The Novel: After Cairo
After Cairo is my first novel. The book is a sequel to the movie, Cairo Time.
I wrote the novel because I believe that art changes lives. Music, sculpture, painting, novels and films — they have the power to move us and shape us. In my case, a film ushered me into the world of fiction writing. For someone who started out as an historian, that was a change in direction.

Making friends is one of the best reasons to write or to do any type of art. The Featured Friend section is designed to give us all an opportunity to hear from thoughtful and thought-provoking people who bring art to life in so many ways.
