Nasreen Pejvack began writing as a Canadian author in 2014. Her debut novel “Amity” was published by Inanna Publications in October of 2015 and was a finalist for British Columbia’s 2016 Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize.
Following that successful novel, she went on to complete “Paradise of the Downcasts,” a collection of short tales and essays inspired by her experiences of life in Canada. She also has a collection of poems entitled “Waiting,” and both books were published/printed by McNally Robinson in 2018. In Nasreen’s stories, her characters give expression to her life’s learning and experiences in order to relate narratives relevant to the concerns of our time. “Luyten’s Star” is her newest publication, a sci-fi novel.

Is There a Mystery to “Blind Obedience?” - Nasreen Pejvack

The discipline of Psychology teaches us that Blind Obedience is a behaviour whereby people do as they are told without thinking for themselves on whether what they hear is true or whether they should obey orders.

In combat, soldiers are trained to follow orders without question, but this allows their commanders to have them inflict atrocities that most civilians would view as unethical. This confor Read more of this blog post »

"I was so thrilled to get this new book by Nasreen. Just like in her other books “Amity” and “Paradise of the Downcasts”, we have great scenes of drama, love, and adventure. She discusses how the politics of the old guard has failed over the centuries" Read more of this review »

“Women
The vital essence of life
The embryo of the future
The foundation of existence
Woman, mother, daughter and sister
Eradicate them, and there is nothing”
Nasreen Pejvack, Amity

“We have discovered a lot about our home planet, we now even know much more about our universe
BUT
We haven’t been able to keep the peace and live as civilized, intelligent beings should live.
The “Self”, which is a combination of greed, resentment, and competition, is still the Master!”
