First Draft with Sarah Enni

Somaiya Daud, debut author of YA sci-fi book MIRAGE, was the very first author I ever interviewed for First Draft Podcast. We had a lot to catch up on since then, so listen now to hear about Somaiya’s bumpy path to publication, the way race plays into our concepts of the future and, of course, Star Wars!
