Shashi Bora

Cover of my first fantasy novel

Choose your own adventure books appealed to me as a kid.  There was something magical about flipping a hundred pages into a book and seeing my choice right there.  Did you ever reread the book over and over again in an attempt to discover the formula?  I played “what if” games endlessly with my collection of books.  Open the chest!  Wait, do NOT open the chest.

Shashi Bora is a teen witch in the mythical classical sense.  Like most teens, Shashi is unsure of her world and bored with the prospects of what lies in front of her.  She lives in a small village in a jungle.  To complicate the plot, her village is off in the middle or edge of nowhere.  Like millions of teens past and present, she doesn’t have a future–until a visitor comes to the village.  She seizes the opportunity to leave her apprenticeship to a master witch and sets off on adventure.

I wrote Shashi Bora as a strong teen character set in India.  India, to me, is a land of magic.  The rich Hindi mythology is absolutely fascinating, so I immersed Shashi in that  environment.  Like the choose your own adventure novels, I ended up making her path a linear series of choices.  This being my first fantasy novel, I was more concerned with actually penning a cohesive work.  Still, Shashi is very likable and very readable.  Enjoy!
