Maya Lotus is from Salt Lake City, Utah. She was twenty years old when she wrote Beautiful Disaster. All of her writing is about her real-life experiences. A self-taught philosopher, she proudly considers herself a professional. She immensely enjoys driving, is nocturnal, wears strictly sweatpants, and refuses to rush herself for anyone or anything. She enjoys making plans of saving the world and has full confidence that she will succeed in doing so. She is captivated by the idea of being seen and she loves to make people feel seen. Maya wants you to know that by taking the time to read her writing you are fulfilling her wildest dreams. For that she is beyond grateful.
