Karkani sent me an email to say how much she liked the poems on the website. I asked
her if she wanted to put some of her stuff on the site but she said not at the moment.
She is a shy person and the picture you see of her at the top of this page is the
only picture I have of her despite writing two novels in which she appears. She did
suggest I could use her reminiscences that were in one of the novels, and so I reproduce
I will keep reminding her however; she should write and send a new collection of
poems or memories soon. We will see.
Karkani is from Fujairah in the United Arab Emirates and presently lives in Muscat,
the capital of Oman.
