In my non-professional life I write, a lot. Fast and furiously.
Fiction and essays (samples):
Don't You Know, We're Talking About a, Different Kind of, Revolution (non-fiction piece on sexual harassment in Egypt)
Between 2012 and 2015 I ran a food/travel blog for intolerant (food allergies) people: For the Intolerants
And then there are the novels.
My first, completed in early 2016, is work of fiction. Set in Brussels, and with stops in the flatlands of Canada and the Belgian Congo, it is a story of family histories, identity and belonging, and the transformations that take place when we come to terms with our exquisite and, very human, score of shortcomings.
Current writing projects include a series of short stories and a second book set in British Columbia, Canada. My second novel is a mediation on the complexity of relationships and sexual identity, the moral and ethical challenges of taking part in medically assisted suicide/euthanasia, and the things we learn about ourselves through the choices we make.
