I wrote my first novel when I was 10 years old – about a horse, of course. Since then, my work has been shortlisted for the Dundee International Book Prize, the Bridport Prize, and the Berlin Writing Prize. My pronouns are she/her.
The Khadija Prophecy
There weren’t always dragons in the Valley. They had come down from the Himalayas and settled around Choti Gaon twelve years ago, around the same time Paro came to the village. Rajesh insists it was the very same day, but Auntie says that jinn can’t be trusted.
