Canadian actress and author ALBINA NAHAR was born in Bangladesh and raised in Bangalore, India and Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. She appreciates just how taboo it is for a woman raised in such a traditional culture to write about sex. She embraces that dichotomy and hopes it inspires her readers to express their intimate desires more openly. She speaks fluent Hindi, Bengali and Urdu. She holds dual degrees in Psychology and Theatre & Performing Arts from the University of Toronto.
She’s an accomplished model and performer, winning the People’s Choice Award in the Miss Universe Canada competition. Her roles in independent films have graced the big screen at film festivals worldwide. She’s appeared in Maxim Magazine, commercials, music videos, short films and television shows including HBO’s Lingerie. Currently she’s developing her own original film projects. After starring in the cult comedy Sweet Prudence and the Erotic Adventure of Bigfoot she was inspired to further develop the film’s characters in her first novella Seduced by the Saucermen. Her second book The Keyhole explores the taboo world of underground sex clubs from a woman’s perspective.
She will continue exploring the world of literary erotica because, “I’ve had my fair share of challenges with relationships and I understand the struggle as I’m a very passionate lover. I find Women think more creatively when it comes to sex and if you unleash her mind and senses, there is no such thing as boring sex and faking orgasms.”
