I was born in Lahore, Pakistan and grew up in that city of gardens, and saints, shrines and Sufis. It’s a rich tapestry to weave from, and I like to delve into all its shades. I absolutely love reading and writing romances. I just cannot resist paranormal and historical romances. Dragons, werewolves, witches and warlocks…keep ‘em coming, I say.I enjoy reading fantasy, literay fiction and children’s literature as well.
I’ve been published in online literary magazines like The Missing Slate and Running Out of Ink. I also write as Faiqa Mansab. That’s a name I use for my darker endeavours concerning realism. Zeenat Mahal is my nom de plume.
I have three gorgeous sons, with whom I live in Kingston Upon Thames, UK. I’m doing the MFA in creative writing and loving it!
