Sarwat Chadda

A lifelong gamer, Sarwat Chadda decided to embrace his passion for over-the-top, wild adventure stories by trading in a stable twenty-year career in engineering for a highly unstable, brand-new one as a writer. That resulted in his first novel, Devil’s Kiss, back in 2009.

Since then he has been published in a dozen languages, writing comic books, TV shows, and novels, such as the award-winning Indian mythology–inspired Ash Mistry series, the epic high fantasy Shadow Magic trilogy (as Joshua Khan), and City of the Plague God for Rick Riordan Presents.

While he’s traveled far and wide in places that include Africa, the Middle East, Europe, Asia, and the Americas, he’s most at home in London, where he lives with his wife, two more-or-less grown-up daughters, and an aloof cat. And, yes, he still runs his Dungeons & Dragons game every Wednesday.
