The author is rooted in two distinctively different cultures. Moving to the US, from Persia, during her teenage years forced her to relearn how to build relationships and what makes them successful or fail.
She went through years of soul searching while also watching her family members and friends go through their relationships struggles.
This is a deeply personal book with hard-won insights. Her own success of handling her personal life, led to coaching of friends and family who were going through a tough time in their relationships. Increasingly more friends sought her advice and sharing it in a book may help many more people.
Especially since many relationship-oriented books by others, share interesting points and advice, none of them connect spiritual well-being with practical advice. She hopes her advice will resonate with everyone who wants to improve their relationships.
The author lives in Northern California sharing her home with her husband, son, and two twin daughters.
