Maya Svevak is an author, artist, and activist, who takes an inter-disciplinary and multi-perspective approach to her work. Through her fictional writing, Maya aspires to absorb readers into the fascinating, often mystical worlds of people who are marginalized and ignored: the indigenous, dark-skinned, disabled, exploited, and abused. In her non-fictional essays, Maya draws on her training as a scientist and lawyer to clearly lay out the links between cause and effect, so that readers can expand their understanding of the realities that afflict us locally and globally. Maya has worked at the grassroots level with disenfranchised communities around the world, where she continues to meet awe-inspiring individuals. She is a global citizen, who has lived in many different countries, and so has had the good fortune to understand the human experience from a rich variety of perspectives and cultural contexts. She hopes to transition to writing full-time very soon.
