Today Sheena Kamal, author of the new novel The Lost Ones joins me to talk about her unique journey from activist to actor to author, why she chose to write The Lost Ones as her debut novel, writing a novel when she didn’t know what she was doing and getting an education as she went, attending Thriller Con and “speed dating” agents, signing a deal, and much more.
Sheena Kamal was born in the Caribbean and immigrated to Canada as a child. She holds an HBA in political science from the University of Toronto, and was awarded a TD Canada Trust scholarship for community leadership and activism around the issue of homelessness. Kamal has also worked as a crime and investigative journalism researcher for the film and television industry. She lives in Vancouver, Canada, and enjoys beaches and Dark ‘n’ Stormys.
