I worked as an economics consultant for many years, most recently as Principal, before I began to write fiction. My stories have appeared or will appear in Calyx, Epiphany, Juked, Salt Hill, The Florida Review, The Normal School, and other journals. You can read excerpts of my work on the Fiction page and access a list of publications here.
My work has received nominations for the Pushcart Prize (twice) and the Best of the Net anthology, and I’ve been awarded the Gish Jen Emerging Writer’s fellowship by the Writers’ Room of Boston. There. That was my awards and recognition paragraph.
I’m currently working on a collection of stories that explore aspects of Indian culture and emerge in a variety of narrative forms. I also enjoy writing humor and have published pieces at venues such as Points in Case, The Higgs Weldon, and Defenestration.
I hold an MFA degree in Writing from Warren Wilson College and a Ph.D. in Finance from Michigan State University. I very much enjoyed working in the area of finance. If you would like to know more, my pre-writing CV is here.
I grew up in south India and live in Boston.
