My debut novel, the Young Adult Contemporary Fantasy Becoming Jinn, is a modern spin on the traditional tale of wish-granting genies. The sequel, Circle of Jinn, releases May 17, 2016 (Feiwel and Friends/Macmillan).

Too much of my day involves chatting books, obsessing over The Vampire Diaries, and perfecting the art of efficient writing through Twitter.

A mother and her infant daughter were pulled from the rubble and both miraculously survived. That baby’s name was Azra, which is my protagonist in BECOMING JINN.

As soon as I heard the name, a character popped into my head. I didn’t know she was a Jinn right off the bat, but as I explored what kind of story I could build around her, I was drawn to one that would allow me to add touches from these other cultures. A fan of contemporary, I decided to merge the fantasy elements with our modern world and drop Azra and her Jinn family into the world in which I live—quite literally into my home state of Massachusetts.

Thanks for asking!

The JINN Series in GIFs


I love Game of Thrones. LOVE. IT. I will be heartbroken when this season comes to an end, but will eagerly await the next book from George R.R. Martin (and it’s okay, I will wait . . . great books take time!).


As an homage to my favorite fandom, what better way to tell the story of Becoming Jinn and Circle of Jinn as a series than through #GoT gifs?


(And, yeah, maybe it’s...
