My story


Author, Writer, Novelist, Journalist, Radio Presenter and Speaker, with a back ground in gender base violence and domestic abuse.

Hello! Welcome to my website. I’m Rasheda Ashanti Malcolm and I write novels, women’s romantic fiction. My first novel, Swimming With Fishes was published in 2017 and my second, Love Again, in 2020.

I am now working on my third novel, with a fourth in the pipeline and a non-fiction book, my first non-fiction, which is aimed at first-time writers and women who want to write but can’t find the motivation or inspiration. In this space, you will find out a bit more about me and my books, and any up-to-date news, such as tour dates and literary events.

My third novel Life Happens is nearly finished. It’s a story of three sisters who grew with their emotionally constipated father after their mother died when they were all young. Two of the sisters were heartbreakingly separated from their youngest sister, an albino, by their father with no explanations. The sisters spend the next twenty-five years trying to find each other while working their way through the chaotic journey called life. I wrote the first draft of this book in 2019 in six weeks. I thoroughly enjoyed writing it, meeting the characters, and hearing their stories. I can truthfully tell you that to date I have never loved writing a book more. I do hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it when it’s published.

In the meantime, do check out my two other novels.
