I grew up in a tiny town called Ruwais in the U.A.E , where books were scarce. I read every book that I could get my hands on and would dream of one day becoming an author. That dream had to be on pause for a long time. While it was collecting dust, I pursued another passion. I did my undergraduate degree in India to become a speech-language pathologist and an audiologist. I moved to Sri Lanka, to work in a clinic that helped children and adults who were hard of hearing. I then moved to Canada to pursue a master’s degree in speech-language pathology at the University of Western Ontario. After I had my son, I revisited my old dream of becoming an author. Apart from writing children’s books, I enjoy writing poetry, baking, doodling and going on all sorts of outdoor adventures.
