Georgina Kamsika is a speculative fiction writer born in Yorkshire, England, to British Asian immigrant parents and has spent most of her life explaining her English first name, Polish surname and South Asian features.
DI Sara Nayar is not the bright young police detective she seems to be; she’s actually a Hindu goddess living as a human after a dispute with her mother, the trickster goddess Mohini.
When a man is murdered at Sheffield Castle Market, Sara senses that another god is involved– perhaps the Norse god Loki. But setting aside her divine nature has left Sara dangerously vulnerable.
With the help of her partner, the attractive DI Michael Higgins, Sara must uncover both the human and divine reasons for the crime and protect the city she loves.

I’m using this Patreon to connect with people who are interested in my work. As a second-generation immigrant, I write novels and short stories mostly about desi diaspora based in the UK. I also consume as much desi media as I can and review it in my monthly roundups.
I offer my expertise as a British South Asian to read your work and give you feedback on whether you are perpetuating stereotypes and actively harming people like me, or help you fine tune small details to make your characters more authentic. I want to help you make your story featuring desi characters as good as you can make it.

It’s here! The end of the Write-a-thon! I’ve kept up the pace quite well, with many new words added to our space opera. I’ve really had a chance to sink my teeth into this world and it’s blossoming into a story I’m really proud of. Thanks to the great re-working of the plot in week […]
The UK has been hit with a heatwave, so I’ve not been quite as motivated as getting words down. That didn’t stop me from working on our space opera, I just worked earlier in the morning and later in the evenings. I’ve focused on a slightly different POV character and really tried to get into […]
I’ve really dug into our space opera this week. Thanks to our plot brainstorm last week, I’ve had a lot of new scenes to add to our early draft. Interestingly, it’s a subplot I’d always wanted to do when I originally had the idea for the novel that had dropped to the wayside. Now it’s […]
Last week I mentioned that there might be some changes after Luke attended his novel workshop. I was right, he had some great ideas and new tools which we applied to our space opera. We knew we had a great overall idea for a trilogy with a huge overall arc but hadn’t quite nailed down […]
For Week Two I’ve been busying digging into our space opera as mentioned last week. I’m really happy with the main outline of the novel, but I’m excited to include any new ideas Luke might have after his two-week stint at the CSSF SF Novel Writers Workshop. Because of that, I’ve not set anything too […]
