Sameena K. Mughal is an author and freelance writer. Rediscovering her passion for literature after many years of teaching, she introduced her debut novel, Shaherazade’s Daughters as a feminist homage to the classic 1001 Arabian Nights. Her second book, The Siddiqui Brothers in Cairo follows the adventures of eccentric scientists who, ironically, are too forward- thinking in The Golden Age of Islam, a time that is known for its progressive ideas.
The daughter of immigrants who came to the United States from Uganda in 1972, Sameena developed a distinct voice as a first generation American and cultural hybrid. This perspective weaves itself into her fiction and other writing.
She currently lives in Marietta, Georgia with her rescue dog, Edison. Sameena also writes fiction and sociopolitical commentary on her Behind and Beyond the Veil blog at www.sameenakmughal.com.
