A parent, children’s doctor and researcher are among the various hats Nazima wears, but her head has always been filled with dreams and her heart in libraries. So it is fitting her creative writing journey has led to this point.
After studying with the Golden Egg Academy, Nazima was awarded a Megaphone Writes mentorship and has worked with author Maisie Chan on her novels.
In 2021, she was shortlisted for the Penguin WriteNow programme and is a graduate of the Harper Collins Author Academy programme. The Library of Forgotten Dreams was longlisted in the 2022 Times Chickenhouse and Write Mentor Children’s Novel Awards as well as being shortlisted in the 2022 Hachette Space to Write Project.
