpiece is, spending hours before huge incredibly beautiful paintings and sculpture; wondering how on earth they have managed to do it. The huge cities, the way of life the beautiful languages, the customs, it left its marks on me and is the cause no doubt to my own efforts and to what I'm trying to reach up to this very day.
My interest in art and literature isn't limited to enjoying it as a bystander. I've had five art exhibitions in my country, served as an art critic and I'm a published author. I've published six collections of short stories: 'The unveiling', 'The Red Square' and 'Some facts of life', 'A fateful opportunity'; 'It's God's wish', 'The dream and its outcome.; and five novels; 'An African sunset', 'The remote control job', 'The death sciences', 'Summer tempest' and 'An irretrievable step and my sixth thriller: 'On both sides of the abyss'.
"On both sides of the abyss" relates the trials of Amina Rifa'ee, a young Syrian woman
that refused to marry her father business associate and was sent to study in London School of Economics. Her loneliness drives her to the arms of Murad the Libyan (an Israeli Mossad member) that introduces her after a relationship of several months to Kenneth Collins the Beirut American embassy's press attaché who is in fact a CIA agent. The latter takes her with him to Beirut to train her as secret agent, which would serve
the Israeli Mossad in Damascus, without her being aware to it.
She's caught by the Syrian internal security service and agrees to become a
double agent, to atone for her treason instead of arrest, torture and death.
