Details

Hi my name is Dr Attiya Khan - I am a mother of three and work as a GP in East London. I have been part of critique groups for around five years and hold an MA in Modern Literature from Birkbeck, where I graduated with merit. I was selected to be part of the David Higham s Open day for underrepresented writers, and was also on the longlist for Undiscovered Voices 2020. Ten Steps To Us is my debut book and has been well received by critics and readers alike with a 4.2 star rating on Goodreads. It reached number 3 in the UK YA chart for Islamic fiction. 

It has also received interest in being adapted for TV.
