Hello and welcome! I am the author of the diverse romantic comedy, AYESHA AT LAST (HarperCollins Canada 2018, Atlantic Books UK 2019, Berkley Books USA 2019). My debut novel is a Pride and Prejudice reboot, set in a close knit Toronto Muslim community and inside a boisterous South Asian family. I also write a funny parenting column called SAMOSAS AND MAPLE SYRUP for The Toronto Star, Canada's largest daily newspaper. I live in Toronto with my husband and children. Read more of my writing at and thanks for visiting!
