Born in 1970 in Durban, Sumayya Lee spent part of her childhood in the UK. At fifteen, under the tutelage of an inspirational English teacher, Lee found her calling, yet had no idea how long it would be before her dream of being a writer would be realised.

Lee married at twenty and studied to be a Montessori Directress during this time. Two children later, she was divorced and seeking new direction. She did a Cambridge Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language and went on to work with adults.

She is now re-married and lives in London with her husband, two children and their cat.  She is the author of The Story of Maha and Maha, Ever After and is currently working on her third (non-Maha) novel.
