Lori Goldstein earned her BA in journalism but eventually found her true writing passion in the world of fictional people. She's never met a beach she didn't love, a book she wouldn't read, or a strange food she wouldn't try. She is the author of SOURCES SAY, which Kirkus calls "Entertaining, thought-provoking, and heartwarming"; SCREEN QUEENS, which Kirkus calls "a fun and uplifting story that celebrates female friendship and empowerment"; and the VOYA-starred young adult contemporary fantasy series BECOMING JINN.

You can visit her online at www.lorigoldsteinbooks.com and interact on Instagram at @lorigoldsteinbooks and Twitter at @loriagoldstein.

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!
