My name is Thanvi Voruganti, I live in Chandler, Arizona with my parents. Besides writing and poetry, my hobbies include reading, playing tennis, and traveling. Reading and writing though, will always be my number one.
I recently found my passion for poetry, it was during the summer of 2020 to be specific. The forced summer staycation because of the pandemic was the most monotonous, dreary two months of my life. Outdoors in Arizona were boiling and blistering with heat. The quarantine closed the cool pools, and relaxing beaches, no time with relatives absolutely nothing pleasant to do. I scribbled down some fantasy short stories, played some joyful, soothing music on the piano, yet still found myself bored out of my wits. I attempted to binge-watch comedies to provide a few laughs. One day, near the end of June, I decided out of pure boredom, to write a verse or two of soothing poetry. Once I dug a little deeper into it, I realized that I took great relish in and admired poetry. I started writing about fantasy/fairytales, science fiction, deep thoughts, and more. By the end of summer, I found a new hobby and interest that became close to me.
It was a wonderful experience to write a book and it was even more thrilling publishing it. I hope reading my poems brings you some joy as writing them has brought me, it has been an accomplishment and I thank everybody who has helped me through this journey.
