Today I'd like to introduce you to Haji, a card-carrying member of Allison Lee's squad and a major character in my forthcoming YA fantasy debut, Dragons Walk Among Us. You can pre-order it here, available everywhere on July 19, 2021.
Where were you born?
I was born in Tacoma, but I was conceived in Pakistan. My dad and mom are both huge computer nerds. They landed top-notch programming jobs here in the US about six months before I was born.
What is your favorite color?
Gosh. Blue, I guess. Seattle Seahawks jersey blue.
What is your dream job?
Oh, that's an easy one. I want to be the color commentator for the Super Bowl. I know just about everything there is to know about every sport. Just don't ask me to play one.
What is your favorite food?
Honestly? I love a good PB&J.
How do you spend a typical Saturday night?
If there are sports on, I'm watching. Especially if it's one of the local teams. Sometimes I go dancing with my friends, Dalia and Allison. They're way more into it than I am, but I enjoy hanging out.
