Hi there! I hope you'll follow me on GR for updates and on Instagram and Twitter, where I post about my books, my process, and random musings. Hope to see you there!

I was born in Sweden to Indian and Swedish parents and have lived in lots of places, including New York, Paris, and a tiny town in central Italy. I attended Yale College and New York University, where I earned a Ph.D. in British literature. Before becoming a novelist (what I'd always dreamed of becoming if I didn't become a spy), I taught classes on writing and fairy tales—some of which have seeped into my stories.

“Magicians needed sorrow. And deep sorrow existed only because of love.”
Gita Trelease, Enchantée

“This was the Paris of the strivers, of those who dwelt low, not high. This was not the Paris of balloonists. It was her Paris, and it was the same as it had been this morning. But she, perhaps, was not.”
Gita Trelease, Enchantée

“Remember – magic is a cheater’s game, and everyone who sees it wants to play.”
Gita Trelease, Enchantée
