Aliya Anjum


My pen is my passion and I write to educate, provoke thought, enthrall and amuse.

I have been writing since the age of 17 when I got published in the largest selling daily of Pakistan. I have written over a wide range of topics including op-eds, book reviews, travelogues, socio-economic write-ups and economic policy critiques.

I also teach part time in an MBA program which is my second favorite activity after writing. I hold a masters degree from US and I attended business school in Pakistan for my undergraduate degree.

Before I discovered e-books I was an unpublished National Prize winning author of 3 books. I wrote them to find challenge in boring work.

I am here as an author and as a reader.

Peace be upon you!

    Very thorough and surprisingly easy to follow. I followed it and managed to create my own e-book in an hour, which I successfully uploaded without any error.
