Ayaan Mohamud


Ayaan is a Somali writer, medical editor, and ex-doctor. Though she seems like the scientific type, you’ll usually find her with her head in the clouds.

Ayaan is keen to write authentic and uplifting stories featuring Muslim and Somali characters because she believes every child deserves to see themselves as a protagonist. She lives in London with her family and can usually be found either writing or complaining about writing. When she isn’t doing either of those things, you may find her simply annoying her sisters or daydreaming. Her debut contemporary YA novel You Think You Know Me was published in 2023. Her second YA novel, The Thread That Connects Us, is publishing July 2024.
