Eight years after the 9/11 attacks, Samia-Al-Sayyid an Iraqi immigrant is living a quiet life in New York City after she fled her home to avoid imminent death.

She works hard for her cold, heartless, high-strung boss, loves her seventeen-years-old-son, and cherishes the close friendship she has formed with her best friend Susan.

Nothing can go wrong, or so she thinks – until the estranged brother she left back in Iraqi shows up on her door step. Then she finds herself in a cab, on her way to the hospital to identify her son, a terror suspect who has blown the city, and with it her boss’ husband, and her best friend’s son. With everything lost, she is forced to flee to Iraq where she confronts her past. Will she make peace with her past? Can she get forgiveness for all the damage she has caused?

Full Circle is a contemporary fiction tale of friendship, family, and hope. It explores the devastation of loss, the great capacity to forgive and the lengths our loved ones will go to protect us.

My name is Regina Timothy and I’m the author of Full Circle contemporary fiction novels that follows the lives of three women and how they deal with the challenges they are facing while maintaining their friendships

2. Please tell us the charm point of your book.
This book covers a lot of themes that are hot-button issues in society like terrorism, war in the Middle East, school shootings among many others. It makes for an interesting read and lets the reader witness firsthand the minds of characters confronting these issues and how society is affected.

3. What do you like most about writing this book?
I enjoyed coming up with the characters and giving them unique traits and descriptions. When writing the book I had to do a lot of research on the settings and the different themes covered and the diverse human perceptions towards these themes.

4. What's something you're careful of when writing?
I’m careful to keep my characters’ voices authentic. I also try as much as possible to keep my facts straight about actual places or events or people featured in my story.

5. Grade your book. How many stars out of a perfect score of 5 stars? Please give the reason.
Of course, I would say five stars. This is because the story is compelling and inspiring and a must read for all. It explores human nature and celebrates our resilience. From Goodreads and Amazon the book has also received a lot of great reviews which is a very good thing.

6. What are you working on right now?
I’ve got several projects I’m working on including a novel set in Africa highlighting the plights of child soldiers and early marriages. It’s a book I look forward to reading once it’s done.

7. Please say something to your readers.
Please go out and buy the book, read the book and recommend the book to all your connections whether its family members, friends, book clubs, work colleagues – it is truly an amazing story.
Regina lives in a picturesque village in Kenya where she enjoys amazing landscapes, exotic wildlife, and beautiful sunsets and sunrises. She always had active imagination. By chance, she started blogging in 2012, which rekindled her love for writing and telling stories. When not writing she enjoys watching classic movies (she’s a movie buff), going to the theater and auto shows.
