About The Author

      I was born in Lebanon in 1946, studied medicine at the American University of Beirut, and came to Oklahoma in 1971 for post-graduate training in internal medicine and infectious diseases.  Of my seventy years, I have spent the last forty-five in Oklahoma where I have been productive as physician and writer. 

      I met my wife Judy in 1986 and she has been my office manager and editor ever since.  We started our own publishing company in 1995 and called it ALMUALIF, an Arabic word which means The Author.  We reside in Edmond and we have five children and nine grandchildren.
