About

Hi! My name is Sana Patel (pronounced Sun-nuh Puh-tell). I moved to the States from India when I was very young and grew up in Texas. Yes, I have a southern accent. Yes, I grew up on Indian, BBQ, Tex-Mex, Mexican, and soul food. Yum! Part of my waking hours are spent advancing space research, playing with animals, and binge-watching Netflix. I write YA/MG featuring Own Voices, romance, and kick-butt girls.

Fun Facts About Me:
~I love chocolates from around the world. I’ve had chocolates made with cow, goat, sheep, and camel milk.
~I have no chill with baby animals, especially puppies and goats.
~In high school, I was on the volleyball and softball team, tried out (and failed) cheerleading, took mixed martial arts, and in college was exposed to the gripping world of female Muy Thai fighters. (Don’t mess with me!)
~BlueBell ice-cream encompasses my entire childhood.
~I love color and sparkles.

I am represented by Katelyn Detweiler of Jill Grinberg Literary Management.
