About me

I’m an author, actor and blogger. I’ve worked as a copywriter at Ogilvy & Mather, taught French and theatre at The Alliance Française de Madras, and written and directed plays after a five-year spell with the theatre troupe Magic Lantern. My first novel, The Purple Line, published by Harper Collins India was shortlisted for the Shakti Bhatt First Book Prize 2012, and the French translation, Journal d’une accoucheuse, was published by Actes Sud in May 2014. I live in Boston, Massachusetts with my husband and daughter, reading, doing yoga and feverishly working on my second novel.
