Lebanese-born Dr. Hanna Saadah, MD is both a creative writer and an infectious disease specialist/professor in Oklahoma City. He travelled to the US in 1971 for completing his post graduate medical training. The twenty-year Lebanese Civil War prevented him from returning to his fatherland, thus making Oklahoma his second home, where he has been productive as both physician and writer. Dr. Saadeh has authored five poetry books, four novels, and two collections of short stories.
