About the Author



Francesca Affleck is the author of Discovering the United Emirates, a book hailed by The National as ‘a crucial guide for expats’ and ‘everything you need to know between two covers’.

Affleck is currently an education consultant who has taught in primary schools in Dubai and England. She has travelled across the Emirates extensively to capture, first hand, some of its features. Having previously lived with her family in India, Hong Kong, England, Pakistan, Oman and Singapore, Francesca has plenty experience of different cultures.

Always curious about history, geography and culture, she has nurtured a similar curiosity among young students. Keen to promote their appreciation and understanding of the UAE, she has written an encyclopedia to share what she has learned with young people who live in or visit the UAE.
