Who are you?

I am Egyptian and had lived in the USA for the past 26 years. I started my career as an educator and even became a California teaching candidate, then I decided to change my career to professional writing. This what I'm doing for a living in Egypt. Most of my clients are American, Canadian or from the UK and I'm marketing to prospective Egyptian clients right now.    more ...

I’ve been writing professionally since about 1988. I did my first professional, freelance journalism when I lived in Egypt, writing for what was then the biggest English-language publication in the country, a glossy, color mag for ex-pats called CAIRO TODAY.    more ...

My name is Mairead Hoey, I am an Irish expat with a husband, three kids and an ancient dog, trying my best to avoid becoming a "lady who lunches".

We moved to Cairo in June 09. My husband was made redundant so I applied online for him to all the places I wanted to visit. Fortunately Cairo popped up as we could just as easily have ended up in India or one of the Stans.

The biggest challenge was the dog and all the associated paperwork. UK bureaucracy dictated that i should fly from N Ireland to the mainland to sort it out. Even the civil servants couldn't believe how ridiculous this was. Luckily I used my Irish passport and went through Dublin instead, and the dog flew out with us on the same plane. On a more personal note, convincing three teenagers it would be a wonderful experience, and not the end of the world was a roller coaster of emotions.    more ...
