Deeba Zargarpur is an Afghan-Uzbek American. She credits her love of literature across various languages to her immigrant parents, whose eerie tales haunted her well into the night. If given the choice, Deeba would spend her days getting lost in spooky towns with nothing but a notebook and eye for adventure to guide her. Her debut YA novel, House of Yesterday, released from FSG BYR in fall 2022, and her debut MG novel, Farrah Noorzad and the Ring of Fate, is forthcoming from Labyrinth Road. Deeba is represented by Elana Roth Parker at Laura Dail Literary.
