She has to her credit a wide range of books that have won national and international awards, some of them being NOMA (thrice), Iran Gold Plaque and the Hans Christian Anderson Honorary Diploma. Her other interests include photography of which she's held several exhibitions across the world, and journalism. She has been the chief editor of the popular Iranian magazine Zan-e-Rooz.
