I write romance novels.
That’s not what I set out to do when I first put fingers to keyboard. I wasn’t thinking about genre at all. All I knew was that I wanted to write funny, joyful books about characters I had rarely seen represented on the page; characters who looked like me, and who would bring a different perspective to the traditional love story.
I write romantic comedies so that I can see my stories represented in the world.
“Hana Khan Carries On,” my second novel, just coming out, is a romantic comedy inspired by the 1995 movie “You’ve Got Mail.”
