Farah Afshari was born in Iran and began writing poetry from a very early age. As a young person, she experienced a revolution and a war as two major life events when living in Iran. These political and social upheavals greatly affected her views and opinion of the world around her and are the subjects of majority of poems in this book. Her poems have appeared in a considerable number of online social and literary journals, and this is her first collection of poems in English in the form of a book. She lives in London with her family.
