Mahtab Narsimhan

Mahtab's name, in Persian, means moonlight. She has had four careers in her lifetime. Writing is her fifth and favourite.
While training to be a general manager of a hotel, she’s made hundreds of beds, cleaned way too many bathrooms, and served meals at restaurants. During kitchen training, she peeled and chopped a twenty-kilogram (forty-four lbs) bag of onions in one day, and cried throughout.
As a recruiter in the IT industry Mahtab thought SOAP was something you washed your face with, and ORACLE was the kind lady from the Matrix movies. She’s come a long way since then!
Mahtab immigrated to Canada in 1997 and started writing in 2004. Her debut novel, THE THIRD EYE won the Silver Birch Fiction Award in 2009 and she hasn’t looked back since. Mahtab is deeply committed to representing diversity in her stories.
