If I was told I have a day to live, I wouldn't go to rest. I will type faster!

Most literary books are sorted out by genre: either all poems, short stories, novellas, drama, or novels...etc. This book breaks this rule: it cooks novellas, with short stories, adds some spices of free writing, simmers them all with a pinch of theatrical effect to serve a hearty meal. No dessert is offered because it is a given after finishing this book.

Amr is a lecturer in the Department of English, Qatar University. He also worked at the same university as a Level Supervisor, and currently he is the Testing and Assessment Coordinator. He has M.A in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). He has taught in different American, Egyptian, Bahraini, and Qatari universities.

He worked as a Teacher Trainer, an ESL Instructor and an English Linguistics Lecturer.

Amr’s passion for traveling and his profuse visits to different parts of the world have awakened many senses in him especially his literary abilities. He writes poetry, short stories, prose, and novels. Along with his bounteous interests in different fields such as traveling, photography, bill collection and others, writing has always had a unique place for him. It was born in him in an early stage in his life and urged him to study and enjoy English Literature and Linguistics. Thanks to his studies, interests, trials and errors, and personal efforts, his aptitude for writing got polished and developed over the years. He likes to think that when he is not sleeping, he is writing; even without a pen or a computer!

He has published an anthology of poems in another volume entitled: Dancing with the Muse after Midnight: Music to the Ears.
