Sabaa Tahir

Sabaa Tahir

Sabaa Tahir was born in London but grew up in California’s Mojave Desert at an 18-room motel. During a summer internship at The Washington Post, she wrote an Outlook piece on arranged marriage from her perspective as a South Asian. Little did she know that this would result in an offer of a reality TV show on MTV, a dozen marriage proposals, and one phone call that turned out to be from her future husband. After graduating from UCLA, Sabaa accepted a full-time position as an editor on the foreign desk at The Post. Three summers later, in 2007, she came up with the concept for An Ember in the Ashes. Sabaa currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband and children. An Ember in the Ashes is her first book.
