Nadya’s greatest inspiration is her father, Dr. Arshad Malik, and his compilations of beautiful Urdu poetry. Her debut novel, Kolachi dreams, has been included in the curriculum/course readings for an anthropology course on ‘Contemporary Pakistan’ in the University of Texas, at Austin, U.S.A.
Nadya is a life-long learner and an educationalist. She is an idealist and dreams of a more peaceful and tolerant world for everyone. Her dreams and vision are fuelled by her diverse reading and she derives her inspiration from authors across the globe. She loves learning about art, history, different cultures and exploring the world.
