My name is Shahnaz. I’m a writer, mother, dreamer, doer.

Hi! I’m a Bolivian-Iranian-Swiss mutt whose love of stories comes from my mother putting me to sleep with Greek and Roman myths, and my brother introducing me to fantasy – and Dungeons and Dragons. I live on an old farm in rural Portugal that my husband and I are renovating into an ecotourism project, Casa Beatrix, and I am the proud (if slightly sleep deprived) mother of a toddler, with baby #2 due in April 2024. 

When I’m not writing, I am most likely in the vegetable garden, playing with our fluffy donkeys, lost in a book, in the saddle, or mushroom hunting (except when paid work calls, of course).
