My name’s Fatima, and I’ve wanted to be a published author for almost twenty years.
Before that – a quick get-to-know-me because writing isn’t all I’m about.
I love reading, of course. Peter Pan & Harry Potter are my favourites. I love food, specifically Italian, and all kinds of cheese. Doctor Who is one of my favourite shows, because it makes me cry. I love It’s a Wonderful Life for the same reason. Origami relaxes me, and so does yoga. I have a really big family – five siblings, five nephews, a niece. And that’s just the immediate family! I can smell the rain before it falls. It’s my superpower.
I’ve known what I want to do with my life ever since my schooling began. Ever since I became conscious of the idea of what a dream was, really. I graduated from a Bachelor of Creative Arts, and since then, I’ve been writing and writing and writing, whenever I get the chance.
I’m currently working on the second draft of the first book in a trilogy – it’s a fantasy inspired by Arabian mythology, some current events, and my obsession with multi-POV books.
