Annika Sharma was born in New Delhi and brought up in the United States, where she moved with her parents as a baby. She graduated from Penn State University with degrees in Biobehavioral Health and Neuropsychology, with minors in Biology and Human Development and Family Studies. Upon graduating college, she worked at a preschool to become more comfortable working with young children in the hopes of becoming a nurse practitioner. While there, she was recruited into a Master's program at Penn State, graduating in 2013 with her M. Ed in Early Childhood Special Education. In the month before beginning graduate school, she wrote her first novel, The Rearranged Life, a New Adult story about an Indian girl who, after aiming for medical school and coming to terms with an arranged marriage, falls in love with an American.
Annika currently daylights as a preschool teacher. She can often be found with her nose in a book, utilizing her encyclopedic knowledge of celebrities to impress friends while indulging in coffee dates, cheering on college football games and traveling to new places. Her bucket list includes skydiving, visiting every continent and attending a ball. Annika lives in State College, PA.
Annika is represented by Stacey Donaghy for her new adult series beginning with book one, THE REARRANGED LIFE.
