  • “The most important thing that I can say is to feel confident enough to keep pitching. It's amazing if you've got the ability to get to a literary agent, pitch to them, and speak to them.”
  • “90% of writing a novel is not that spark of creativity”
  • “The niqab, which is what I'm wearing at the moment is something that is not required for Muslim women. So for me, it's that certain people choose to earn good deeds by giving extra charity or by, you know, doing extra physical worship, and I choose to do this.”
  • “Just find a set of people who are doing the same sort of thing that you are perhaps in the same genre”
  • “Ramadan is almost an escape from the rest of the year, it's so much more peaceful.”
