Description: Story is determined by cup-fulls of character and plot. A story’s universe is determined by dollops of world-building. Multicultural stories, however, require spice and recipes that are far more complex and sweetened with the depth of character, plot, and universe. Join Anju Gattani as she breaks ground with story worlds like Avatar, The Martian, The Kite Runner, and her Winds of Fire series. Anju will dissect the components of great world-building, flesh out secret ingredients that contribute to a roller-coaster terrain, and weave details that will leave your readers trapped in the world of your story.


Anju Gattani is a fiction author, freelance journalist, writing instructor, blogger, and former newspaper reporter. She was born in India, grew up in Hong Kong, and has lived and been published in Singapore, India, Australia, New Jersey and Connecticut. Her publications include cover stories, fiction, features, news, interviews, travel, perspective pieces and more. She finally dug her roots in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, with her husband, two dashing boys and a rebel lion-head rabbit. Duty and Desire, the debut in her Winds of Fire series, is slated for release in June 2020. Anju hopes her books will bridge cultures and break barriers. Visit www.anjugattani.com.
