My name is ILHAM which is pronounced the way it’s spelt. As a kid, I hated my name and did get teased for being a “ham”. But now that I’m an adult, I love the unique-ness and the strength that my name conveys. I definitely have not met another Ilham for sure.

It means inspiration in Arabic, by the way.

I am a debut Canadian Children’s Author of the rhyming picture book, Wonder Walk, which has been released by the small Toronto-based press, Iguana Books. You can read great reviews, upcoming author appearances and where to purchase your own copy, all on the Wonder Walk page
