Priyanka Taslim
Priyanka Taslim

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 9th grade English by day and tells all kinds of stories about Bangladeshi characters by night. Her writing usually stars spunky Bangladeshi heroines finding their place in the world…and a little swoony romance, too. THE LOVE MATCH, out in summer 2022 from Salaam Reads, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, is her debut YA novel.
