Dilara: The One Who Praises the Heart

Dilara Aslantaş

Terrorism. A haunting word for everyone who has suffered and is suffering from it.

Lonely. Ashamed. Guilty. That is how she felt for many years as she tried to fight her own haunted past and mind that left her clueless. It was not her fault. The guilt had started to eat her up. It was always hard to feel like a normal person and live a normal life after the terror attack that ruined her. Dilara, an eleven-year-old child, was dragged into something unpredictable. She had to get out before it was too late, before she fell into the hole that would swallow her into the darkness.

This is a book about opening a new page to life after suffering from terrorism for a long time. It is about bringing peace. It is a closure.

Dilara Aslantaş is a dreamer, cinema lover and filled with wanderlust. She was born in Istanbul and started her early academic life at Galileo School, Slovakia. Later on she moved to Portsmouth, England. She graduated from Final High School in Bursa, Turkey. As a child, she always had a soft spot for reading and borrowing thirty books at the same time from the library at Portsmouth, where she started writing her own stories inspired by her favourite author, Jaqueline Wilson. She graduated as a radio, TV and cinema student from the University of Baskent, Ankara.

When she is not obliged with any work, she loves to take strolls like a flâneur, dreaming big as she does. She also has a soft spot for chocolate and cannot resist when it is being offered. Her greatest motivation and aim is to help people find themselves.
