Sejal Sinha chapter book series to be published by Aladdin

I'm delighted to share that I also have a new STEM chapter book series that will be published by Simon & Schuster/ Aladdin. And yes, in case you wondered, it has been a bit of whirlwind year for me, publishing-wise, but don't think that it all happened overnight! All my projects have been in the making for years. I was writing for well over a decade before getting the deal for my YA, Fall Winter Spring Summer.

 Sejal Battles Super Storms was very much inspired by 7yo daughter and her love of science facts and cardboard box adventures with her stuffed cheetah! I'm trilled that she'll one day see it in print.

Alyson Heller at Aladdin has bought debut chapter book Sejal Battles Super Storms by Maya Prasad, first in a new series that follows an Indian American girl with an active imagination and a love of STEM, who uses science to save her family's Diwali celebration on the night of a storm. Publication is set for spring 2023; Penny Moore at Aevitas Creative Management negotiated the three-book deal for world rights.
