About Uzma Jalaluddin
Uzma Jalaluddin is a writer and high school teacher in Ontario, Canada.
She is the author of 'Samosas and Maple Syrup,' a regular column in the Toronto Star, Canada's largest daily newspaper. She named her column 'Samosas and Maple Syrup' because as a Canadian of South Asian descent, she has a diverse perspective on parenting, family, culture, and other things that make her laugh.
Uzma is currently working on her first novel, a romantic comedy set in a tight-knit Muslim community. She is represented by Ann Collette of the Rees Literary Agency.
