Diversity, romance, and the juggle of motherhood with author Halima Khatun
Despite working as a professional wordsmith – Halima is a broadcast journalist having worked with the BBC and ITV.
Since she was a child, she knew that words would be her thing. With a lifelong passion for writing, Halima wrote her first novel – a coming-of-age children’s story – at the age of 12. It was politely turned down by all the major publishing houses. However, proving that writing was indeed her forte, Halima went on to study English and Journalism and was one of just four people in the UK to be granted a BBC scholarship during her postgraduate studies.
Along with being a PR consultant,Halima also blogs on lifestyle, food, travel, and parenthood on halimabobs.com.
This is where she also shares updates on her novels, her first, The Secret Diary of an Arranged Marriage came out in 2020 and her latest book, the second of the series, The Secret Life of a Bengali Bridezilla was released in early 2021.
