L.A. Sherman

Goodreads Author

in Sylhet, Bangladesh




Member Since
May 2011


L.A. Sherman grew up in Bradford, England in a strict Muslim family where she learned how to sneak out of the house without making the door creak. At the age of fifteen, she was tricked into going to Bangladesh by her parents and forced to marry a man as old as her father. After four years there with a wicked mother-in-law, she won the visa lottery for America and moved to the Big Apple. Now hard at work on her second book, she lives in Tampa, Florida with her family near a pond full of gators and spends her time doing all the things that Bengali girls don't.

So it's Valentine's Day tomorrow and if you have a significant other you're in for a real treat. Rest assured, you're husband, wife, girlfriend, or boyfriend or fiancé — or your EVERY SATURDAY NIGHT for that matter — will be bringing over heart-shaped boxes of candy, sweet smelling flowers, and a disposition that, in the words of Marvin Gaye, SCREAMS, Let's Get It On. Isn't Valentine's Day fun?... Read more of this blog post »
