Aviya Carmen grew up as a huge fan of Christian Andersen’s fairytales, and martial art stories. She started writing stories at a young age and took up poetry writing in high school. After completing her Master’s degree in engineering, she attempted several novels, but none turned into full-length fiction until the Legend of Prince Ayron was born.
“The White Forest” is her debut novel. It was inspired by her hike on the Grouse mountains in Vancouver, Canada, and the breathtaking scenery of Scotland.
In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, visiting castles, learning about ancient cultures, and tackling new languages.
She is a member of the Alliance of Independent Authors (ALLi), Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), and a certified children’s author (WriteStoryBooksForChildren.com).
