S. (Shannon) A. Chakraborty is a NY-based speculative fiction writer and history buff. Her debut, The City of Brass, is the first book in an epic fantasy trilogy set in the 18th century Middle East; it will be published in November 2017 by Harper Voyager. Her short fiction has appeared in Crossed Genres, Expanded Horizons, The Future Fire, Fey Visions of the Mediterranean, and Kaleidocast. She is an organizer with the Brooklyn Speculative Fiction Writers’ Group, about which more information - including membership - can be found here.
Originally (and proudly!) from New Jersey, S. A. currently resides in Queens with her husband and daughter. When not buried in books about Mughal portraiture and Omani history, she enjoys hiking, knitting, and cooking unnecessarily complicated meals for her family. You can find her online most frequently at Twitter (@SChakrabs) where she likes to ramble about history, politics, and Islamic art.
