Nagwa has been telling stories for as long as she remembers. At bedtime, the two sisters would have a tradition of making up or adding to the adventures of the ladybird series “Peter and Jane”, which then led to creating and telling original stories. It was only natural, perhaps, that she would graduate into writing stories later on.
Nagwa Malik, born in Gumel, Nigeria and having spent her childhood between the UK and Nigeria, shifted to Pakistan her home country, still a young child where she is now a Language and Communication Skills Instructor, working mainly with professionals. Before that she used to teach French and Script-writing at reputed Schools and Universities. She is a double Masters' degree holder (French and Script-writing respectively) having obtained the second Master’s degree from City University, London with honours. Her Master’s in French was obtained from the University of the Punjab in which she passed as a position holder aged 20.
Nagwa has been writing since she was 11 and published her first novel at the age of 15 which was a success. She has written a total of 40 plus novels but has been focused-until now- on her studies and later her career as a writer/producer and teacher putting her publications on hold. Apart from that she has written articles for Newspapers like The News International.
Now that the sober account of her has been done with, a little bit about the person: Nagwa considers life to be lived as a traveller and is an ambivert who loves nature, animals, travelling, languages (she has a flair for grasping new languages very quickly) and, last but not least, her solitude. When she is not writing, she rejuvenates herself by watching her favourite K, J, C and Thai dramas...Korean being her favourite as they were what "brought back the spark" in her life, especially creative.
