Parisa Akhbari

Parisa is a mental health therapist and writer from Seattle, Washington. Her favorite Catholic school memory is of playing a nun in her school’s production of The Sound of Music, and inadvertently developing crushes on several of the other nuns. When not writing or therapizing, she can be found trying to replicate her grandmother’s drool-worthy Persian recipes, riding ferries around the Puget Sound, and dancing around the kitchen with her wife and dogs. Parisa's writing is represented by Quressa Robinson of Folio Literary Management, and her debut YA novel is out now through Dial/Penguin Random House.
