Pen name A. A. Vora
(she / her)
Writer | reader | high fantasy fangirl
I'm an Indian-Japanese* author living in Tokyo with my husband Shotaro, our newborn, and our fiery-spirited dog Fëanor.
After two decades of immersing myself in various fictional worlds (some favorites being displayed on my bookshelf) I decided it was time I attempted creating one of my own.
Outside writing, I work for a pharmaceutical company, with a focus on digitalization of Japanese healthcare.
*By this I mean indokei nihonjin (インド系日本人) which is a phrase used to describe Japanese nationals of Indian ethnicity; I was actually born in Mumbai and lived there a third of my life; as well as spending several years in US and UK.
About my book
My debut SPIN OF FATE - pitched to my agent as Naruto x The Golden Compass - is a 3 POV YA high fantasy, and the first installment of THE FIFTH REALM trilogy. It features epic battles, original mythical beasts, a hard magic system that draws loosely from Indian philosophy... and lots of moral ambiguity.
You can pre-order SPIN OF FATE here.
