I’m an Iraqi-Welsh writer; my debut novel, The Watermelon Boys was published in 2018 and received a Betty Trask Award.
I was the London Book Fair 2020 writer in residence in Sharjah, and I'm featured in the essay collection Just So You Know (2020, Parthian Books).
When I’m not working on new writing, you’ll find me taking photos or playing American football. Sometimes simultaneously.
I see the world through punglasses.
