AUTHOR OF the Ember in the Ashes series and Star Wars: From a Certain Point of View
Bio: Sabaa Tahir spent her childhood in the Mojave Desert, where she didn’t have cable and thus chose to entertain herself with books and radio. Sabaa's parents assured her that she wanted to become a doctor, but a brief stint working in a hospital changed her mind. She left the desert for university at 17, graduated from UCLA a few years later, and went to work for The Washington Post directly after. Five years later, Sabaa left the Post and started working on a book. If she could be anything, she’d be a space explorer, but a cool one, like Jean-Luc Picard.
