About Michele LMS

I have an advanced degree in Economics and worked in Washington, DC for 17 years, before moving with my husband and two miniature poodles to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia where I lived and worked from 2000 to 2004. Doha, Qatar has been my residence since 2004, and I worked for Shell Oil Company in Qatar before becoming a published writer relating intercultural experiences between the Arab world and U.S./west. My published works have appeared in magazines in the United States, England, and Qatar. I created a blog so my readers can find out more about what it’s like to live in the Arabian Peninsula, at least through my eyes.
