The third anthology from Writers Abroad, an online group of ex-pat writers, is called Foreign Encounters. This time I’ve contributed another creative non-fiction story, The Longest Night, about my adventure with Saudi Arabian wildlife.
This collection of stories, non-fiction articles and poems features a variety of foreign encounters: with family, friends, lovers, animals, cultures, or just with one’s own prejudices and preconceptions.
Author Julia Gregson, a former ex-pat whose bestselling novel East of the Sun won the Prince Maurice Prize for romantic fiction, has written the foreword.
All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to Books Abroad, a charity which coordinates the donation of free books for schools throughout the world, believing that education is a crucial aspect of human progress.
The charity celebrates its 30th anniversary this year and has supplied over 1,600 schools with desperately-needed books.
