I am a MA student at Oxford Brookes University, Oxford, England. I am in the middle of completing my Masters in Creative Writing. I am hoping to go onto to teach the subject after I graduate again later in the year. I live in the UK with my family who are my best friends and my greatest supporters. I decided to explore my talent for creative writing some years ago but I have only recently begun to write in earnest. `The Golden Veil' is a piece of short fiction I wrote some years ago which I have re-visited and re-written. I'm working on a number of pieces at the moment including a piece of non-fiction - a biography written in diary format. So do watch this space. As for my hobbies. I enjoy swimming, I hope to re-join the ladies swimming group at my local swimming baths. I also love cycling, keep-fit and horse-riding. I did take some tennis lessons and I hope to resume this once I have a little more time. I hope to post a number of stories on Smashword in different genres so please do feel free to read and enjoy. Best wishes. SYAA.

In Sousse Khairun-Nisaa hoped soon she would be in the loving arms of Zufar. Sheikh Kaleel was about to get married. Zufar (Sheikh of the Aghlabid Dynasty) was considering killing Sheikh Kaleel. Noor (mother of Khairun-Nisaa, sister of Zufar) had arranged the marriage.
Cool book cover, great font & writing style. A fairly well written thrilling exciting ethnic royalty romance love short story (book). Not always easy to read/follow from start/finish & never a dull moment. Quite a few twists/turns. No grammar errors, repetitive or out of line sequence sentences. Lots of interesting scenarios & a great set of unique characters. It did not wow me so I will have to rate it at 4/5 stars.
Thank you for the free short story (book)
