Vijaya Schartz,
Author & Arizona Resident

Vijaya Schartz
Born and raised in France, Vijaya Schartz wrote her first poem at 6 and started her first book as a teenager, but she abandoned the project upon discovering that Plato had already written The Republic around 380 BC. Later, she traveled the world and studied Yoga in India, where she translated spiritual texts from English into French for limited publication. She also resided in Hawaii, Florida, and Philadelphia and now lives in Phoenix, Arizona, with her husband and their two cats. Dare devil since a young age, Vijaya became a gymnast in France, a surfer and a martial artist in Hawaii, a climber and a skydiver in Arizona. Her next dare: white water rafting. Vijaya is also the current President of the Arizona Authors Association. Ashes for the Elephant God is her first novel in print and already received great reviews, but her second novel, Archangel Crusader, will be released in November 2000, and Archangel Checkmate, the sequel, is expected for April 2001.
