Portrait by Olivia Shae
Omar Mouallem is the first of 9 Alphabook alums for this third series. (Note: each alum is doing the portrait for another alum. In this case my 6 year old niece painted Omar.)
He has appeared on this site several times with his own stories and as a character in my stories. But more than that his life is brimming with iphone schedules and new things. He is fairly new to being a husband, newer yet- he left his job as an associate editor of a magazine to become a full-time freelance writer, and then newest of all he is the Writer in Residence for the Edmonton Public Library! NEW THINGS!
