Thank you for stopping by. IN MY HANDS was written as a love letter to my grandparents, my South Indian Kodava culture, and heritage. It's the book my teenage-self longed for on bookshelves.
Packed with the adventure of Tomb Raider and the heart of Wonder Woman and inspired by South Indian folklore, IN MY HANDS has themes of belonging/identity, folklore, feminism/girl power, sisterhood, family, friendship, grief, love, courage, and South Asian representation.
I hope it finds its way into the hands of many young readers.
