At Once Upon a Time Bookstore in Montrose, California on book tour, 2019

My name is S. K. Ali and I love writing all kinds of stories. This may be my favorite thing about being a writer – the way you can explore the moors of your mind, scythe in hand, ready to harvest your imagination.

Wait, that sounds bleak, because nothing harvestable grows on moors. (I just looked it up on the internet and it mentioned heather, bilberries, grasses, thick layers of peat. And earthworms. All of which I do not want to come close to harvesting.)

Ah-ha! That’s precisely where the imagination-part comes in handy. IMAGINATION GROWS ON MOORS! So yes, I’ll resume roaming said moors, scythe in hand.

(I hope you appreciate how I solved that metaphor-conundrum so neatly.)

Thus far, I’ve written:

They’They have all been realistic stories but I have speculative stuff brewing inside me too. Maybe something to do with the moors, and the heather, bilberries, grasses, thick layers of peat and earthworms there. (Or, maybe something about the bog people. <– Only click that link if you’re not eating, have a strong stomach, and aren’t scared of corpses.)

I also hope to write an adult novel, or two, one of these days. Insha’Allah.

Thank you for visiting me. And welcome, again, to my words. ❤
