Born in Hollywood, California, I moved to the UK in 1969, married Moojan in 1971, had two children, Sedrhat (born 1973) and Carmel (born 1976), got my PhD from London School of Economics in 1978 (Foreign Policy of the Gambia) and began working as a freelance editor and publisher, mostly with George Ronald, Publisher, in about 1980. I now have two grandchildren, Dreyfus (2004) and Aaliyeh (2006).
I’ve been a Baha’i all my life – my mother, grandmother and great grandmother were all Baha’is, as well many of my brothers and sisters and several members of our extended family.
My passions are the Baha’i Faith, my family, travel, books, social justice, spiritual development, the advancement of women, human rights, entertaining my friends, jazz and everything to do with the prosperity and advancement of civilization. Oh, and vegetarian cooking.
My un-passions are social injustice, violence and trafficking. And beetroot.
