Short biography
Zoë Ferraris was born in Oklahoma, but moved a lot as the daughter of an Army colonel. She met her Saudi ex-husband in San Francisco where he was studying English. They were married--she was 21. They planned a two-week visit to Jeddah to visit his family, but it turned into a nine month stay. Sequestered unless allowed out with a male escort, she was often stopped by the religious police. Tired of her manipulative mother-in-law and the physical restrictions, Zoë and her daughter returned to San Francisco. Her husband followed, but after about a year, they divorced and he returned to Jeddah. He now has three wives by arranged marriages.
