About

Natasha Khan Kazi is the author and illustrator of Moon’s Ramadan (Versify/HarperCollins, 2023). She was born in Bangladesh and immigrated to the U.S. when she was 5 years old. Picture books were Natasha’s introduction to English and western culture and she always dreamed of sharing her own stories one day. 

She has a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Pittsburgh and over 14 years of experience in storytelling, social media, and online community building. Combining her passion for education and art, she launched Islamimommy, a platform for Islamic education through arts and crafts. Drawing from her unique Bangladeshi Muslim immigrant experience, Natasha’s creative work is rooted in empathy, diversity, and childhood joy. 

She currently lives in Los Angeles with her family of picture book readers.

Natasha is represented by Tanusri Prasanna at DeFiore and Company.
