Shabana, who is a Canadian, spent her early years in various countries and now lives with her husband, two sons and three birds in Singapore. 

She has a Master’s degree in Education from Newfoundland and a Master’s in Business Administration from Windsor, Canada. 

She worked for a telecommunications company in Canada and Singapore for thirteen years as a marketing and business development professional. She’s currently working as a Director at a consulting firm, and serving as the PTA Room Parent Coordinator at her sons’ school. She recently became a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators - The international professional organization for writers and illustrators of children’s literature.

She loves to read both fiction and non-fiction books. Her kids are also avid readers and love performing experiments and finding out how things work. She conducts weekly experiments with them based on their interest and level of understanding. 

It was her boys’ curiosity and endless questions that led her to write her first book, Why is the Sky Blue?   

She plans to write a series of non-fiction books on thought-provoking and interesting topics for children.
