Hi there! My Name is Alwia Al-Hassan and this little corner of the vast internet belongs to my blog baby-Papercuts- a culture magazine -type blog that aims to provide lighthearted and thought-provoking articles on a variety of social, cultural and ideological topics.
I’m also a mother and aspiring author with several projects under work.
The Tressians is my debut new adult novel. It’s a dystopian, post-apocalyptic, apartheid story, which I hope will be on the path to publishing in the not too distant future. I won’t give away too much but let’s just say now that hair plays a huge role in the world of my novel.
I’m also working on my very first children’s picture book, short story and historical novel, as well as researching for a historical novel based around the Eastern province of Saudi Arabia.
Yes, it’s a lot of writing. But it will all be worth it if you all enjoy it.
