A Maths teacher by day and a YA author by night, Muhammad graduated from King’s College London with a degree in Engineering before deciding it’d be more fun to work with supercool teenagers than seriously geeky engineers.
When not writing, creating mathematical bunting, narrating creepypastas, Muhammad can be found spying on Sheba: his pet rabbit, who might just be plotting to take over the world.
I Am Thunder: Fifteen-year-old Muzna Saleem is passionate about writing and dreams of becoming a novelist. There’s just one problem – her super-controlling parents have already planned her life out for her:
Step 1) Get educated
Step 2) Qualify as a doctor
Step 3) Marry a cousin from Pakistan. Oh, and boyfriends are totally haram.
No one is more surprised than humble Muzna when high school hottie, Arif Malik, takes an interest in her. But Arif and his brother are angry at the West for demonizing Islam and hiding a terrible secret. As Arif begins to lead Muzna down a dark path, she faces a terrible choice: keep quiet and betray her beliefs, or speak up and betray her heart?
