About meI'm an avid reader (okay I'm a rabid reader). I generally read fiction (Mystery/Suspense, Romantic Suspense, Thrillers, and some Paranormal/Fantasy) and Classics along with non-fiction relating to aromatherapy, herbalism, perfumery, comparative religion, Islam and all things tea.
I'm also a writer. I've written several informative booklets on Islam and Muslims, co-authored and edited stories on Islamic parables, as well as authored numerous Islamic articles and reviews...although I've written articles, booklets, etc., I remain primarily a devoted reader.

About my libraryI have an extensive library of non-fiction books (currently seven 5-shelf bookcases overfilled with hardcover and paperback non-fiction books). These include books on and about Islam and Muslims, Comparative Religion, Aromatherapy, Herbalism, Naturopathic Medicine, and Tea. My fiction books are mostly in digital format and read using various ebook apps.
