Rebecca Zahabi is a mixed-race writer (a third British, a third French and a third Iranian, if the mix is of interest to you). She started writing in her home village in France at age 12 - a massive epic where women were knights and men were she-witches which set out to revolutionise feminism.
Since, she learnt how to actually write, and has slightly re-jigged her expectations of what she can achieve with a keyboard and a blank page. The plan of taking over the world, however, has not changed.
After honing in her craft in a variety of genres - playwriting, short stories, an attempt at Icelandic sagas - she hopes to write novels that can make a difference. She is currently working on more 'political fantasy', an ambitious trilogy blending magic and structural violence.
