Tasha Suri was born in Harrow, North-West London. The daughter of Punjabi parents, she spent many childhood holidays exploring India with her family, and still fondly remembers the time she was chased around the Taj Mahal by an irate tour guide. She studied English and Creative Writing at Warwick University, and now lives in London where she works as a librarian. To no one's surprise, she owns a cat. A love of period Bollywood films, history and mythology led her to begin writing South Asian influenced fantasy.

Tasha Suri recommends
The Woods All Black (2024)
Lee Mandelo
"The Woods All Black is a hopeful, wrathful meditation on monstrous religiosity and queer survival. A bloody, howling catharsis of a book."
Fathomfolk (2024)
(Drowned World, book 1)
Eliza Chan
"A thrilling, incisive fantasy of diaspora and dragons, Fathomfolk is an unmissable debut. If you're hungry for a beautiful Southeast Asian influenced fantasy with razor-sharp edges, this book is for you."
Faebound (2024)
(Faebound, book 1)
Saara El-Arifi
"Faebound is a devastatingly romantic and breathtaking fantasy. Opulent and sweeping, this book is unforgettable."
