When suspense writer, Sahar Abdulaziz isn’t busy plotting a stabbing, a garroting, or a murder (all on paper of course) she’s busy writing about her crew of highly-entertaining, quirky, unpredictable book characters. Some have been lovely, big-hearted, gentle souls, merely temporarily lost and in search of answers, while others have been eccentric, unconventional, writing their own rules – determined to live their best life to the fullest. A few … okay, perhaps more than a few, have been devious, duplicitous, and dangerous. Undeniably not the kind of personalities one would want to cross paths within a dark alley or locked in some seedy hotel room.
