Shireen Jeejeebhoy mayn't have been born in Toronto, but she has fully immersed herself in its fractious and neighbourly life to the point that she uses it as a character in many of her books.
Jeejeebhoy received a B.Sc. in psychology from the University of Toronto. Her first book "Lifeliner: The Judy Taylor Story" won the 2008 Reader Views Reviewers Choice Award for best biography. Her first novel, "She" was shortlisted for The Word Guild Awards, Novel-Futuristic Category. Through Iguana Books, she recently published "Concussion Is Brain Injury," a true life memoir of her recovery from a "mild" traumatic brain injury. Jeejeebhoy is working diligently on her next two novels. When she is not writing, reading, taking photographs, she hunts for good coffee and sensational chocolate.
