About the author

Leena Althekair is a Saudi teen author, born in Jeddah. Her passion for writing bloomed when she was nine, and had only grown stronger as the days wore on.

​She has spoken at the National Cultural Forum and gave multiple speeches at her school, as well as participated in many extracurricular activities outside campus.

She likes to spend her time fangirling by day and reading books at night. Sometimes she doesn't get any sleep, but that's okay because words on dry wood give her all the sleep she needs. (No, not really.)

She values family time a lot (not the babysitting her cousins part) and makes time for her friends (who are her source of inspiration ... among other stuff.)

She currently lives with her parents, grandma, and two sisters (whom she has to regularly babysit). Maybe, if you're quiet enough, you'll catch her under a duvet, binge-watching Full House on a regular basis.

Her debut novel, FORESHADOW, is published, and her lifelong dream - as short as her life is - has become a reality.
