Faizan Aslam Soofi: A Rising Star in Pakistanâ€™s World of Literature
Faizan is currently a student of 7thÂ grade atÂ AitchisonÂ College, Lahore and at the age of eight he started writing short stories and poems, some of which have been printed in the â€˜Dawnâ€™. This eventually led to his first novellaÂ â€˜Howlâ€™, which was published last year by Book Home Publishers. He got a positive feedback which became the impetus to write a novel â€˜Instrumental Queensâ€™.Â ThisÂ was launched recently at a ceremony in Islamabad attended by numerous renowned personalities as well as many students and teachers.
This book is the first of five successive books that make up Faizanâ€™sÂ â€˜Quotos Instrumentsâ€™, a series set in an imaginary world. The second partÂ â€˜Instrumental Kingsâ€™Â will be published next year. He is a great fan ofÂ Â Harry Potter; Hunger Games, Divergent, Percy Jackson etc. which thereby are his source of inspiration.
He is also exploring different genres of writing, one of which is plays and has already written a few.
