Hi!

My name is Ramla Zareen, and I was born on 23rd January, 1984 in Karachi, Pakistan. I completed my MBA in 2006 from Bahria University, Karachi. I then got married and moved to Frankfurt am Main, Germany, where I live with my husband and daughter. I’m now officially a German national, but I remain attached to my homeland and visit it regularly.

Reading and writing are my most favourite pastimes, and I’m happiest when immersed in the wonderful world of fiction. I write light-hearted, romantic fiction, set in modern-day Pakistan, and I hope my books give at least half as much joy to others as the books by my favourite authors have given me.

My favourite genres to read are: Golden-Age Mystery, Cozy Mystery, Historical Romance, Contemporary Rom

Hi Irfan,

Thank you for your queries. I really appreciate your interest :-)

I mostly read to unwind or to be entertained, so I don't usually pick up heavy, life-altering books. Lol. Having said that, the genres I read most focus mainly on the characters and how they evolve—individually and as a part of a relationship. Whatever lessons I learn from their experiences, I try to implement them in my own life. So in a way, every book I read has some sort of an impact on me. 

My characters are fictional, but I try to make them as relatable as possible. I hope people not only enjoy reading about them but also learn something positive from their experiences.

Thank you for the good wishes. I wish you all the best in your life as well :-)

Hi,
First of all, thank you for your query. I really appreciate your interest :-)

It took me around two to three years to complete my first book. During this time, the book went through major revisions based on feedback from my critique partners and beta readers.

Thanks again,

“He nearly groaned out loud. How could he have let his experience with Sana make him so cynical, so judgemental? He loved Aisha, but he hadn’t trusted her. And so, he had lost her. It felt as if his heart was being ripped out of his chest. His jaw clenched. The pain of trusting the wrong person? It was nothing compared to the pain of not trusting the right one. The repercussions of valuing an undeserving woman? They were far less devastating than those of maligning an honourable woman.
He recalled the agonised, betrayed expression that had replaced Aisha’s initial shock at his ill-founded accusations, and a shudder tore through him. It felt as if his soul was shrivelling inside his body. No matter how much it hurt to have your trust broken, it hurt a million times more to break someone’s trust in you.”
Ramla Zareen Ahmad, The One for Me

“A relationship is meaningless without trust, respect, and loyalty. But I’ve realised love is even more important. You know why? Because love softens our heart and enables us to forgive. And forgiveness is one thing that we humans, flawed and prone to making mistakes as we are, need time after time. Love helps two people to stay together despite each other’s imperfections. And that’s what a relationship needs the most to survive.”
Ramla Zareen Ahmad, The One for Me

“Humans can’t fly. The Earth isn’t flat. Her mother couldn’t lie.
Three facts Aisha Malik would have been willing to bet her life on. Good thing she hadn’t, because her mother, in an attempt to secure a marriage proposal for her, had just told a lie.
Aisha was an adequate cook as far as preparing normal, everyday meals was concerned, but making mind-blowing desserts, like the delicious chocolate cake everyone was generously praising? That was far beyond her culinary expertise. Contrary to what her mother had just said to impress their guests, that chocolate cake was not baked by Aisha.
It was made in a bakery.”
