An Iranian American author based in Santa Monica, California. She is known for writing young adult fiction.
“We write every day, we fight every day,
we think and scheme and dream a little
dream every day. Manuscripts pile up
in the kitchen sink. Run-on sentences
dangle around our necks. We plant
purple prose in our gardens and snip
the adverbs only to thread them in our
hair. We write with no guarantees, no
certainties, no promises of what might
come and we do it anyway.
This is who we are.”
– Tarhereh Mafi
I'm a food scientist who has chosen the path of creative writing- the one thing which comes to me naturally.
Back in 2013, my love for teaching young learners propelled me into picking teaching as a career. I taught English, Maths and Science in the United Arab Emirates where I lived for ten years. Right now, I live in Coal City, a beautiful hilly area of my country Nigeria.
My website Fiez-writer is a product of my extreme desire to share my writing with the world. Here, I share fiction, poems, thoughts and writing tips.
A huge part of my life is spent with my lovely family and I'm a proud mother to three brilliant kids.
