Umair Mirxa lives and writes in Karachi, Pakistan. His first published story, ‘Awareness’, appeared on Spillwords Press. ‘Anonymous’ in Zombie Pirate Publishing’s anthology, ‘Flash Fiction Addiction’, is his first story in print.
The publication of these stories is the realization of a lifelong dream he first saw as a kid after reading ‘Adventures of a Wishing-Chair’ by Enid Blyton. The early dream, a casual hope of one day telling stories to the world himself, became a goal when his mother bought him the two-volume set, ‘Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories’ by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and it had transformed into a burning ambition by the time he’d finished reading ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings’ by J.R.R. Tolkien.
To date, his stories have been published/accepted for publication in various anthologies by publishers including Zombie Pirate Publishing, Blood Song Books, Black Hare Press, Iron Faerie Publishing, and Fantasia Divinity Magazine & Publishing.
He remains a massive Tolkien fan, loves everything to do with mythology, fantasy, and history, and wishes with all his heart that dragons were real. When he’s not writing, he enjoys reading novels and comic books, playing video games, listening to music, and watching movies, TV shows, and football as an Arsenal FC fan.
