BiographyHistory

Of Punjabi background, Mena Abdullah spent her early years on her parents' sheep property before she attended Sydney Girls High. She has travelled widely in Europe and the South Pacific, and has worked for the CSIRO.

Her writing has been published variously in the Bulletin, Coast to Coast and Quadrant. Abdullah's stories have been described as examples of the craft of short fiction at its traditional best and are identifiable precursors to later publications in Australia by writers of Moslem faith.
