Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Hi, I'm Safia Fazlul, author of "The Harem"! I was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and lived there shortly before I moved to Oslo, Norway. I grew up preoccupied with reading books and knew as soon as I learned how to write that I wanted to be an author when I grew up. I came to Canada when I was ten years old and found myself curious about the extremely different gender ideologies that I experienced at home and outside in the Canadian world. While at the University of Toronto, I tried to satisfy my curiosity by majoring in history and sociology, focusing on feminist views especially. My interest in feminism and my love for writing pushed me to complete "The Harem", my first novel. I currently lives in Toronto where I'm working on my second book.
