About the Author

Jean Wishart Blackman

The birth of my granddaughter (in 2014) had me searching for something that I could gift to her. Something enduring and of this region – primarily giving her a taste of Arabia.  At much the same time, I encountered the extraordinary desert hare at both the Al Ain Wild Life Safari Park and the Arabian Wildlife Centre (Sharjah).

 I had my material! I would write a story about a desert hare in the Arabian Desert.
