Zoë Ferraris moved to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia in the aftermath of the first Gulf War to live with her then-husband and his extended family of Saudi-Palestinian Bedouins, who had never welcomed an American into their lives before. She lived in a very devout neighborhood where she was not allowed to leave the house without a male escort and where she was expected to veil herself at all times. This experience provided the basis for her first three novels, all mystery-thrillers set in Saudi Arabia.
Her first novel, Finding Nouf, introduces Nayir Sharqi, a pious Saudi Muslim and a desert guide who sets out to solve a few mysteries—one of them being how to find a wife in a country that makes it difficult to talk to women, let alone date them. Finding Nouf won the LA Times Book Award and an ALA Alex Award. The follow-up books in the series, City of Veils and Kingdom of Strangers, were international bestsellers. Rights to the books have sold in over 40 countries. Publishers Weekly says of her writing: “beautifully crafted…with intelligence, patience, and meticulous detail, Ferraris evokes a complex culture profoundly ambivalent about female power.”
Zoë grew up as an army brat. Born in Fort Sill, Oklahoma, she traveled all over the country and eventually landed at the Presidio of San Francisco, where she lives today. The former military base has been transformed into a national park, and her apartment – former major’s quarters – overlooks the Golden Gate Bridge. She blogs about the Presidio and leads the community’s Town Hall meetings, a tradition left over from the army days.
Zoë holds an MFA in Fiction from Columbia University. She is currently finishing up a middle-grade children’s fantasy series for Crown Books for Young Readers. The first book in the series, The Hunt for the Pyxis, will be released in Summer of 2015.
