Rabia Gale creates strange worlds in peril and the flawed heroes who save them. She is passionate about faith and duty, redemption and identity. She loves the alchemical zing of putting ideas together in fun ways: dragons in space, mecha and magic, runes and the Regency era. Her work ranges freely across the entire fantasy spectrum.
Rabia was born and grew up in Karachi, Pakistan. She moved from that hot and rambunctious city to considerably colder rural New England and learned to love fall and maple syrup. She currently resides in Virginia, where she homeschools her children, gardens with haphazard enthusiasm, and participates in far too many book clubs.
Her writing influences include the works of Diana Wynne Jones, Joan Aiken, and Rosemary Sutcliff, as well as Studio Ghibli movies, 80’s cartoons, and anime.
