As a sassy young woman used to blagging, blogging and slogging her way through dreary London, the call of a glamorous, tax-free lifestyle in sunny Dubai just couldn’t go unanswered. During two and a half years, an entire city rose from the dust around Becky, along with a good few rungs of that hard-to-climb career ladder. She was a celebrity editor in a land where sex definitely does not sell and spent most nights in a five-star blur of champagne luxury. For two and a half years, Dubai gave Becky everything, but it all got a bit messy -- not least because a wealthy jealous Arab made her his mistress. These days, shamed rule-breakers and failed entrepreneurs are a dime a dozen in Dubai, but it wasn’t always so tragic. Becky lifts the burqa behind the razzle dazzle and what it was really like to live in the world’s fastest up and coming city.

About the Author:
Rebecca Wicks was born in 1979. She attended the Gleed School for Girls, also known as 'The Virgin Megastore' in small town Spalding, Lincolnshire, England. She studied media production at Lincoln University, but was writing freelance from the age of 14.
She arrived in NYC in 2001 at age 21. She worked for a production company and wrote for a NYC restaurant guide, as well as a Brooklyn community mag (also dated the editor, who broke her heart). Back in London, from 2004 she worked for a travel and entertainment dot com which led her to theatre-land, interviewing West end actors and reviewing more restaurants.
