Puja Guha began writing in 2010 by participating in the National Novel Writing Month (Nanowrimo). The idea for THE AHRIMAN LEGACY struck her during a family vacation shortly before that. She has lived in Kuwait, Toronto, Paris, London, and several American cities including New York, Washington DC, and San Francisco. She is a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania with work experience in finance and health care consulting. After completing a master's degree in public policy from London School of Economics and Sciences Po, she is now working as an independent consultant on international development programs, primarily in Africa and South Asia. AHRIMAN: THE SPIRIT OF DESTRUCTION is her first novel.
