SHEENA KAMAL holds an HBA in Political Science from the University of Toronto, and was awarded a TD Canada Trust scholarship for community leadership and activism around the issue of homelessness.

Her bestselling debut novel The Lost Ones won her a 2018 Kobo Emerging Writer Prize, a Strand Magazine Critics Award and Macavity Award for Best First Novel. The sequel It All Falls Down is now available and has been called “a stunning, emotionally resonant thriller” in its Kirkus starred review.

Her next thriller in the Nora Watts crime series is expected out fall 2019, and her first YA novel Fight Like A Girl will drop in 2020.

Prior to writing novels, Kamal worked as a crime and investigative journalism researcher for the film and television industry--among other rather unsavoury professions. 

She is a drinker of wine, lover of fake news and enemy of the word 'unputdownable'. You are not Atlas. At some point you must put it down.
