Arora was diagnosed with thalassemia when she was three months old. The illness forced her to leave school after the seventh grade.[3] However, she continued self-educating, eventually receiving an MA in English Literature and Applied Psychology.

Arora started working as a freelance writer in 2007. Her freelance career consisted mainly of abridging public domain English classics, of which she has done about 30. Her first novel was released in 2011, with her second and third novels coming out in 2014 and 2017. Her books are love stories revolving around serious themes.

In 2012, Arora earned the title of Samsung Mobilers (India) by winning a blogging competition. In 2016, she was invited to India's Republic Day Parade as one of the specially chosen "100 women achievers of India".

Arora has three sisters. She lives in Ghaziabad with her parents.[4]
