Mariam is a graduate of the University College of London Medical School and currently works as a Family doctor. She lives in San Diego, CA with her husband and three young musical and outer-space-loving kids. She says “I have always had a passion writing children’s books and poems but there never seems to be enough time in the day!”
After having her 3 curious babies, Mariam sadly suffered a stillbirth last year. This was at the same time as the COVID pandemic. She felt closer to her children, more than ever before, soshe finally fulfilled her ]dream.
Her middle child, Joseph, has a big love and talent for music and space! The book, Up, Up, You Go Jo! was inspired by Joseph and dedicated to all children whose love for music and space is out of this world.
Mariam believes a child’s determination and curiosity needs to be constantly met and more with self questioning beyond just reading and understanding the words.
