Ranya O. Khalifa

Ranya O. Khalifa has had a lifelong passion for writing and story-telling since the age of eight, holding a strong unshakeable belief that the written word is a majestic tool whereby an author imprints images in every reader’s mind. Her poetry collection, entitled, ‘To the Majesty of the Word’, attests to her fundamental conviction that words are extremely powerful and potent means of human story-telling and emotional connectivity. This is her second thriller novel, yet the first in the murder-crime sub-genre, where she takes the reader on a no holds barred ‘who-dun-it’ high speed-chase. Full of explosive twists and turns, multiple villains, and a slew of con artists, readers should expect nothing less than a breathless, unstoppable rollercoaster ride. Ranya holds a B.A in mass communication and an M.A in middle eastern studies from The American University in Cairo, Egypt. She has worked in several fields such as journalism, advertising, research, and has had a lifelong passion for traveling, poetry writing, as well as performing and visual arts.
