Ever since I was a little girl, I loved books. My home is in Chennai, a city that is very special to me. Growing up in Chennai with my grandparents, I heard amazing stories from them which would leave me enraptured.

After studying English Literature in college, I took many creative writing classes in India and the USA.Then I began writing my first novel and never looked back.

Watching plays, sports, mythology and doing eco-friendly things like composting and recycling are some of my hobbies. Speaking of recycling and waste reduction, it has become a passionate obsession of mine! I also adore fashion, Audrey Hepburn and Hitchcock movies (don't you?) My iPod is something I love and music on it ranges from Celtic Thunder to Adele to Indian music.

My favourite authors are Daphne du Maurier, Salman Rushdie and the one and only Jane Austen.
