Tasneem Sara

Just like my Zodiac, I am a carefree, adventurous and fun-loving person with a great taste for both intense reading and spicy food. In plain and simple words, I am an author by heart, mind and soul. I am an author by heart. I write for myself and also for those who would want to enjoy simple joys of life. Words-that’s one thing that keep me going. Whenever I feel under the weather, I pick up a pen and paper, and ventilate my emotions. I am a bubbly, lively person, someone you might miss on dinner parties, supper evenings and camp fire gatherings. Just like I am passionate about my profession, I am equally passionate about the people I love. That includes my parents, my husband, my darling sister and all my friends who think I am worth their friendship.
