Born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, Nora immigrated to the US and celebrated her second birthday in Long Island, NY. Shortly after, her family packed up and moved to Buena Park, California, which is where she considers to be her hometown. Nora was inspired to write by her sixth-grade teacher, Mr. Andy O. who helped her publish her first book, a book of poetry at age eleven. She has since written many books over the years, delving into YA fiction and children's books. Nora works as a professional editor and freelance illustrator. In her spare time, she writes, cooks, and reads. She currently resides in the Alamo region of Texas with her husband and their three-year-old cat, Caspian.
