Annabel Kantaria is the author of Coming Home – a novel of dark family secrets and lies that has seen her compared to Liane Moriarty and Jodi Picoult. She is in the process of writing her second novel, a mystery about an elderly woman who goes missing during a family holiday.
Kantaria’s career as an author began in 2013, when she won the inaugural Montegrappa First Fiction at the Emirates Airline Festival of Literature. Her work caught the critical eye of top London agent Luigi Bonomi and she went on to secure a three-book contract with Harlequin MIRA.
Kantaria has lived in Dubai with her husband since 1998 and has two children. A British-trained editor and journalist, formerly the editor of Emirates Woman magazine, she has written prolifically for publications in the UK and across the Middle East and currently works as The Telegraph’s Dubai-based ‘Expat’ blogger and as a columnist for Stylist Arabia.
