Naz Sohni Uppal is the Radio South Asia Friday hostess of a show called Naz at Night that runs from 10 p.m. to midnight on World FM 101.7.

Their website promises "only the quirky and esoteric need apply" for anyone interested in an interview with Naz.
She has asked to interview me, as the author of SpaceHive, a middle grade/young adult novel that takes place partially in India.
SpaceHive features Jason Anderson, the 12-year-old Canadian protagonist, with a South Asian Muslim young man named Aadab Ali and his Hindu girlfriend Iodine. Aadab speaks Urdu and some of that language is included in the novel.
It's a multicultural and multinational story with a moral that the world is a "global village" (thanks, Canadian philosopher/educator Marshall McLuhan).
If indeed the interview takes place as planned and is aired, I presume the listeners will be South Asian and other cultures with a world view, and will generate interest in SpaceHive, especially with my Indian and Pakistani readers, whom I have been trying to cultivate quite unsuccessfully.
I look forward to meeting Naz Sohni Uppal and chatting before the actual interview takes place.
I'll try to be "quirky and esoteric."
