For the dreamers and the restless

There are people with minds that never rest, who waltz across a million worlds, charging the air around them with ideas and intensity.

They are the dreamers and the restless, stirring spaces that confine them until strands of magic escape.


Of starlight and song.

They open half-dreamed-of dimensions, then dive inside and surface at another place and time. Who conjure beauty out of bleakness, hope out of pain, and new worlds from darkness.

These are the people I write about.
These are the people I write for.


Welcome, stranger. Welcome, my friend.

“The world is full of magic things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper.”

About Swati

Swati Chavda is an author, a neurosurgeon, and a self-proclaimed Dark Lord.

She blends epic fantasy with a touch of science fiction, adding humour, quests, and adventures that cross the boundaries of space and time. Legends, folklore, and Earth’s geological past influence her story-worlds.

She also writes weird tales and funny satirical fantasy, inspired by the gallows humor from her neurosurgery days — where death and darkness were her constant companions, and humor was the least toxic method to cope.

Her characters tend to seek answers to questions ranging from “Is there life after death?” to “Should there be life before breakfast?” She uses too many commas, too few coffee breaks — and there’s a constant battle waging in her head between British and American spelling.
