Roshani Chokshi comes from a small town in Georgia where she collected a Southern accent, but does not use it unless under duress. She grew up in a blue house with a perpetually napping bear-dog. At Emory University, she dabbled with journalism, attended some classes in pajamas, forgot to buy winter boots and majored in 14th century British literature. She spent a year after graduation working and traveling and writing. After that, she started law school at the University of Georgia where she's learning a new kind of storytelling.

Roshani Chokshi recommends
Arya Khanna's Bollywood Moment (2024)
Arushi Avachat
"A tender coming-of-age story that navigates fraught friendships, first loves and the thorny love of family. Avachat is a fresh and sparkling voice, and sure to be a star on the rise."
Zhara (2023)
(Guardians of Dawn, book 1)
S Jae-Jones
"Guardians of Dawn: Zhara is the kind of fantasy that first made me a reader. Tender and bewitching, joyous and thoroughly transporting. Zhara and Han are not just protagonists you root for, but characters you feel you've known your whole life. S. Jae-Jones weaves a spell on every page."
Psyche and Eros (2023)
Luna McNamara
"Every page is a breathless, swoonworthy adventure."
Ink Blood Sister Scribe (2023)
Emma Törzs
"Chilling and charming in equal parts, Torz's debut is a love letter to stories everywhere."
That Self-Same Metal (2023)
(Forge & Fracture Saga, book 1)
Brittany N Williams
"Every sentence of That Self-Same Metal will thunder through your bones. Rich in place and time, with a steely protagonist at its center, I felt like I'd been spirited to another land and time."
Lucha of the Night Forest (2023)
Tehlor Kay Mejia
"What's really extraordinary is Mejia's message of empowerment. . . that no matter how dark the forest, we can always choose our path."
