I love to laugh ... and laugh until tears of happinness cascade down my face and wash my whole body and soul with goodness.

    

 

 

 

 

 I was born and raised in Iran from Armenian origin. As a teenager and a young girl, my life was filled with laughter, love, and happiness - tinged with occasional sadness. Two years after my marriage,  when my daughter was one-year-old, my  nomadic life began together with my husband and child. Our son was born in Germany and was only three- months-old when we returned to Iran for a period of one year. From that date on, a tumultuous life began for my family and me traveling and living across different lands in Europe. In 1973 once again we returned to Iran till late 1977, when the unrest began. Then another rollercoaster of events took shape for us as we lived across Europe, Russia, the United States and Abu Dhabi, until we settled down in Westhampton - USA - where I glimpsed life through different cultures and many sets of eyes, constantly strengthening the threads binding my extended boisterous Armenian family together. Our Armenian community has a long history of rich story telling, shared at the bazaar, at the kitchen table, at tea parties - passed down generation to generation. So maybe writing is in my blood.

I started writing at the age of fifteen - nearly  a million years ago! I've written two children's story books and two novels. "The Talking Animals"  has been read in Long Island elementary schools since 2003. I can't explain why, but I mainly get in writing mood when I drive or walk in busy, crowded streets. Yes, I love to write...    My most recent novel is a story about a woman battling with emotional upheavals in her married life with which she eventually comes to terms. I was motivated to write this novel by simply listening to my friends' complaints about their husbands. So, what helps me the most to create stories is simply my observation of life going on around me. Recently,  I have completed a new novel which is called, Looking For Georges Bizet on Planet Heaven. It is a fusion of fantasy and reality I will soon be sending out queries.   I have also writen another children's story called, "The Adventures of the Little Acorn.'
