I am a freelance writer and editor with over eighteen years of experience, working for prominent and successful international publishers and packagers. I specialize in writing for children and parents and about food!

I have written a number of books for children, many of which are novelty books (books with pop-ups, tabs, touch-and-feel elements or other interactive parts). I have also created content for websites and smartphone apps.

I am currently writing parenting pieces for the GGMG Magazine and blog as a staff writer (the GGMG is a non-profit for moms with young children with over 4,ooo members). I also wrote a number of pieces for blog posts for the Little Lane parenting blog whilst it was still in operation.

My iPhone/iPad app guide to Indian restaurant dining, Indian Menu Interpreter* is sadly no longer available. I am happy to consider more traditional uses for the text from the app, which is essentially a glossary of Indian restaurant food and ingredients.

Some of the companies I have worked with include, Orchard Books, Macmillan Children’s Books, Dorling Kindersley, Pinwheel Limited, Green Android, Leapfrog, Renegade Girls Tinkering Club. Feel free to contact me at info@shaheenbilgrami dot com if you have any questions!
