First Draft with Sarah Enni

Dr. Somaiya Daud is the author of Mirage and its forthcoming sequel, Court of Lions (out August 4, 2020). Check out the cover reveal from Court of Lions and read an excerpt at Tor.com, as well as a conversation between Somaiya and I about how the theme of lost cultures functions in the series.

Somaiya has also answered questions on a February 28, 2020 mailbag episode, and was featured on the July 5, 2014 episode (the very first First Draft episode ever).
