Deepika Kumaaraguru

Being an author, it’s predictable I’m a passionate reader, but I also love animals, nature, observing human attitude and cheering people up. My trusted best friends and cousin sisters keep me tied to the reality of the world and soothe me while I dedicate all my time to the fantasy world that’s featured in the Ethereal series.

Do you have one sentence of advice for new writers?

Got only one character in your hand? Got only one idea for the story you're intending to star her/him in? That's all you need. Just write. Keep writing. The character has become alive the moment they were born in your head and they will guide you through and introduce you to the other people and their purpose in their lives.

Warm salutations to everyone, I am Deepika Ishwarya Kumaaraguru, a content owner of a bachelor’s degree in one of the most fascinating courses to exist, Home Science with Food Bio-Technology. I moved around a lot, both in UK and India, and this lead me to study in twelve schools, the experience which gave me a wonderful lesson. Ethereal was born while staring out of the living room window on a rainy afternoon in 2011 and after I published my debut novel, Dance Dream, in 2014, I took up my dream project by staying home as a full-time writer. I am an avid reader with the habit of sleeping next to books, and cannot bear to witness anyone keep poor conditions of them. I also nurture a desire to pet a dolphin or an orca one day and idolise J. K. Rowling as well as American country/pop singer Taylor Swift. You can visit Discover Deepika ( to check out my blog and can get in touch with me at To the divine energy that completes and protects me, I surrender and passionately chant Jai Shree Krishna.
