About Nour Zikra

Nour Zikra in Mexico

Hello amazing readers!
     My name is Nour Zikra. I was born in Aleppo, Syria, where I originally grew up speaking Arabic and learning some French, English, and Armenian. While I'm still fluent in Arabic, and even more fluent in English, I've lost all knowledge of the Armenian language and can only understand a small amount of French if I concentrate hard enough.
     Anyway, when I was 11 years old, I moved to America where most of my family lived. I began writing stories in English at 13 when I decided that the world of books lacked the stories my imagination wanted to share. Flash forward to many years later and I've become an author of a Young Adult fantasy novel called Dance with the Devil. I published the novel on Amazon in 2011, and I'm currently working on another.
     In December 2014, I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor's Degree in Creative Writing. And while I've achieved a great milestone, it's still the first of many to come.
     I hope you enjoy my books and find them as fun as they were for me to write.

With love,
Nour Zikra
