Sidra is an attorney (immigration, environmental, energy), scientist, and writer of both fiction and non.

Why law? I wanted to do more good in the world and I didn't have the patience for a medical degree. Law seemed like a great tool for my toolkit. Human systems are just interesting me more and more these days, over physical ones. What can I say? I follow my obsessions.

Why science? Because I want to understand the world around me. Physics is cool. Chemistry is cool. Math is cool. It's all great.

Why write? Because. Just, because. I write feminist and political commentary on my blog, and track diseases, since just because I said I didn't have the patience for a medical degree doesn't mean I don't find infectious diseases incredibly INTERESTING. I write fiction, generally science fiction and fantasy, and appeared in the 2005 volume of the Writers of the Future anthology. Law school (2004-2007) and now law practice, obviously cuts pretty deeply into my writing time, but I did my best (and still do) to stay tantrum-free over it.
