Hey there everyone; Paul here today. Sorry to have been absent so much lately. I’d like to send my sincerest thanks to Sher, Angie, and Lauri for picking up the slack. I had hoped to have a bit more free time this semester as time went on, but it appears it is not to be. The two classes I’m taking are much more time intensive than last semester so, for now, I’ll post when I can and thank my lucky stars I have such great, supportive blog partners. Now, let’s get on with the My Friend Suhana Book Blast shall we?

About the Authors: Shaila Abdullah & Aanyah Abdullah
|Shaila & Aanyah Abdullah|
Shaila Abdullah is an author and designer based in Austin, Texas. She is the author of two award-winning books: Saffron Dreams and Beyond the Cayenne Wall. The author has received several awards for her work including the Golden Quill Award, Norumbega Jury Prize for Outstanding Fiction, Patras Bukhari Award for English Language, Reader Views Award, Written Art Award, and a grant from Hobson Foundation. My Friend Suhana is Shaila’s first children’s book. In her free time, Shaila loves to run around with her children–Aanyah and Aaliyana. Aanyah Abdullah is a creative and compassionate 10-year-old, who is drawn to children born with physical and mental disabilities. When she was in second grade, Aanyah along with her mother Shaila, started volunteering out at a local community center where they helped assist special needs children. Later Aanyah wrote an essay about her friendship with a girl in the class who had cerebral palsy. That essay is the inspiration behind My Friend Suhana. Aanyah dreams of establishing a special school for children with disabilities one day. She is known to always stand up for what is right and is-–in her parents’ and teachers’ eyes––a perfect role model for her baby sister.
