My name is Ainat Bin Juran, and ‘Out of Sync’ is my debut novel. I’m a wife and a mom of nine-year-old twins; I’ve recently taken up drinking coffee—though it might be just an excuse to have short breaks in which I can listen to audiobooks.
I fell in love with reading at a young age, and fondly remember long car rides with my dad as a kid, talking about sci-fi novels.
My passion for the written word carried into my law degrees, and somewhere along the line, I decided to try my hand at writing fiction.
I found the process inspiring, with all its unexpected twists and turns. I typically plan and mind-map, and yet, sometimes, the characters take control and follow a path I hadn’t even imagined.
The journey to a complete novel is always invigorating and a little crazed; it’s a breath of fresh air and sometimes, it sets one’s teeth on edge; but I wouldn’t trade it for the world …. Not even when I’m laying in bed, bone-tired, and inspiration decides to strike.
I’m always stretching the day, trying to eke out a few more minutes so I’ll have more time to write—so if you see me scribbling something down, chances are that I’m trying to grasp an idea before it slips away.
Here’s the blurb and excerpt from my debut novel, ‘Out of Sync.’ I hope you’ll enjoy it :)
A former fast-food employee, T-shirt seller, and glorified secretary, Ainat eventually found herself with Bachelor’s and LL.M. degrees and working as a lawyer.
A few years later, listening to a catchy pop song about dream fulfillment, Ainat decided to buy a clunky little laptop and get to work. Ten novels and a much better laptop later, she came to the realization that hitting the double-digit mark meant it was time to publish and start consuming coffee (though not necessarily in that order).
When she isn’t writing, editing, or mothering, Ainat enjoys reading promiscuously, watching political dramas and sci-fi series, and taking embarrassing memos-to-self complete with accents and dramatic pauses that should never be unleashed, ever.
