Muti’ah grew up in Lagos, Nigeria and attended the country’s premier university, the University of Ibadan. She claims Ibadan as the hometown of her heart.
A self-proclaimed bibliophile who reads everything except fantasy and paranormal, Muti’ah started writing on her high school Press Club bulletin board. That teenager also penned several hand-written stories in lined notebooks, invariably with American high school themes and foreign-named characters.
A licensed physician who currently practices in Saudi Arabia, her first two books were published in Nigeria. Faltering Steps is a YA novella about a young girl finding herself in the context of a better understanding and practice of Islaam. Umm’Abdillaah; For the Fertility-challenged Muslim Woman is a motivational self-help book for Muslimahs living with the challenges of subfertility.
When she is not reading, writing or doctoring, Muti’ah can be found watching documentaries on historical and social justice issues, exploring physical bookshops with her 3 children or sleeping. She also enjoys building elaborate fantasies of what her life would be like if she didn’t have to work.
In many ways, Muti’ah is the reserved bookworm from her adolescence. She is still figuring out these new fang’d means of human connectedness called Social Media. She can be reached via – email@example.com
