About Me

I hope you are here because you were so impressed with my short stories at www.AidaZilelian.com

Below is a bit more that I didn't include on the site. 

I wrote two novels: The Girl Who Cried Tuscany, and The Hollowing Moon.

The Girl Cried Tuscany is a collection of non-fiction stories, mostly about my coming-of-age experiences. I decided I didn't like it anymore. So I salvaged some pieces and have had several of them published. The most recent of those pieces is "Liar, Liar". (http://www.lowestoftchronicle.com/issues/issue3/aidazilelian.html)

The Hollowing Moon, however, I am hoping to publish. It is about two teenagers running off into the Midwest. 

I started writing short stories a few years ago. I didn't realize it until I started writing this, but what all the characters in each of my stories have in common is that they are desperate for something. What I am doing (very slowly, I might add) is creating a family tree of characters who will, in time, begin knowing each other and making cameo appearances in the newer stories I write.

I hope that all makes sense. 

As always, thank you for reading.
