Shameez Patel Papathanasiou

Author

Shameez was born and raised in South Africa. She lives there with her husband, child and two cats named Turbo and Charger.

She considers herself a professional binge-watcher and fangirl. Don’t be surprised to bump into her dressed as a Hobbit or Lady Loki. Should you need anything from her, offer a choc-chip cookie and her heart is yours forever.

Shameez fell in love with fiction at a young age. Her parents fondly recall receiving her first handwritten story before the age of ten, titled The Treasures of Zombie Island, which surprisingly featured no zombies at all. She has been writing ever since.

The Selene Trilogy, her fantasy debut, is available and was published by Flame Tree Press. Her debut rom-com, Playing Flirty will be published by Forever in 2024.
