About Me

I'm a South Asian American author, a Caltech graduate, and a former software engineer. I now reside in the Pacific Northwest, where I enjoy hiking, canoeing, and raising my budding bookworm daughter.

My YA debut Fall Winter Spring Summer will be published by Disney-Hyperion in fall 2022. I'm also a contributor to the anthology Foreshadow: Stories to Celebrate the Magic of Reading and Writing YA (Algonquin Young Readers, October 2020). I've had short fiction published on the Foreshadow digital platform and at Cast of Wonders. A recipient of the We Need Diverse Books mentorship program, I'm passionate about creating brown girl leads in children’s literature.

I'm represented by Penny Moore at Aevitas Creative Management.
