Hussein Zohair

United Arab Emirates

Hussein, a resident of Dubai, developed an interest in writing to counter his inability to speak properly—he stammers too. Over the course of eight years, he has written several stories, scripts, and poems among others. Journeying James, his first book, is a fictional narrative that is exceptionally close to his heart as he has written it while getting inspired by bits and pieces of his own life and his own experiences as a child, who could never properly complete a sentence. Hussein wants to entertain everyone, make them happy, make them cry, and help them get lost in a world that he weaves for them. He wants to leave a mark when he’s gone through the stories he’s told, so that people remember him for his work.
