After a childhood raised on Bollywood, Monty Python, and Jane Austen, Farah self-rejected her writing career before jotting down a single word, despite admitting her ultimate fantasy was to be a writer. But when she could no longer keep the story arcs straight in her daydreams, she started writing a few years ago and never looked back. She writes comedic women’s fiction full of huge South Asian families, delectable food, and most importantly, brown people falling stupidly in love. Prior to writing, she had careers in Human Resources and Psychotherapy. She lives in Toronto with her patient husband, surly teenager, and delightful middle-grader, along with two gerbils, one hamster, one rabbit, and a fish named Silvia.

I just loved this book. So much. I really enjoyed the first in this series, Appetites and Vices, but Dalliances and Devotion just hit that special sweet spot for me. Amalia was a gem- she was devoted to her cause, her family, and of course to David. ...more

Past Presence by Nicole  Bross
"I loved this so much I immediately went to look for more audio books by this author and narrator. The story and characters were amazing.
I thought Audrey was going to be some prude and was so happy that she seemed like someone I’d want as a friend..." Read more of this review »
