Simar Malhotra is the author of teen novel There is a Tide. From New Delhi, she’s studying English at Stanford University and is the winner of the Bocock/Guerard Fiction prize there. Her work has been published in the Goldman Review and Topiary magazine. Simar’s penchant for storytelling was sparked as a child playing make-believe games. When she's not curled up on her blue beanbag with a book, you can catch her doing Muay Thai, singing in the shower or cuddling with all things furry.
