While writing my books "the DNA of Salalah-Dhofar" and "Treasure Chest Salalah-Dhofar" about the Sultanate of Oman, a lot of other stories came to me. Mainly stories from women... Perhaps because of the simple fact that I am a woman too. Their thoughts, achievements and dreams became the backbone for "Whispers of Oman." In the chapter "Reading as a way out," for example, Amna explains how she dealt with injustice done to her in her youth. The stories of Naifa and Dr. Aida give an insight in the way how the modernization of the country took place in 1970. Raya, who is diagnosed with cancer explains the role of her believe in coping with her disease. There is the statement of Sara, a student who explains why playing theatre is so important for her personal development. With 38 portraits and photos, "Whispers of Oman" in the Arabian Peninsula is an inspirational book, mainly about women who took the opportunities their country offered to develop their skills and peruse the things they were good at. "Whispers of Oman" is a tribute to these women their achievements.

About the Author

Writing books is 'my' dream come true. As a Belgium journalist my ideas and writings have given me the opportunity to travel extensively through Europe and China, which has resulted in an international Journalism Award in Italy, three travel books and a book on modern Eastern European art. And last but not least my first novel ' The Earth has Fever.' My writings have also put me on the road to Oman, in Dhofar the Southern region bordering with Yemen, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates. The place has inspired me to write the book ' The DNA of Salalah, Dhofar. A Tourist Guide' and 'Treasure Chest Salalah-Dhofar' (Arabic/English). I developed the blogmagazine https: //alarba.wordpress.com. All this guided me to my latest publication 'Whispers of Oman, ' mainly women stories..., perhaps because of the fact that I am a woman myself. Still I am working on many other dreams, all to follow on my website https: //mariastories.com (a work in progress)...
