Farah Naz Rishi (she/they) is a Pakistani American Muslim writer and voice actor, but in another life she's worked stints as a lawyer, a video game journalist, and an editorial assistant. She received her BA in English from Bryn Mawr College, her JD from Lewis & Clark Law School, and her love of weaving stories from the Odyssey Writing Workshop. When she's not writing, she's probably hanging out with video game characters. She is the author of I Hope You Get This Message and It All Comes Back to You. You can find her at home in Philadelphia or on Twitter/Instagram at @farahnazrishi.
