Writers/Authors/Cartoonists

Loulou's story is one of transition: from adolescence into adulthood, from Lebanese to American culture, and from a timid girl learning to become a courageous woman. Her resilience through the challenges she faced inspired me, and I hope they will be a source of strength for other readers who may be trying to overcome similar situations.   -- Michelle Heron, Writer/Editor


As a woman who was born poor and has struggled with her own education while raising children, I was deeply touched by Loulou's story. There's no question that women who struggle, women who work hard, women who strive to break free of social stigma, will find their lives reflected here. I can only hope that women who are not able to relate to these situations are still able to come away with something from this story.  -- Amanda J Hare, Writer/Editor/Reviewer


I am blown away by Nohad's ARAB humanist. It's a riveting book and makes the reader feel all her emotions, whether it be pain or joy or everything else in between. Her paintings as illustrations work beautifully with her story and show her talent as an exceptional artist. A book like this takes a tremendous amount of courage to write. Nohad shows the dark sides of male-dominated cultures across two continents and its effect on her and all women. It's a raw, emotional read but a necessary read and a must-read for men. I'm looking forward to the next book.  -- Paul Jamiol, Political Cartoonist/Author
