Jump into the worlds of Beenish and Hisham, Qaisar and Rakshi, Sabiha and Ghazi and Haris as they make their way through the jagged rocks and thorns that mar their path to a life they consider satisfactory and worth living.

Find out….

What dire complications can there be in marital life when one of the spouses is a victim of a malicious mental disease in the story Out of the Ordinary.

How the horrors of abuse to which a child is subjected can replicate and intensify as she grows into an adult in the story of Sabiha in Behind Closed Doors.

When life is not rainbows and unicorns, but rather a circus to an educated and sensible adult that Qaisar is as he teeters upon the brink of losing everything that he has in the story At His Mercy.

Where should an inexperienced adolescent Haris in the story The Vigilante proceed to establish a stark identity for himself when already loaded with that of his father?

The way you've put so many emotions together is magnificent! I had tears in my eyes as I read the last lines of 'Out of the ordinary'. Superb!
