Afsaneh Hojabri


I was born and raised in Shiraz, Iran and emigrated to Canada in 1989. I completed my MA degree in anthropology from York University in Toronto and, for the past 15 years, have worked as a freelance researcher, a project coordinator, a trainer and a writer. I am passionate about writing, blogging and cooking, and I live in a house on West Island in Montreal’s suburbs with my husband, our dog, and a mind full of memories. A Sip, A Bite, A Mouthful is my first book-length publication.
