About Me

Assalamu alaykum – peace be upon you.

My name is Safiya. I live with my husband in the land that is home to Hogwarts and where the unicorn is the national animal – Scotland. I am passionate about reading, writing, cats and tea.

Welcome to my blog where I post book reviews and I share my creative writing including poems and short stories. I also throw in the occasional thought piece and anything else I feel the need to write about. I’m in my natural habitat when I’m reading a book, drinking tea with a cat on my lap or putting my thoughts down on paper. I’m an aspiring author, currently working on my first novel and you can see what it is about here.

To sum up; this is a place of bookworming, writing and dreaming.

“You don’t write because you want to say something, you write because you have something to say.” F. Scott Fitzgerald.

  1. Very well expressed. I myself – raised Jewish – are more than a little interested in listening to what insights you have to share on your enduring Muslim love and beliefs. I do get it. Keep up the excellent and necessary work of love you are involved in.
