“Author Ausma Zehanat Khan aims to tackle stereotypes about Muslims in popular culture. And she’s chosen an unlikely vehicle of change: the mystery novel.
She’s taken an equally unexpected route to writing, starting out as a lawyer specialising in human rights law, and then serving as editor of a groundbreaking fashion and lifestyle magazine, Muslim Girl.
Her new book is called The Language of Secrets. It’s the second in a series of mystery novels featuring a Muslim-Canadian detective as a lead character.”
