George is a writer, poet, yogi, and…just kidding, I won’t do my bio in the 3rd person!
I’m an avid reader and writer of fiction. I recently signed with my agent, Jennifer Azantian, for my children’s novel, and am excited to continue to grow in that space. For my writing, I’ve been selected for the Maine Writers and Publishers Alliance’s Dibner Fellowship, for the UK-based WriteMentor program (with whom I am now a mentor), and for PitchWars.
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 and have a gym addiction that balances 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!
