AWARD WINNING AUTHOR
“Abdulaziz is a master at crafting a thriller that is paced by truth.”
When 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. Others have been eccentric, unconventional, and used to 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 up with in some seedy hotel room.
Sahar is the author of nine novels––including Secrets That Find Us, Expendable, Tight Rope, Unlikely Friends, and her latest release, The Gatekeeper's Notebook. Most of her work is realistic fiction: psychological thrillers/suspense, and satire. As in real life, many of her idiosyncratic invisible friends face complicated life challenges. However, despite whatever life-trajectory her characters ultimately decide upon, Sahar is determined to tell their stories. Eager to put pen to paper to share their compelling accounts, no matter how hilarious, convoluted, or torturous their adventures become.
Sahar's next novel, DEVOTED FRIENDS, the 2nd book in The Abernathy & Crane Series, is set for release on September 12, 2020.
