Hello My Lovelies,

Welcome to my profile! Thanks for checking out my work! (I'm assuming that's what brought you here, after all.)

Some quick facts about me:

20

Female

Racially Ambiguous

Christian

College Junior studying English Lit/Media Studies and Production with a minor in Broadcast Journalism (Yay, one semi-marketable skill!)

Aspiring writer/filmmaker

My pseudonym is an Arabic name meaning "The Pleiades." I chose it because I like stars, "Scheherazade" was taken, and it sounds pretty.

My older work from high school is under the name Celestial Songbird and can be found here: http://www.fictionpress.com/u/619602/Celestial_Songbird#

Random Things I Like: Shakira, dogs, travel, sunsets, tacos, rainbow-colored things, Shakespeare, 30 Rock, painting my nails funky colors, tea, Parks and Recreation, eating, reading, writing, KARAOKE, watching movies/tv, sleeping, bellydancing, Tumblr, star-gazing, The Office (US and UK), working in retail, comedy, Doctor Who!, Stardust (the book and the film), Marvel superheroes, Disney, and chicken souvlaki.

So, that's basically all you really need to know about me. (As you can see, I'm not a terribly complex person, but I'm okay with that.) Check out my work, leave me gratuitous amounts of reviews or PMs if you so desire, and have a good one!

Love always,

Thurayyah

Life was complicated enough. Her job required a clearance, several passports, and lying to her boyfriend. When she gets mixed up with the CIA's fifth most-wanted, she has to go undercover with her partner as his fiancée. It doesn't help that he's overprotective, that they have to sleep in the same bed, or that he manages to get into that little compartment behind her heart.
