Florida Here We Come!

WMNF Radio is a community station in Tampa Bay, Florida. Fridays at 11am they have a program called True Talk that focuses on the Middle East and the Muslim World and later today that's precisely where you'll find me, talking to host Samar Dahmash Jarrah and co-host Ahmed Bedeir about Olives.

More details on True Talk are linked here and here's the link if you want to listen in tonight at around 7.30pm Dubai time.

I met Samar when she guested on the radio show I used to co-host with diminutive blonde bombshell Jessica Swann on Dubai Eye Radio. We've sort of kept in touch since and have been meaning to do this for a few weeks now.

It's all part of 'Olives Over America', something of a focus on the US for me over the coming weeks, with a number of US book bloggers reviewing Olives - A Violent Romance. That's going to be something of an acid test as the book will by no means  be playing to a home crowd!

It'll also be interesting to talk to Samar and get an Arab-American perspective on the book. Do feel free to join us later! :)
