Thoughts From AuthorHouse Published Author, Rima Jbara
Since I was twelve years old, I have felt the need to write. I thought it was a phase and it would fade with time, but as I grew older that need became a passion. For a long time, I was unable to disregard this passion. At some point, it sucked me into despair. I lived in the Middle East, wrote in English and published my books locally, and most people in the Middle East read books in the Arabic language. My readers would have to be either Arabs who master the English language or Westerners, and who were considered a selective niche at that time. Today, I am publishing internationally for a larger readership.
