Fatima A.E is an avid reader, and a passionate writer of stories, living in Melbourne, Australia. With her life experiences, being a Lebanese Muslim in a majority Caucasian country, and a lover of books in a majority non-reading family, she has written many stories over the years – both as an escape, and her way of explaining the world around her.

The latest piece was published in a magazine produced by the Hobsons Bay libraries. As a kindergarten teacher and school librarian, her main goal was to instil a love of reading in all the students she came across, and her work proved effective.

Fatima is currently editing the second draft of the first book in a trilogy – a fantasy story, inspired by Arabian mythology, some current events, and her obsession with multi-POV books.

Favourite food: Italian, and all kinds of cheese.

Favourite movie: It’s a Wonderful Life for the same reason.

Superpower: She can smell the rain before it falls.
