George is a writer, poet, yogi, and…just kidding, I won’t do my bio in the 3rd person! Find my long bio below and my short bio beneath the picture.
I’m an avid reader, writer, and blogger. My novel, SHAD HADID AND THE ALCHEMISTS OF ALEXANDRIA is forthcoming from HarperCollins (2022). My blog centers on creativity, but also finance, as I’m also an MBA grad and finance nerd.
For my writing, I’ve been selected for the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance’s Dibner Fellowship, and as a mentor for the UK-based WriteMentor program, PitchWars, and Author Mentor Match. Some other hobbies I have are baking (though I’m a total amateur) and volunteering, whether to read to preschoolers or teach English courses. I’ve also recently gotten (very) into yoga to balance my uncontrollable sweet tooth.
Whenever I can, I try and travel back to my native country of Lebanon. Oh, and I’m Lebanese-American (dual citizen) and speak fluent Arabic, so feel free to drop the introductory “marhaban” and I’ll throw back an “ahlan”.
Now, enjoy a picture of me and the pup, Sushi!
