About

Loose lips sink ships Having grown up on an island that some archaeologists believe to have been the biblical location of the Garden of Eden, I feel that there are thematic similarities between my own life, and that of my literary/religious counterparts. Like Adam and Eve, I have had to leave my home. Fortunately though, this is where this similarity ends, as I can return home for holidays and even eat apples without admonishment. Joking aside, I feel that growing up in the Middle East has substantially affected my outlook on life. Expatriated and displaced, questions of identity and culture are important to me.
