My most recent novel, Edge of Light, is my version of the perfect sci-fi adventure, flavored with horror, conspiracy, action, and the loyalties found only in the closest of friendships. The book was published in November 2020 and has garnered praised from readers and critics alike. To read more about the book, check out the Edge of Light page.

I didn’t begin as a novelist with the sci-fi genre but in the world of multicultural YA. The Leaving of Things, my first novel (Lake Union, 2014) is a book about culture-shock and growing up as its young protagonist, transplanted from the U.S. to India in the late 1980s, learns to come to terms with his Indian roots and his American dreams as he takes charge of his own destiny.
