Samama Reza

Samama Reza is a Bangladeshi raised in Dubai, where she still lives with her dad, brothers and nine mischievous cats. As a book blogger and avid reader, her obsession with stories began early when her mom used to read folktales to her before bedtime, so she always found comfort in watching movies and reading books.


She would write short stories for her siblings on their birthdays as a middle grader, and her dream to write grew when she regularly started publishing articles in local news outlets. Getting the opportunity to interview authors at Emirates Airline Festival of Literature gave her the confidence she needed to write her debut novel Anti-Romantic and as she grew older, being an author felt like her destiny.
