Huda Al-Marashi is the Iraqi-American author of "First Comes Marriage: My Not-So-Typical American Love Story", a book the Washington Post called"a charming, funny, heartbreaking memoir of faith, family, and the journey to love. If Jane Austen had grown up as a first-gen daughter of Iraqi parents in the 1990s, she might have written this.”


Excerpts from this memoir have also been anthologized in Love Inshallah: The Secret Love Lives of Muslim American Women, Becoming: What Makes a Woman, and Beyond Belief: The Secret Lives of Women and Extreme Religion.

Her other writing has appeared in the Washington Post, the LA Times, al Jazeera, VIDA Review, Refinery 29, The Rumpus, The Offing and elsewhere. She is the recipient of a Cuyahoga County Creative Workforce Fellowship and an Aspen Summer Words Emerging Writer Fellowship.


Huda currently resides in California with her husband and three children. Visit her at www.hudaalmarashi.com.
