About Farah

IMG_7280

After a childhood raised on Bollywood, Monty Python, and Jane Austen, Farah Heron wove complicated story arcs and uplifting happily ever afters in her daydreams while pursuing careers in human resources and psychology. She started writing those stories down a few years ago, and never looked back. She writes romantic comedies and women’s fiction full of huge South Asian families, delectable food, and most importantly, brown people falling stupidly in love. She lives in Toronto with her husband, two children, and a rabbit named Strawberry. She recently adopted two cats, who are now in charge.

Farah’s debut, The Chai Factor was named one of the summer’s best books The Globe and Mail, and has been praised in Book Riot, Smart Bitches Trashy Books, Bustle and more. Her next release is Accidentally Engaged, out March 2nd 2021, published by Forever/Grand Central Books. Her YA debut, Tahira in Bloom, will be out in late 2021 by Skyscape.

Farah is represented by Rachel Brooks at Bookends Literary.
