I write articles and short stories for a number of Indian-American and Indian publications including India Abroad, India Currents, Sulekha.com, DesiJournal.com, Little India, Kanara Saraswat, New Woman India and Leaves magazines.
My first full-length novel titled THE DOWRY BRIDE, was released by Kensington Books in September 2007.
Praise for the book
THE DOWRY BRIDE is "Remarkable...imaginative, packed with detail. Adroitly depicting passion, brutality, cultures in conflict. This novel is as engrossing as it is unusual." says Dorothy Garlock, Bestselling author
Bantwal takes a brave look at an old topic and delivers a piece of work that may just make an impact. Wonderful, Vivid, and Worth Reading!
THE DOWRY BRIDE is available at all major bookstores nationwide and all online booksellers. Readers can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
