Introduction Welcome to my Scriptorium, my online Writing Room. I love to connect with other writers, so grab a chair, a cup of coffee, a bar of chocolate and we will discuss stories, books, writing, works in progress, characters, plots, marketing, titles and many other things related to writing and publishing.
Interests The written word has fascinated me from the time I could read. I read books across several genres: both fiction as well as non- fiction. I write Middle Grade Fiction, Short Stories, as well as Picture Books, though I prefer to call them books with illustrations. There are two books with illustrations out there with my name on, as well as few Puffin Anthologies. I have been published in several newspapers in India. I can get lost while writing and reading. As a writer I have travelled a lot through my imagination to fictitious worlds and befriended strange and fascinating characters. These characters haunt me until I write their stories. Reading, Writing, Long Walks, Visiting Museums and Libraries.
