Sathya Achia was born and raised in a small town in Southwestern Ontario in Canada, where she grew up devouring books, playing along the pebbly shores of Lake Huron, and dreaming about writing her own stories of adventure and folklore. By day, Sathya is an award-winning communications professional who currently serves as a senior editor at one of the world's largest global advertising agencies in New Jersey, USA. Her creative work is influenced by her South Indian Kodava culture. She spent many summers in the remote hills and enchanting jungles of the Western Ghats in India, where she learned the art of storytelling from her grandparents. When not spinning stories, Sathya can be found trying a new yoga pose, exploring the great outdoors, traveling the world, or wrapped up in her greatest adventure of all: Motherhood.
