Ashriya Rathakrishnan is a first generation Sri Lankan Canadian born and lives in Uxbridge, Ontario. She is currently in the sixth grade and spends her time outside of the classroom practicing carnatic vocal music and is a decorated public speaker for youth leadership program. Writing a novel has always been on Ashriya’s mind, and eventually, with The Magic Portal, it became a reality. In her downtime she can be found curled up on the couch with a book in hand. Admittedly a Potter-head, Ashriya draws much of the inspiration for her own writing and local engagement from that of J.K. Rowling.
