MORE ABOUT "HONOR"
"Honor" was first written 2007-2008.
Its controversial nature made the established agents and publishers fearful of publishing it.
A more open-minded interest in Islamic culture, combined with rising outrage against so-called "honor" killings, have changed that.
"Honor" was published in March 2012 by Mad Bear Books and soon became an Amazon best-seller in the UK and Germany.
