About Me

I’m forever trying to figure out what I want to be “when I grow up”. At the same time, I try not to let this hard ass world kill my inner child (although I’d be more than happy for it to kill my inner critic). I’m a writer that often doesn’t like to write, a mother who vacillates between over-parenting and neglect, and a person who deeply loves her fellow humans but mostly tries to avoid them whenever possible.

Though Pakistani and American, I currently live in London. I’m a writer, editor, and educator who loves music, movies, the performing arts, travelling, psychology, spirituality, and spending time with loved ones. One of my short stories was recently published by Bloomsbury UK in the Pakistani-based, Jane Austen-inspired anthology, Austenistan, which was reviewed by The Economist’s 1843 Magazine, BBC, NPR, and The Times. You can check it out here.

I hope you will read my posts with an open heart and a desire to connect. I’d love to know what you think of Lovelorn, and always appreciate honest feedback. If you like what you see and want to read more, please follow me or sign up with your email address. And remember to comment!

Much love and gratitude,
