“I started writing Persian Brides
when I was 21. The plot is based on my grandmother’s personal story. She
was my inspiration for the character Nasie, the heroine of the book. I had
no intention of educating the reader when I wrote this novel, but I take
my reader with me on a feminine odyssey to fantastic Iran in the beginning
of the century. My second novel, was published in Israel in March 1999, and
will be published in English sometime this year. These days I spend my time
collecting material for a third novel.”
