Since then she has also remained active in Birzeit University and has written two popular novels: Sharon and My Mother-in-Law (2004) and Nothing to Lose But Your Life (2010).
She says: "My books are really about everyday life … about people who want to live."This episode of One on One can be seen from Saturday, August 7, at the following times GMT: Saturday: 0030, 1630; Sunday: 0430, 2330; Monday: 0300, 1230.
