Sonia Nadina Haynes interviews the author of WHO KNOWS WHERE BUTTERFLIES DIE.

Affected by war and revolution, and through extensive travel, Pasha Parvaneh Hashemi has come across many people escaping from oppressive, tyrant rulers. These ordinary people - with extraordinary horror stories of their lives under autocratic regimes and their brave escape from their motherland in search of freedom and peace - inspired the author to gather their true tales into this book, Who Knows Where Butterflies Die; which is written as an allegory to protect the identity of its characters.

Pasha Parvaneh Hashemi holds a Ph.D. in Information Technology Education and Literature; a Post Master’s degree in Pedagogy Education; as well as degrees in Fine Arts and Graphic and Communications Design. 

She is the founder and chair of a non-profit literature club in British Columbia, Canada that promotes language, creative writing and artistry.

Who Knows Where Butterflies Die is available in print in major bookstores in North America and in downloadable digital in English and Persian online all over the world. It will soon be available in Spanish and audio.
