Priyanka Taslim is a writer represented by Quressa Robinson of Folio Literary Management. Priyanka writes swoony young adult and adult novels starring the Bengali characters she wishes she’d seen growing up.
When she isn’t writing, she’s teaching, reading, otherwise geeking out, or waxing lyrical about her dapper tuxedo cat, Loki.
Priyanka Taslim is a writer, teacher, and lifelong New Jersey resident.
Having grown up in a bustling Bangladeshi diaspora community, surrounded by her mother’s entire clan and many aunties of no relation, her writing often features families, communities, and all the drama therein.
Currently, Priyanka teaches by day and tells all kinds of stories about Bangladeshi characters by night. Her writing usually stars spunky Bengali heroines finding their place in the world…and a little swoony romance, too.
Her debut young adult novel, THE LOVE MATCH, released from Salaam Reads, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, January 2023. You can BUY now and join her mailing list for important updates. Get a SIGNED/PERSONALIZED copy with swag from Watchung Booksellers or Books of Wonder (intl available)!
