I am the author of several works for the Kindle, A Deconstructed Heart and my historical fiction short stories series: The Purana Qila Stories, which includes A Change in the Weather and The Dust Beneath Her Feet.

Background Information

I grew up in India and England, and my outsider's perspective has always drawn me to stories about India/Indians in the west, a theme I love to explore in my own writing. I am also inspired by my mother's tales of poverty in India and her journey fired my imagination from the smallest age. I began with poetry and moved into prose as I realized that good prose is full of poetry, with care taken so that each word is exactly right and reverberates with associations.


I won a national essay competition about life in India held by the Indian High Commission in England and have been published in the Cadbury's Book of Children's Poetry, Tomorrow magazine and Nadopasana One.

Additional Information

A Change in the Weather will be free for download for the Kindle on 1/25/2013-1/27/2013 at Amazon. A Change in the Weather and The Dust Beneath Her Feet are part of a series of interconnected short stories that center around Indian families who are connected geographically and/or across generations, both in India and in the west. The Dust Beneath Her Feet is about a tough mother of young girls, whose husband has left to find work during Partition.
