AMAL ABOU-EID is a passionate educator and very busy mother to 3 young boys. Living in Melbourne, Australia, Amal is surrounded by people of various faiths and cultures.
The daughter of Lebanese migrants, Amal identifies as a Muslim Lebanese Australian and credits the splendours of multiculturalism as her inspiration for writing.
Hoping to educate readers about her faith and her cultural heritage, Amal writes books which explain aspects of Islam that are often misunderstood and misrepresented.
She hopes her books will give Muslim children stories they can relate to and stories they can identify with. She hopes her stories will educate readers and inspire others to share their own stories, too.
