I not only have an author of a YA science fiction book to introduce today, but the author is an 8th grader!!
Isn’t that awesome!!
Please meet Tejas…
I was born in Turlock, California in 2005 and currently live with my younger brother Mihir and parents in Modesto, California. Currently, I am in 8th grade at Prescott Middle School. Some of my extracurricular activities include karate, playing the piano, swimming, and riding horses. My passion for writing started when I was in second grade. When we were younger, my brother and I would use toys and Lego minifigures to act out and enhance the stories from movies and books we enjoyed. These stories made an impression on me and I wanted to capture and save them in written form, thus I began to write. My initial writings were short stories made up of two chapters, about a paragraph each with illustrations. After I had continued to write more and gained a better grasp of vocabulary, I made the first draft of my debut book, Infinity: The Secret of the Diamonds.
It took me four years to perfect the final draft of this book. This book is about an 18-year-old adolescent named Jack who lives in New York City with his father and uncle. His father and uncle are inventors and astronomers. When his father invents an interdimensional rift machine, Jack notices that his dad starts exhibiting strange behaviors. A set of circumstances lead Jack to meet the Infinity Corps, a galactic special ops team which protects the five Infinity diamonds that created the galaxy. Conflict arises when an evil warlord comes to the city in search for the diamonds, and Jack, his family, and the Corps must protect the diamonds and the city. I drew inspiration for this book from Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), Pirates of the Caribbean, and astronomy concepts. This is the first of a 6 book series under the Infinity title. I hope to inspire others to follow their dreams and passions, for they may never know where it will lead to. All proceeds from the book sales will go to a children’s hospital. I wish all future authors the best of luck!
