Aria Rani Sindledecker loves to read dystopian and sci-fi books, write and swim. She is 11 years old and lives with her mom, dad and dog named Wicket. She started writing her first Upper Middle Grade novel, Age of Aliens: Safire & Igneous Description, the summer before she turned 10. Aria is inspired by women who have grit. Her favorite subjects are math and science. She wants to be a doctor when she grows up so she can make a difference in people’s lives. All of the proceeds of her book are going to Worldreader.
