I am Fariba Kalhor and I was born in Tehran, Iran in 1961. I have received MA in Education from Tehran University and MA in Persian language and literature from Azad University. Before beginning my writing career, I was educator in two children’s library. At the age of 22, I started to work in Roshd Children’s magazine as a writer. After 8 years, I was invited by Soroush Publishing Company to launch a children’s magazine along with Mostafa Rahmandoost (one of the most famous poets in Iran). That Magazine eventually became what is now known as Soroush e Koodakan. Between 1991 and 2004 I was the editor-in-chief of the magazine along with Mr. Rahmandoost. Most of my stories are in fantasy genre. In 1991 I wrote Iran’s first fantasy novel for Yonge adult called Today my Chelchele.
