Ayisha Malik is a British Muslim, lifelong Londoner, and debut novelist. She read English Literature at Kingston University and went on to complete an MA in Creative Writing (though told most of her family it was an MA in English Literature – Creative Writing is not a subject, after all.) She has spent various spells teaching, photocopying, volunteering and being a publicist. Now, when she isn’t searching for a jar of Nutella in her cupboards, she divides her time between writing, being an editor, and studying. Her first novel Sofia Khan Is Not Obliged is published as an ebook on 3rd September 2015 and in paperback in January 2016.
