Hi Jezz!

My inspiration came from my lifelong desire to have been able to go to the original Woodstock Music Festival in 1969. Sadly, I was not alive at the time, and I currently do not own a time machine, so writing this book was the only way I knew of to be able to fulfill that dream. I had a lot of fun immersing myself in the music and clothes of the era, and imagining myself at the festival, while I was writing it.

Thank you for your question!

Hi Jersey,

I started writing when I was about 7, which is right around the time I started voraciously reading on my own (mostly Beverly Cleary, Roald Dahl, and Ann M. Martin books). Books very quickly became a central part of my life and I think I knew very early on that I wanted to create stories as well as read them. Thank you for your question!(less)

VIRTUALLY YOURS IS OUT IN THE WORLD TODAY!

.

It’s about freshman year of college/13th grade, not being over your ex, common room movies, roommates and new friends, sibling shorthand, the power of AI and VR, and the power of finding yourself in the guise of finding love. Mostly, it’s a fun rom-com and I hope you’ll consider checking it out!

Also, if you want to watch me awkwardly try out Instagram Li

More of Sarvenaz's books…
“And who wouldn't wish that? Certainly everyone here- dressed up as aliens, and wizards, and zombies, and superheroes- wants desperately to be inside a story, to be part of something more logical and meaningful than real life seems to be. Because even worlds with dragons and time machines seem to be more ordered than our own. When you live for stories, when you spend so much of your time immersed in careful constructs of three and five acts, it sometimes feels like you're just stumbling through the rest of life, trying to divine meaningful narrative threads from the chaos. Which, as I learned the hard way this weekend, can be painfully fruitless. Fiction is there when real life fails you. But it's not a substitute.”
Sarvenaz Tash, The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love

“Sometimes all we have is the knowledge that something extraordinary exists in the universe, even if we can't be the ones to claim it. Sometimes that has to be enough.”
Sarvenaz Tash, The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love

“It's true - we never say what we mean. But for once, I want to.”
Sarvenaz Tash, The Geek's Guide to Unrequited Love
