I’m Anne-Rae. I write, I film, I blog, I cook and I watch shows like Timeless, Stranger Things, Persons of Interest, Fringe, Medium, Supernatural and Turkish soap operas. Here you’ll find book reviews; comments on my experiences: marketing (my film, series, books), film making, cooking; and videos of my favourite Turkish soap operas. Have a seat and help yourself to some freshly baked baklava and let me pour you a cup of Arabic coffee.
Kick back and listen to the theme song for Sanawat al Daya… it is one of my favourites.

After completing the first draft of her book “Almost a Turkish Soap Opera”, Anne-Rae pitched the story to producer Joseph Khalil who later produced it into an award winning independent feature film and web series and Anne-Rae’s directorial debut. The feature film and series have been screened at North American film festivals.
Almost a Turkish Soap Opera (an independent feature film, web series and novel) is about the turmoil of two young modern Turkish men looking for the glamour in Hollywood. Instead of finding fortune and fame, they end up in arranged marriages, illegal employment, scandalous affairs, and family chaos. Details can be found at www.almostaturkishsoapopera.com.
