Shanti Hershenson


I am a thirteen-year-old author of several books. I currently have two novellas (part of a longer series) published in a series, and my debut novel, Biome Lock (part of a trilogy, actually), will be published in August. I started working on Biome Lock during the pandemic, when I was twelve-years-old, but I've been writing for as long as I can remember. I also am working on a poetry book, and I just finished a dystopian stand-alone novel titled The Accidental Insurgent.

I live in Carlsbad with my parents, my sister, and my three furry friends.

I write in a variety of genres, including Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Poetry, although my preferred genre is Sci-Fi.

I advocate for anti-bullying, and you may find me at open mic-nights, performing my spoken word poems. My favorite is called Needles & Thorns, which is about the struggle of bullying in middle schools.
