Episode 19: Samira Ahmed & The Truth About Expiration Dates on Dreams

Born in Bombay India and raised outside of Chicago, Illinois, Samira spent countless hours at the library in her small hometown nestled in an oversized armchair next to an old Victorian fireplace with her nose in an Agatha Christie novel or re-reading Little Women, hoping that Jo would somehow end up with Laurie this time. Samira always loved to write—especially poetry–but never actually dreamed of becoming a writer until she was an adult and an idea for a story captured her imagination and wouldn’t let go.

Samira is the New York Times bestselling author of Love, Hate, & Other Filters and the forthcoming, Internment(March 2019) and Mad, Bad, & Dangerous to Know (January 2020).

These days, Samira lives in Chicago, Illinois. When she’s not writing or reading, she can be found on her lifelong quest for the perfect pastry.
