About Amrit Chima

Born into a family with a history of inspiring migratory adventures, she has followed suit, traveling to over thirty countries, most notably India and Fiji, both of which are settings in her debut novel Darshan (an IndieReader literary fiction selection).

When time affords (which is not often enough), she writes carefully thought-out reviews for multi-layered, profoundly engaging novels. One such review earned her fifteen seconds of fame on the BBC World Book Club’s discussion of The Stranger by Albert Camus.

She holds an MFA from Emerson College in Boston, and after two years in Budapest, Hungary teaching English she is now back home in the San Francisco Bay Area. She spends her free time working on her second novel, as well as curating a fresh, new SF reading series called anthology (www.anthologysf.com).
