Girl With Three Eyes is a new release! She would hate her third eye less if it actually gave her powers.

Merlin Raj and the Santa Algorithm, the first in my computer science humourous dog's tale, debuts under a new name D. G. Priya. Find it at Merlin Raj and the Santa-Algorithm, a computer science dog's tale. See the latest release Merlin Raj and the Drones of Sleepy Hollow

I love books of all kinds—lately funny and fantastical are my faves. But who couldn't curl up with a good romance?

My writing comes from a childhood of playing too much She-Ra and watching too much Spock. When Belle gasped at the library the Beast showed her, so did I! With how much time I spent there, I could have been the phantom of the public library.

I hand-wrote my firs

What is in a name? Why call her RYAN?
This is a question I get asked a lot... Here is the answer and I hope it will surprise you.
1. Genderbias is a real thing. We all know this. When I came up with the name Ryan, it was deliberate use for a girl stepping into the role of King Arthur. Throughout my childhood, I’ve been told 'NO.' You can’t do that because it’s too hard. You can’t become a techie because girls don’t do well in math. Well, I did. So can Ryan.
2. The idea that a girl can be a sword-toting savior isn’t new, but when I played with King Arthur's gender, I played with the idea—anyone can be a leader, a king. This glass ceiling is still something we all struggle to break through.
3. I love, love, love Shakespeare’s Twelvth Night. In this play, Viola disguises herself as "Cesario." Viola falls in love with Duke Orsino, Duke Orsino loves Olivia, and Olivia loves Viola disguised as Cesario. When I named Ryan, Vane, and Matt, I created another love triangle and played with the idea who you love isn’t based on gender. It is loyalty, faith, and that spark of something special.(less)

I am so glad you enjoyed Book 1. Kira Shine's adventure is far from over. Girl With Three Eyes is part of a much bigger picture I hope to paint with the Five Kingdoms. In the next book, I will be delving deeper into the kingdom, it's people, and the origin story of the Blessed. Expect more curveballs!

When Girl with Three Eyes is released, I will be posting a kingdom world map at blog.priyaardis.com. You can also expect to see a book from the First Kingdom (already drafted)!(less)

Girl With Three Eyes by Priya Ardis
“He eyed my creamy-ice. “You’ll be dead because of that stuff.”
“Your body is your temple. That’s why I’m giving it a treat.” I spooned out an extra-large bite and sucked on it slowly.
My insides swooned.”
