Author of Young Adult and Children's Literature
It's a privilege and an honor to write for teens and children. I believe in the importance of joyful representation: for marginalized readers to see themselves as the leads in romance, coming-of-age, and adventure stories, and for society as a whole to see them as leads as well.
I have two series that I am over the moon to share with the world:
My YA duology begins with Drizzle, Dreams, and Lovestruck Things, featuring four Indian American sisters as they navigate new passions, breathtaking kisses, and the bustle of their father's cozy cliffside inn in the Pacific Northwest. Published by Disney-Hyperion, it's available now! Learn more.
Sejal Sinha Battles Superstorms is the first in my three-book STEM chapter book series for kids ages 5-10, about an Indian American girl with a big imagination who travels into the eye of a hurricane via her trusty cardboard box to save her family's Diwali celebration. It will be released in May '23 from Simon & Schuster / Aladdin. Learn more.
I hope you'll check them out!
