Author: Sameena K. Mughal

Sameena Mughal was born in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. She is the daughter of immigrants who came to the United States from Uganda in 1972. Sameena is a freelance writer and teacher with a passion for literature and 1001 Arabian Nights especially. As an English and ESL teacher, she designed units where her students either retold these stories or wrote one of their own. After reading her students' stories Sameena decided to write one of her own. That one story led to ten, which led to the creation of Shaherazade's Daughters, her first book.
