Born and raised in Iraq, educated by American Jesuits in Baghdad, and became an American citizen in 1968.

Background Information

As an Iraqi-American, I published a book titled "Once Upon a Time in Iraq". My main motivation came from friends and acquaintances who seemed interested in what I had to say about the Iraqis after our involvement in Iraq. They thought that what I had to say needed telling. Another motivation was the lack of books about Iraq and Iraqis as told by someone who grew up among them. Most of the recent books about Iraq are about the war in Iraq and written by Americans. After almost seventeen years of being involved in Iraq, I find that the average American is still unaware of what an Iraqi is like.

Additional Information

An excerpt of the book was entered in a writing contest and it won an honorable mention in a field of 25,000 entries.
