Profile Information

Assalamu alaykum wa rahmatullah!

Hello and welcome to my Booksie page!

My penname is Iman T. S. Tyson.  I was born in small-town South Dakota but moved to a tiny village in Northern Minnesota several years back, which is where I currently call home.  My parents own a small hobby farm crawling with animals: 16 horses, 1 turkey, 25 chickens, 2 dogs, 2 cats, and some occasional wild critters.

I absolutely adore writing.  There’s just something about taking words – almost useless by themselves – and putting them together to create an amazing piece of work.  I’ve been writing almost as long as I’ve been able to write the alphabet – or so my mother tells me.  She loves to relate stories about the short books I would both author and illustrate when I was younger.  My passion is creative writing, and I concentrate mostly on novels and short stories.  However, while novels and short stories are easiest for me to write, I do like to work with other types of composition including analysis, persuasion, and journaling.  Most of my writing reflects my great fascination with South Asian culture and Islam.

A couple years ago, I made a decision that would change my life forever and for good: I converted to Islam. My conversion has lead to a roller coaster including both amazing euphoria and seemingly endless depression. I learned what it feels like to be persecuted by both my family and society just because my views were different, because I chose to believe what I wanted to believe. Yet, even through the toughest times, I wouldn’t have it any other way. And now, Islam has become a part of my life in every way, affecting what I read, what I write, how I think, how I feel, what I study, and more.  Insha’Allah I hope as time wears on I can focus my writing more on Islam than anything else.

I have a blog in progress where I post the majority of my Islamic writings.  If you’re interested in the Islamic writing I post here, I definitely suggest you come check out my blog (check out the link to the left, where it says ‘Other site’).

I can also be found on Twitter (ImanTSTyson) and Facebook (

I’ve created an email account so I can easily stay in contact with my fans or anyone interested in my work:  Feel free to drop me a line at any time!  I’d love to hear from you!
