Waheed Rabbani was born in India, close to Delhi, and was introduced to Victorian and other English novels, at a very young age, in his father’s library. Most of the large number of volumes had been purchased by his father at ‘garage sales’ held, by departing British civil service officers, in the last days of the Raj.
Waheed attended St.Patrick’s High School in Karachi, Pakistan. He graduated from Loughborough University, Leics., England, and received a Master’s degree from Concordia University, Montreal, Canada. While an engineer by profession, Waheed’s other love is reading and writing English literature, which led him to obtain a Certificate in Creative Writing from McMaster University and start on his fiction writing journey.
Waheed’s first historical fiction novel, The Azadi Trilogy, Book I: Doctor Margaret’s Sea Chest, was published, by Youwriteon-Legend Press, UK. It’s available at most on-line Bookstores. Book II TBA soon.
Waheed is also a book-reviewer for the HNR.
