Nagwa Malik


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 (Basic) to graduates and Script-writing to Postgraduates. 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.

Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
I have always loved mysteries, and having been a literature student, I got to sample some of the best written books that were not mysteries. So, I have my all time favourites: Agatha Christie and Enid Blyton, and writers like Robert Ludlum and Michael Connelly, and then there's Margret Atwood and Pascal.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read thrillers and cozy mysteries.

    I liked it. I love mysteries and sometimes the most compelling story is one that is told baldly. Without the embellishments. It has a beauty of its own, such a technique.
  • Odd Whitefeather on June 28, 2016

    Been trying to post my review for quite sometime but for some odd reason it wasn't going through. I liked the fact that it moved away from the regular cliches. And I love the setting!
  • The Horror Approaches on June 28, 2016

    I enjoyed every word! EVERY WORD!!!! It was hilarious, natural, true, and just a treat.
