Author bio

Student and novice writer trying to get my first book published. The novel has no title as of yet, but its blurb is copied below. My work focuses on thriller/suspense, but I branch out when I can. I love reading short stories on Reedsy, especially from writers with less experience (such as myself). Some of my favorite, popular short stories include "The Egg" by Andy Weir and "The Yellow Wallpaper" by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. My book (unnamed, WIP): Atlas is an old world. With new rules. Dark magic has created a ruthless empire, a sanction against freedom, and a rajah of deadly dominion. When her caretaker disappears under foul circumstances, Priya and her companions must venture into the Atlas to save her, with scarce chance of returning home. She soon discovers how her own twisted fate intertwines with this mystical universe, and the old god that led her there. Now, she must choose between an ill-fated home or her true destiny.
