How do you pronounce your name?
Probably a lot easier than you think! Huff-suh (the suh sounds like duh!) and Fy-zull.
What does it mean?
Hafsah is Arabic for ‘little lioness’. Pretty fab, if I do say so myself.
Where are you from?
I was born in sunny Miami, Florida and raised in sunny Los Angeles, California.
When can I read your book?
Now! WE HUNT THE FLAME released on May 14th, 2019.
Is it going to be a series?
Yes! It is currently planned to be a two-book series.
How did you become a published author?
Through lots and lots of work, and I’m not even published yet. There’s still so much work to be done!
WE HUNT THE FLAME was my fifth manuscript, and I worked on it for over four years before I queried agents. I was lucky enough to receive multiple offers of representation, and once I signed with my agent, we edited the manuscript for almost two months before going out on submission to editors.
Do you have a degree in writing?
I do not! And I’m a firm believer that anything is possible with enough willpower and work. Need more proof of this? I started and currently run a web design business, using knowledge I learned (and continue to learn) myself.
