I am honored and thrilled to announce that my newest novel, The Heart of Aleppo: A Story of the Syrian Civil War is now AVAILABLE. This story is set in the midst of 2012’s devastating Battle of Aleppo and shows the destruction of the war through the eyes of a 12-year-old protagonist who get separated from his family when the city is attacked.
It was an honor to write this novel. In an over-politicized world, my wish is for this work to humanize those we call “refugees”. Although the protagonist is fictitious, this novel accurately depicts the events that transpired in Aleppo during the summer of 2012. I hope that reading this will lead readers to have a greater understanding of the plight those in Syria face, as well as those in other war torn regions. This book is not about the politics of the Syrian Civil War or any other conflict. Its aim is not to convince readers to support any faction or political party. Instead, this story is about the unbreakable spirit of humanity. It is about how humanity’s strength often burns brightest during the darkest hours.
The book has received some amazing pre-release reviews and you can read some on the Goodreads site. The novel is available as an ebook and in print through Amazon. Thank you for your continued support!
