My name is Sahera Patel and I am a forty year old Muslim, ex-primary teacher from West Yorkshire. Married with two children, I live a happy, relatively busy life Alhumdulillah. I studied in Manchester many years ago, thoroughly enjoying my degree in English. For many years my passion to write remained dormant as I fell in to the role of an employee, a wife, a mother and a dutiful daughter-in-law. However, my awakening came when I decided to use some of the precious little free time I had to begin an autobiography. As the first words landed on the screen, the casual decision to write a little something became an ambitious determination to complete an actual book that if God wills, will soon be on the virtual shelves of Amazon.
