Biography's Source:

Born into an Iranian literary family, Farnoosh Moshiri received her Master's degree in drama from the University of Iowa in 1979, then returned to Iran. In 1983 she was one of a group of actors and playwrights who were ordered to sign an agreement to obey the dictates of the new regime. They refused. Moshiri went underground, eventually escaping with her infant son to Afghanistan, then to India where she wrote in a closet, the only place she could find privacy in the one-room flat she shared with other refugees. She has lived in Houston since 1987 and is a graduate of the University of Houston's creative writing program. Currently, she teaches at Montgomery College in Houston.
