Aru Shah and the End of Time (www.roshanichokshi.com) and its best-selling successors, Aru Shah and the Song of Death, Aru Shah and the Tree of Wishes, Aru Shah and the City of Gold, and Aru Shah and the Nectar of Immortality, were all instant New York Times best-sellers. She's also the author of best-selling YA novels like The Star-Touched Queen and The Golden Wolves. She majored in fairy tales in college and once had a pet luck dragon that looked strangely like a Great Pyrenees dog. Roshani's all-consuming enthusiasm for Sailor Moon, as well as the stories her grandmother told her, inspired the Pandava quintet. She says y'all because she lives in the south, but she doesn't have a Southern accent. @roshani_chokshi is her Twitter handle.
