I'm Wera.

I am an Asian & Black historical fantasy author of The Secrets of Tarot Series and Any Way the Wind Blows. Inspired by East and Southeast Asian mythology, my stories typically feature female, Asian protagonists and incorporate common xianxia and wuxia themes.

My stories explore important topics, such as Asian diaspora & xenophobia, trauma, mental health stigmas, standards of beauty in Asian culture, identity & self-confidence, and racism, discrimination, & bias.

I have a B.A. in Spanish and M.S. in Criminology & Criminal Justice, with a specialization in crime analysis and geographic information systems. I currently work as a volunteer for Wattpad HQ as a Senior Engagement Ambassador, where I strive to uplift the voices of authors who specialize in Asian Fantasy & Fiction.

When I'm not writing, I enjoy watching Asian dramas or superhero movies with my husband and younger brother & eating dim sum with my mother.
