I was ten when I was caught reading in the bathroom late into the night. My mother banned me from reading ‘story books’ for a whole month. Somewhere in my child’s mind I decided if I couldn’t read, I’d write my own stories.
That was the night in a naval apartment in the then city of Bombay, my passion for writing was born.
The Uncommon Memories of Zeenat Qureishi is my third novel to be published. I have also penned four books for children and numerous short stories.
