Sisters Aged 6 and 10 Use Covid-19 To Become Authors

Writers are trained professionals in most instances. Every now and again writers are born with talent, this family has this ability in abundance with two terrific writers, Anushka just turned ten! Anushka’s first book took her almost a year, the second book was quicker, about six months Arushi is six years old her book took almost one year to write. It was a great feeling to receive the first author’s copy. Both the girls were very excited to see their books published!

Just like Serena Williams followed in her sister Venus’ footsteps, young author Arushi Bhattacharjee is following in her sister Anushka’s. At age eight Anushka published her first book. Born in Arkansas but now residing in Toronto. She started reading at the age of two. She is an avid reader, a regular member of the local libraries since she was a toddler, and has read over one thousand library books just in the past year. While stuck at home during the pandemic, she wanted to do something constructive and that’s how she nurtured the idea of writing a book.

In her book Titled The Magic Mirror published on June 21, 2021, Lilliana the fairy needs help in different Fairy Tales. Ara and Felice are the lucky ones chosen for these adventures. Lilliana teleports them into the Tales where they twist the plot of the traditional stories.

The Wishing Tree was published less than one year later on April 27, 2022, and The Wasp has escaped! It has been a thousand years since the great hero, Cordelia, captured the Wasp. With his superpowers, the Wasp can exercise mind control over any unmagical creature on this planet.

Arushi born in Texas started writing The Adventurous Kids when she was just five years old. Now at age six, she studies in Grade 1 at Seneca Trail Public School. One night she dreamed of being slurped up by a book and began nurturing her dream by turning it into a book and publishing it on June 2, 2022. We sat down with the two amazing sisters to get some input on their books and the journey of discovery they took putting the words to paper.
